My Travelversary: Six Years of Travel thumbnail

I love anniversaries. This post marks six years since I traded my beautiful life in Brooklyn for an endless road of boarding passes, baggage claims, and big blogging dreams. I still pinch myself over how it’s all turned out. What an amazing reminder to pause and soak up the fact that looking beyond the day-to-day drama I try to laugh at…

Experiencing Penang’s Magical Street Art thumbnail

So, while I’m still catching up on my ridiculously delayed 2016 travel recaps, I just can’t wait to start sharing my big trip (thus far) of 2017. So I’ll be jumping back and forth a bit again. Apologies for any confusion, my friends! Our time in Penang was flying by. Granted, we’d lost a day and…

Goodbye Malaysia: A Heart Stopping Journey thumbnail

Our journey from the Perhentians back to Bangkok (and for me, back to New York) was fraught with drama and hilarity, perhaps starting with the fact that Mark had lost the only pair of flip flops that he brought on the trip and therefore spent the 700 mile trip either barefoot or wearing a pair of…

Thoughts On A Very Small Island thumbnail

It may not be the smallest island in the world, but Perhentian Kecil is certainly the smallest island I have ever traveled to. I can’t find the square mileage anywhere, perhaps it has never been measured. But it was dwarfed by our beloved island of Koh Tao, a mere 13 square miles in size. Not only…
