Discovering the Value of Slow Travel – Why We Chose to Stay in Chiang Mai

When I made my first packing list for our RTW sabbatical, I included maps and guidebooks but I never thought of bringing along a paper calendar. At home, we have one in just about every room of our house, but for some reason, I thought time would be less relevant on the road. The truth is, it can be hard to keep track of months, let alone days when traveling long-term. That’s why I now keep a paper calendar in my bag everywhere I go. And according to that calendar, we are just about to start a n...

How Cancelling Grab Car Booking During the Ride Could Risk Your Life

We usually take the Grab Car to go to the airport or while traveling in ASEAN countries such as Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Laos. In one of our rides from the airport back to our home last year, the Grab driver requested me to cancel my Grab Car booking so he doesn’t need to pay the commission back to Grab. The young man kept on asking for me to cancel the Grab booking so he can make the extra bucks. For many people, it could be why not since it doesn’t really ‘harm us’ anyways. Howeve...

I wrote a story in my next book about all the places that I’m supposed to go to, or want to go to, or should go to. For a long time, Vietnam was near the very top of that list. We have friends that live in Vietnam, settling there after a few years of living in Japan, Laos, and Thailand. An assortment of commitments had prevented us from visiting them in Vietnam (and previously, in Laos and Thailand, two other places on my list), but when we saw them last summer in France, we sat down together i...

The Dark Side of Travel: What You Should Know About Drug Tourism

“In the U.S. you have to be a deviant or die of boredom.” William S. Burroughs said that. He’s among the most famous American drug tourists. A trendsetter. He would routinely go to Tangier, a city in Morroco known for the availability of drugs, and get high and write. Now drug tourism is a thriving industry in its own right. Loads of young Westerners and addicts with varying circumstances are traveling all over the world to places where drug laws are lax, more drugs are available, or different d...

Why you need to visit French Guiana

During the 2014 World Cup , French Guiana got the geographical equivalent of 15 minutes of fame. A place a good portion of the world didn’t know existed, much less could find on a map, was highlighted in numerous maps of World Cup stadiums around Brazil, as well as the subject of a number of “interesting places to travel around the World Cup” stories in the months leading up to the event. And that was the last most of the world thought about it. It’s not the world’s fault, really. Getting to t...

Motorbike routes in Southeast Asia

Southeast Asia has some of the world’s most stunning scenery — massive mountain ranges, dense cloud forests, tea plantations, and tiered rice terraces — and the best way to explore it is to rent a motorbike and hit the road. But before you hop on a bike in an area of the world where the roads are busted, the traffic out of control, and the driving rules hardly respected, take a motorbike driving lesson, get an international driving permit, and a health insurance plan that will protect you in...
