Today we finally saw our first glacier of the trip. It was Becci’s first glacier ever. She was pumped. When we arrived last night we could kind of see the glacier in the twilight. An edge of it was peeking in under the clouds, broad and thick between […]
Everything we did today smelled bad. It was all fun, and I’m glad we did it…but it stank. We sorta knew it would. Let me back up a bit. We may have mentioned that we stayed for the last couple of days in a room we rented from […]
We’ve been driving a bunch since we last met. As you know, a good road trip requires five things…the second of which is a trusty means of locomotion. Enter, our new best friend Jimny. As previously mentioned, the format of this visit to Iceland is a fairly […]
Back in the Saddle Have you missed us? We’re back. We sure missed you. And we missed the road. This time around we are visiting the land of fire and ice. But it wasn’t Game of Thrones that inspired this trip; rather, we were first inspired to visit […]
Getting to Australia was harder than we thought. We had long ago decided to fly to Australia from Bangkok…the city has a bigger airport than anything in Cambodia, and Bangkok is an easy place to get to from Cambodia, right? Sitting in Siep Reap, and having become accustomed to […]

We headed to Hội An from Huế in a private car, with our new friends from Colorado, Tim and Julia. Having our own driver afforded us the opportunity to make some scenic stops along the way that aren’t possible with the train (which only goes as far as […]
I looked it up. There has not yet been a single written article to focus its attention on both Ho Chi Minh, (locally) beloved, controversial uniter of the nation of Vietnam, and the Super Bowl, intergalactic championship game of American Football. Until right now.
We decided to get up early for a change, and we made our way over to the Hoàn Kiếm Lake in downtown Hanoi. Besides being a nice walk, we had heard that it is the site of a great deal of early-morning Tai Chi, and we wanted to […]
Our time in Chiang Mai and in Thailand was drawing to a close. We were planning our move on to Vietnam, and we reviewed our list of desired Thailand “must do” activities. We decided to see a film.
Hello friends, and welcome to the highlands of Chiang Mai. We arrived here via our longest Thai rail journey yet, which we elected to experience in second class (air conditioned) comfort. We alternately watched the farms and the mountains of the Thai countryside roll by, and viewed the […]
