The Great Escape: Month 57 Roundup thumbnail

Oh, my monthly roundups. They are so ridiculously out of sync with real time now that I recently considered axing the series, but I decided to play catch up instead — so brace yourself for a couple of these coming up!

A Year in Paradise: Koh Tao’s Annual Events and Festivals thumbnail

You may have picked up by now that I love any excuse to celebrate, don a costume or pop a bottle of (probably fake, if we're talking Thailand) champagne -- festivals and holidays are my jam! Lucky for me, Koh Tao knows how to party -- it's one of the things I love about this island…

The Complete Guide to Visiting Koh Yai National Park Independently thumbnail

Thailand is abundant with so many natural wonders I’d be hard pressed to pick a favorite, but this year I stumbled upon one that definitely lingers somewhere near the top. I traveled to Khao Yai National Park, as so many others do, in search of elephants. One of the largest wild populations in Thailand calls Khao…
