Hike Your Heart Out Koh Tao: The Burmese Pagoda thumbnail

Welcome to my newest Koh Tao series! Hiking is one of my favorite things to do on Koh Tao, and I try to hit a trail at least once a week when I'm on the island. While in many ways Koh Tao is a hiker's paradise, it's also a secret one -- there's no trail map…

Reflections on Seven Months of Stillness thumbnail

Physically, the key I dangled from my finger was little more than an intricately cut, nearly weightless piece of brass. But as I looked down at this particular sliver of metal for the last time, it felt like much more. Giving a spare one to a neighbor is a sign of trust. Presenting a fresh one…

Koh Samui

Happy Easter, if you're one of those who spent the day eating chocolate shaped like bunnies or dying eggs funky colors! I've always loved Easter weekend as a time to connect with family and friends over a good meal, do all the crafting, and celebrate the arrival of Spring. While Thailand isn't a traditionally Easter-celebrating country…

Burma Visa Run From Koh Tao

I've had a busy week since we last checked in. I prepped tons of content for the upcoming weeks, trained for an upcoming 5K run, answered a bazillion emails, had a blast for St. Patrick's Day, oh... and went to Burma. Unfortunately, no, it wasn't for the two-week girl's trip I was so excitedly planning this…

Koh Tao

It’s a big, bittersweet day around here at Wanderland HQ. One month from today, I’ll be flying out of Thailand and towards Brazil. As excited as I am for my next adventure, I’m already – as usual – heartsick at the idea of leaving Koh Tao. How will I miss thee? Let me count the ways…

Greetings from Koh Tao! I'm settled back on the island after my longest trip since September, a nearly two-week jaunt that brought me from Khao Yai to Bangkok to Hua Hin and finally down to Khao Sok. It was an amazing trip but it felt damn good to be home. I still feel like I'm playing…

Khao Sok

Greetings from the jungle! Okay so technically I'm back on my island jungle right now, but the highlight of the last week was my three day journey into Khao Sok National Park jungle with Elephant Hills. Following an overnight train from Hua Hin to Surat Thani, I spent time at both their Elephant Camp in the…

Bangkok

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…
