“Bangkok, Thailand is a massive beautiful city that is always busy and filled with tons of people and shopping centers.” - Traveler Austin Romito

From eating the Thai-riffic street food that many say is the best food they’d ever pad,

to enjoying a brake when he was wheelie tired from exploring all day,

it’s safe to say that Austin had a great time in the boun-Thai-ful city of Bangkok.

“One of my favorite spots was Sticky Waterfalls outside of Chiang Mai, it was a warm waterfall that washes over sticky rocks. The rocks allow you to climb up the waterfall! We had a local guide Tuk, who took us to a lot of locally favorite spots around Chiang Mai.”

From being boulder than the rest and harnessing his inner climber,  

to exploring the gray area between close and too close (woah Nellie! Better hold on to your trunks! 😊),

to going on an action peaked trip to the top of a mountain to see the Doi Suthep temple,

Austin really embraced his adventurous side exploring Chiang Mai.

 

Here’s to finding your adventurous side (while also keeping your safe-Thai in mind) & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

Traveler Martini works for a nonprofit focused on human and environmental health in Indonesian Borneo. She also grew up in Indonesia, so whenever she returns for a work trip, she makes sure to visit her family and relive her childhood.

Her favorite part of traveling is “meeting people and getting a glimpse into their everyday lives (which is usually so similar and yet so different to mine)” - Martini Morris

“In the region of Hoi An, the local minority group is named "Cham". Currently, the Cham population is only 130,000. A spectacular Cham temple complex named My Son still exists today, very near Hoi An City. We were very lucky to see an amazing dance performance by Cham people at the My Son temples the day we visited.

Siem Reap, Cambodia is one of my most favorite destinations. The history (both ancient and modern) of the country is absolutely fascinating. I am a veteran of the awe inspiring and massive Angkor Wat temple complexes...many times over, because it never gets boring.
