Bangkok Floating Market Tour | THAILAND

Boat Noodles, long tail boats, and street market food that would blow the top of most Thai restaurants in America. This is everything Netflix has showcased about the infamous floating markets outside of Bangkok. And though each floating market is different, the tour we booked through AirBnB Experience with our guide Vicky lived up to all our expectations. We ate so much traditional Thai food that I would never have tried in a million years, experience the ride of a lifetime in a long tail boat, and even had a family style lunch at a unique floating restaurant. All of …

After living in Park City for the past 5 years, I’ve compiled all of the top things to accomplish and do when living (or visiting) Park City, Utah. Mind you, this list is not something anyone can do in a week, a summer, or just a winter. This will take a long time to accomplish, but every item on this list will be an unforgettable experience nonetheless. I’ve broken it down into two categories adventure & outdoors and food & Cultural Experiences. Hope you agree and enjoy! Let me know if you’d like to see anything else added to this …

Review | The Village Coconut Island Resort in Phuket, Thailand

Just a short, five minute boat ride from the mainland, puts you at the edge of the dock of The Village Coconut Island. And once you hop off the boat, onto the pier, you treated to a view of the beautiful resort that lines the white sand beaches on the north side of Coconut Island. To the right are massive beachfront villas overlooking the sea, and to the left of the pier, are the beach lounge chairs, pool, and the resort restaurant right there on the beach. Some would say this is paradise! Unfortunately, over the next three days, we …

Trip to Kamala Beach, Phuket, Thailand

After spending a few days on a SCUBA diving boat out near the Similan Islands, we chose to spend the next few days relaxing at the beachside town of Kamala Beach. Though we had only been to a few other towns in Thailand up until this point of the trip, Kamala Beach was beautiful, and completely different than anything we had expected. And over the next few days, we fell in love with this small beach town and how memorable it was. Kamala Beach, located on the western coast of the Phuket island, is just one town north of the …

Touring the Iconic Phi Phi Islands of Thailand

Rarely, in my experience of traveling both abroad and throughout America, do the touristy, adventure tourism locations live up to the hype. Destinations in the US National Parks like Arches, Yosemite, and Grand Canyon are undeniably beautiful, but perpetually overcrowded, which tend to take away from the personal experience. The Phi Phi Islands, though similar in popularity, are some of the most beautiful, and unforgettable scenery that I’ve ever seen. Phi Phi Islands far exceeded my original thoughts of this place that I had previously only seen popularly on Instagram. The Phi Phi Islands are actually an island chain, made …

Exploring Town of Kihei on the Island of Maui, Hawaii

Kihei, on the island of Maui, Hawaii, was significantly less touristy than Lahaina. And that is a good thing! It really seemed like this was the place people actually “lived” on the island if they were outside the big city Kahului. Of course there was a main town center, but this town really seemed to have the beach as the main focus for being here. The town stretched for miles along the coast facing due west, which led to some incredible sunsets each night. We went scuba diving right off the beach, even went surfing. Our time in Kihei was …

Exploring The Florida Keys on Vacation and Why This Should Be Your Next Beach Destination

When the destination of Florida was tossed around for our family trip this year, admittedly, I had some serious hesitations. Normally, we try to go to some place that’s more of a “destination” or out of the country. But with the pandemic making international travel a bit more hectic and chaotic than what we were willing to risk, we decided on making the trip to the Florida Keys. As it turns out, the Florida Keys are so far from what I could have ever imagined being attached to our Sunshine State. The Florida Keys contain over 800 islands, but are …

Exploring Lahaina on the Island of Maui, Hawaii

Coming from a guy who lives in a tourist town, I know one when I see one. And Lahaina is definitely a tourist town. But I will say, tourist towns aren’t all bad, despite the connotations that they get for high priced restaurants and cliche T-shirt shops. After spending over a week on the island of Maui, we wished we could’ve spent more time in Lahaina. So much so, on our last day of the trip, we drove from Kahului all the way over to Lahaina, just to go snorkeling one last time before we got onto our red-eye flight. …

Maui, Hawaii Trip | Diving, Snorkeling, and Hiking

Maui, Hawaii, what an incredible island! My wife, her parents, and I spent 10 days driving around the second largest of the Hawaiian Island chain. We spent as much time in the water as possible, while also getting our fill of fresh fish and beer when on land. Over the 10 days, we moved around quite a bit, staying in Lahaina, Kapalua, Kihei, Hana, and Kahului, each for a couple nights. This allowed us to see and explore different parts of the island without having to drive many hours each day. This was our adventure! Zachary KenneyHi there, my name …

Colorado Road Trip

This trip was something Courtney and I have been dreaming about since moving out to the West. Yet, it’s been something we’ve been putting off for years because it was almost too feasible. Unlike a vacation that requires plane tickets and months of planning, this trip was comparatively easy. Our plan was to drive around to a bunch of mountain and ski towns of Colorado during the summer months, camping just outside of each town. That way, there was no reservations, not deadlines, just get in the truck and go. For this reason, we’ve just put it off year after …
