Byron Bay and the Gold Coast

We took a short flight from Sydney to the Gold Coast Airport and rented a car since we were three people, and it made the most sense from a flexibility and cost stand point. Luckily I was the driver, and this was the first experience […]

Sydney on the Rocks

Looking for a little dose of the Sydney nightlife we decided to check out the Monday night Crab Races at Scubar, which is a backpacker bar not too far from our hostel. I was able to check it out, but Stonge forgot his passport and […]


Once we made it to Sydney, there was only one thing on our minds. Drop our bags off and head down to Bondi Beach. The beach is roughly 30 minutes via public transportation from the center of the city. The beach was packed, as most everyone […]

Melbourne – Australia Day

So after a quick solo stint in Bali and Singapore I made my way down to Australia to meet up with Stonge. Australia is easily the country I was most looking forward to. I’ve heard nothing but good things from my friends who have traveled […]

Cheap Eats in Singapore

The next, and final stop on the SE Asia circuit was the Country/State of Singapore. I’ve heard mixed reviews about the country as a whole, but one thing that kept floating to the top, the food. I had 2-3 days to experience Singapore, and that’s […]

Getting out of Kuta

As i previously mentioned in the first half about Bali, I needed out, sooner rather than later. The following morning after my Bali Belly disaster I ended up splitting a cab with a couple people I met at the hostel and we took a 90 […]

Business Class RTW Ticket

My $350 Business Class RTW Ticket

I’ve had a number of people ask me about some of the more nitty-gritty details of my trip, most specifically, how did i manage to snag a business class RTW ticket? Well it’s easy. Credit card points, lots and lots of credit card points! Those […]

Surfs Up in Bali

With roughly 10 days to play around with, Erik and I decided to part ways and I made my way down to Bali. All in all it cost me $160 to get from Bangkok, to Bali and then Bali on to Singapore where I was […]

Bangkok Dangerous

In honor of the late Nicholas Cage I have titled this post by what might claim his greatest movie in a vast resume of cinematic gold. Erik and I took a 2 hour ferry from Ko Tao to Chumporn, and from there a 7 hour […]

7-11 Ham and Cheese Toasties

Like Tokyo, Thailand has an abundance of convenience stores, specifically, 7-11’s. This is a solid place to grab a couple of large Chang beers to get the night started, or even keep the night going. While the cheap beer was nice, the main draw for […]

Thailand Beaches Continued

To continue our tour of the beaches of Southern Thailand we made our way from Koh Phi Phi to Phuket, specifically, Patong Beach. I had been there once before with the PK crew, and spent 3 nights there. I swore to myself I’d never go […]

The Beaches of Southern Thailand

After a night in Vientiane, Laos we spent a couple of low key nights in Ko Lanta before the calvary came. We stayed at a nice beachfront resort in the town of Long Beach and didn’t do much but soak up the sun. It’s really […]


We spent roughly a week in Laos, I was truly torn as to whether or not I wanted to go. I was itching to get some beach time in, but the weather forecast for the west coast of Thailand wasn’t great. Meanwhile, the forecast for […]
