Eye of the Thai-ger

“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!

A Rwanda'ring Hero

Kigali is a beautiful hilly city, quite green and very clean. People are super nice and eager to tell you about their history, including the genocide. Rwanda does not allow plastic bags, so, unlike other African countries, there is no plastic flying around or laying on the streets.
