Photo of the Week 225: Phuket

Inertia. An object in motion tends to stay in motion, and a blogger not blogging tends to stay not blogging. That’s how I’ve felt this week… this month? September was one of my lightest posting months ever (tied with December 2014,...

The Great Escape: Months 41 and 42 Roundup

Note: Yup, I’m a little behind posting roundups. After the next one, however, we should be all caught up. Sorry for any confusion my lazy posting has caused! From Halloween to my birthday to Thanksgiving to Christmas, this was a period of big c...

The Great Escape: Month 41 Roundup

Note: This roundup might be a tad late. Expect another coming up next week! (Why do I keep forgetting to publish these things when I write in my “roundup notes” file on an almost daily basis?) Home sweet home away from home. Traveling aro...

Turning Twenty Five with a Bang

So last week I confessed that yes — at twenty-five, I’m still totally obsessed with my birthday. In my defense, I’m equally obsessed with the birthdays of those around me on a scrapbook-making, banner-hanging, cake-baking, Leslie Kn...

Koh Tao Hotel Spotlight: Aminjirah Resort

One of the most frequent requests to land in my inbox is for recommendation on where to stay in Koh Tao. (Which, by the way, along with most questions I get asked, is answered on my FAQ page! Did you know I have an FAQ page? If not, check it out!) Un...

Vacation in Paradise: A Getaway to Sai Nuan Beach

Sai Nuan has long been my favorite beach on Koh Tao. Tucked into the southwest corner of the island and more or less unreachable by road — I’d certainly never drive that treacherous dirt path some might call a road — you have to eit...

A Frighteningly Good Time: Halloween on Koh Tao

Koh Samui, Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pai, Chiang Mai, and Bangkok again — I’d been all over Thailand in just a few weeks. It was time to go home. This pier always makes my heart swell. Photos by Heather Holt. Returning back to Koh Tao post-Yi...

Koh Tao Dive Site Spotlight: Japanese Gardens and White Rock

Confession: I’m kind of a scuba snob. What can I say? With hundreds of dives under my belt, I’m just not really interested in suiting up unless the visibility is perfect, the sun is shining just so, and the boat is headed to the area̵...

Where to Work Out on Koh Tao

There are so many ways to indulge on Koh Tao — delicious restaurants and a party scene that tempts me out more nights than not. Yet lately when I’m there I feel physically better than ever, thanks to an endless array of ways to stay fit a...

What $600 in Rent Buys You on Koh Tao

A perpetual nomad allergic to leases but obsessed with real estate — it’s not an oxymoron; it’s me. Growing up my parents made a hobby out of attending open houses when we had no intention to move, and these days, from the moment I...

Hiking on Koh Tao

Koh Tao has a reputation for being a dive and party island. And while both those things are true — and Koh Tao does them proud — there is so much more to this little baby island than that. We’ve got plenty to landlubbers busy during...

Koh Tao Dive Site Spotlight: Sail Rock

I had high ambitions of getting my dive on on a regular basis throughout my three months back in Thailand. Unfortunately, bad conditions and a very low low season resulted in less boats going out, and lots of distractions meant I wasn’t always...

The Anatomy of a Burnout: Welcome Back to Thailand

I had big plans for my three months in Thailand. Writing a Koh Tao guide. Overhauling my archives. Pitching freelance outlets I’ve been itching to write for. Tackling items on my to do list that have been stagnating there for, oh, I don’t...
