Only In The Peg! What To Do in Winnipeg thumbnail

Hey friends! I’m jumping out of my typical chronologically-based coverage to skip ahead and share my recent trip to Canada. We’ll be back to Thailand soon! What do you know about Winnipeg? I admit, I haven’t done more exploring of my neighbor to the north. Having only briefly visited Montreal and Toronto in the past, my…

Happiness High above Haleakala thumbnail

It’s hauntingly beautiful, immensely geographically and culturally significant, and home to more adrenaline-boosting activity options than you could cram into a week.

Here, three of the tours we loved in Lima, and how they stack up against each other in Zoe and Alex’s Extremely Official Rating System. Lima Coast…

Chiang Rai by Bicycle thumbnail

I’m no stranger to bike tours in Southeast Asia — I’ve done self-guided jaunts through Siem Reap and Ayutthaya, and joined an organized trip around Bangkok. What can I say, I like to cycle! So when I came across Chiang Rai Bicycle Tour in my search for ways to get to the infamous Wat Rong Khun…
