What a week! Last time I checked in, our big ‘ol group of friends from Koh Tao had just soaked up the spoils of the Khao Yai wine region. This week, the party continued with a three-day birthday celebration in Bangkok with the whole crew and next, a quiet retreat down to seaside Hua Hin with Ian. Bangkok is, of course, a regular repeat destination for me, but Hua Hin was a brand new (and long awaited!) one.

While I’d scheduled three posts prior to this departure and hoped to complete five more from the road, I’ve struggled to finish just three while traveling. Even this one is going up a day or two late, due to delayed transit, crippling motion sickness, and general poor planning. But for once I’ve tried not to beat myself up about it — I’ll share all my travels with you eventually, regardless of which particular days they are published!

With just one more destination to go on this particular adventure — my biggest since touching down in Thailand in September — I’m going to soak up every moment. Now that I’m living a much more settled life, my time traveling feels more precious and appreciated than ever. Stay tuned for next week’s snaps of Khao Sok National Park — and in the meantime, I’ll be posting more about my American Southwest road trip! As usual, see you in the comments…

Introducing Alex in Wanderland’s featured bloggers for March!

As a Melbourne-based blogger with a passion for marketing, Genevieve manages to balance a full time job with a life of travel. Her blog The Wanderbug chronicles her travels in Australia and beyond — far beyond! She also produces useful city guides, travel itineraries, and hand painted watercolors for fellow wanderers.

Why I Love This Blog: Genevieve’s Instagram is one of my favorite travel accounts to follow — join me for a daily parade of color and adventure!

Korean American blogger Nie Nie of Adventures with Nie Nie hails from California and has many passport stamps due to her military family upbringing. She names the diverse countries of Philippines, Korea and Italy as her travel faves, and reflects those varied destinations in her colorful posts.

Why I Love This Blog: A fellow art school grad, Nie Nie creates fun click-inducing graphics for each of her posts.

California Bay Area blogger Julie is traveling the world through taste, and documenting every bite on her blog Small World This Is. Small World This Is. With posts from delicious destinations like Turkey, Poland, Spain, and the USA, with a focus on San Francisco, she covers many countries and cuisines.

Why I Love This Blog: She blogs about donuts. Need I say more? Warning: don’t read while hungry!

Rachel Elizabeth is an English-teaching, flying-phobic travel addict who was transformed by travel. Her blog Blond Wayfarer follows her travels in Europe, North America and beyond.

Why I Love This Blog: Any blog with a specific literary travel section is a winner for me! As a once-voracious reader who has been distracted by other hobbies, Rachel Elizabeth makes me want to crack open books again.

Adorable couple Reid and Maryrose will have you searching for the next flight to their Hawaiian island home, Oahu. From detailed hike descriptions (they covered several of my favorites, and gave me an idea for my next trip) to local restaurant reviews, don’t even think of heading to the Aloha State without stopping by Wanderlustyle first.

Why I Love This Blog: Click over and check out their blog header — the most eye-catching I’ve seen in a while, and reason enough to stay and click around.

Florida based blogger Allie shares two of my biggest obsessions — travel and yoga! Journey Junkie delves into the details of specific poses, products and practice theories in a way that will appeal to both beginner and advanced yogis, with plenty of wanderlust-inspiring posts to boot.

Why I Love This Blog: I love that Allie gracefully juggles a day job in marketing with teaching yoga, running a blog, and indulging in regular travel — a great inspiration to those seeking not to be limited by office hours.

  • Photo C – not just because it’s a beautiful picture but because Hua Lamphong was a huge part of my morning commute and I sure do miss those motocy guys that sit outside!

      Really! I do love taking the train when possible but didn’t know anyone used that station for regular commuting — of course it makes sense when I think about it.

      Thanks Justine! So happy that my point and shoot was in an accessible pocket of my bag while I was running to catch a train of my own…

  • Ijana

    I agree with everyone who says C! You post quite a bit compared to most popular travel bloggers, so don’t worry if you go a few days without a post 🙂 We all love you anyway.

    • Alex
      March 3 2016

      Aw, you are too sweet! At this point I just want to catch up a bit closer to “real time” but perhaps I have to accept that’s never quite going to happen 🙂

      Thanks Anand. It was a great stay in BKK!

  • Sarah

    Has to be photo A, that’s flippin’ spectacular!
    Also, Hualamphong train station, was it that empty or have the crowds been removed?

    • Alex
      March 3 2016

      No photoshop! I just got lucky. Plus, Hualamphong has something like 12 tracks so the others might have been bustling at this perfect moment when the main one was taken up by just one figure.

  • John Baackes

    I like both A and C because they both have an architectural theme. A certainly captures the vibrancy of Bangkok and your position slightly above the lighted arch and deck area is visually very exciting. I like C because it perfectly captures the space of the train shed and I especially like your b and w architecture photos anyway. Love Dad
