Florence & Venice – Italian Vacation Part II

I’ll start part II of our adventures in Italy by expressing my gratitude to my dad and brother for doing all the driving on the trip.  Our 9-passenger rental van fit the six of us and all of our luggage comfortably;  however, the van itself hardly fit comfortably in the Italian […]

Rome & Orvieto – Italian Vacation Part I

After eighteen days of getting spoiled by Stef’s extended family in Prague, we headed to Rome where we would be meeting up with my parents, brother, and sister-in-law.  After seven months apart, we could not wait to see my family, but we had ten days in Rome on our own […]

Remote Work – Landing Jobs on the Road

Since the beginning of our journey, we have kept a watchful eye on digital, income-earning opportunities.  We accepted the risk of going an entire year without income but always intended on finding jobs on the road.  Finding remote work would not only support our travel but our long-term goal of […]

Golden Triangle – India's Tourists Hotspots

With so much to see in India, we had no time to slow down. We chose to spend our last week and a half ticking off the stops in India’s Golden Triangle. The cities of New Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur form the triangle, which attracts most of India’s tourists. Despite […]

Chiang Mai – Northern Thai Culture

We did a lot of research to chase our dream, travel the world, and seek location independence.  Anyone looking at becoming a digital nomad will inevitably hear of Chiang Mai, Thailand. Multiple coworking spaces have popped up there in recent years, making it an ideal place to live and work […]

Bangkok – Livin' the Thai City Life

Now that Southern Thailand had provided me with a tan that could finally rival Stef’s, it was time to head north and checkout the city life in Thailand.  We jetted out of Krabi to spend one week in Bangkok in a studio apartment. I probably had more preconceived ideas about Bangkok than anywhere […]

Cost Comparison – Southeast Asia

Affordability draws many travelers to Southeast Asia and it is why we chose to start our trip here.  Relative to US prices, almost all goods and services cost much less than in North America.  However, that does not mean that we have been paying consistent prices throughout Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, and […]

Angkor Wat – Worth Every Penny

It’s no secret at this point that we are dedicated to stretching every dollar as best that we can.  Before leaving our jobs and packing our bags, we knew proper budgeting and geoarbitrage were the key to making this trip a reality.  We consistently eat (and love) street food, we keep […]

Phnom Penh – Beautiful City, Ugly History

After maxing out our Vietnam visa, we headed to new territory.  We caught the early bus from Ho Chi Minh City to Cambodia where we will spend our next 25 days.  Our first stop was Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital and largest city.  Before visiting, we knew very little about this […]

Hanoi – Hitting the Tourist Hotspots

Hanoi welcomed us with a small step toward Christmas temperatures, in the mid sixties, and I finally didn’t regret lugging around the warmer gear in my bag.  I definitely enjoyed navigating the city without being constantly drenched in sweat, but I recommend bringing layers.  We stayed warm while walking, but […]
