map of St Pierre and Miquelon

In a time where you can be anywhere in the world in 24 hours or less, there aren’t many places people haven’t at least heard mentioned. Well yea, sure, there are plenty, but what about places right smack in the middle of Europe or North America? Not so much. Here are 4 places in the world … keep reading


Cicada Market in Hua Hin, Thailand

I’ve spent a lot of time in Thailand recently and it’s starting to feel like my hub. It’s just so easy to live here, get around (once you know how to that is), eat, have fun, relax, turn up, whatever! Thailand has it all. One of my favorite aspects about Thailand is its market culture. … keep reading


Harley rental in Singapore from Big Loud Rides

This past week I had the pleasure of going on a pretty epic day-long motorcycle ride in Singapore.

Well, now I’m older, and after traveling for a few months in the Philippines, … keep reading


exterior of Naumi Liora hotel Singapore

I had the pleasure of spending one night at the Naumi Liora Hotel this past week in the historic China Town neighborhood of Singapore. In a city that’s more famous for its gleaming skyscrapers and contemporary architecture, the Naumi Liora respects where it came from, but doesn’t miss out on what Singapore has become – … keep reading


Petronas Towers at night from Fuego in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I just spent a full week in Kuala Lumpur (KL to locals), the capital of Malaysia and a true megapolis, home to over 7,000,000 people. Anytime I hear “capital city” in Southeast Asia, I automatically imagine hell. Concrete edifices hastily thrown up, brutal traffic, non-stop noise and sweltering heat. But, I’m very happy to say … keep reading
