3 nights in Puerto Princessa, Palawan – Philippines

After a few day on Cebu Ronda and I departed for Palawan where my brother, Ben, was waiting for us in Puerto Princessa. Truth be told this city is really just a hub and the best thing to do is head north for Sabang, Port Barton or El Nido but if you’ve got a few days Read More …

Onesie Bike Ride – Seoul Flash Mobs

Sunday afternoon brought a flash mob back to the Han River.  We gathered near the bike rental before donning our animal onesies and enjoying the afternoon sun.  Being on bicycles we were stopped less often for photos (than when we were hanging out in Dongdaemun or on the subway.)  We weren’t nearly as large a Read More …

Falling in love with Yoga – Thailand

Thailand is an epicenter for yoga.  Especially Acroyoga.  Technically its acrobatic-yoga but as a former gamer I like to think of acroyoga as multiplayer yoga.  Acro is where you get a couple people together for one pose.  You need a minimum of 1 base and 1 flyer (and should have a spotter or two).  I’ll Read More …

Thailand – a sneak peek

Koh Lanta is amazing, we stumbled upon a tiny beach village shortly after a whirlwind through Phuket, Koh Phi Phi, & Krabi.  From boat rides & tigers to yoga & sunsets this has been a series of breathtaking adventures. As I look back through my photos I am still in awe of this animated wonderland I’m watching unfold before Read More …

A southwest journey to find True North – Bryce Canyon, Day 3

14 miles down and only a few bruises and blisters so far.  Half of us are craving a shower more than this girl craves chocolate.  The rest are content to wait until our mid-trip hotel.  We arrived at Bryce Canyon just after lunch and quickly discovered that the only campsites left were for car camping.  Read More …
