must read

I want to share some of my favorite blog posts from some of my online daily reads. As I get into this blog world a little more I find people who make me envious and also inspire. Reading about other travelers and their stories reminds me why I love my life and makes me feel like I have friends all over the world!


Never Ending Voyage did a spot on post about random observation s from their time living in Thailand. They noticed everything from the the way Thai people (and now I) eat food with a spoon and the fork used mostly as a shovel to the fact that the Thai National Anthem is played every morning at 8:00 am and 6:00 pm. This blog is funny, informative and the writers are obviously well traveled. 

The fearful adventurer is living the dream. Seriously, when I dreamt of moving to Thailand it was the way she is doing it. Torre recently moved into a bungalow on Koh Tao and is redecorating the place after a shopping spree at the world famous Chatuchak market in Bangkok. I am so envious of her right now it is motivating me to jump out of this rat race and settle down in place with a view.... one of my favorite bloggers, she is witty and I love following her on her fearless adventures!

Fearful Adventurer living the dream!


The Wanderlust project is a blog by a teacher in South Korea, a place that will always have a special place in my heart. Recently Sheryll went on a boat trip down the Han River and her photos really made me miss that big, stinky, beautiful city! I love reading about her explorations in Seoul and funny stories working with her middle school students, and you will too!

Anywhere but home is photo travel blog written by my good friend from Korea, Naomi. She is very talented photographer and last month she went to a traditional Korean wedding and the pictures are amazing! She captured some great moments with the happy couple, Korean and western friends and family and it looked like a very interesting cultural experience! Always enjoy looking at life through her point of view.

The rest of the world

Battered Suitcases is a inspiring and resourceful blog with her nomadic life and awesome features on novelty snacks around the world (we share a passion for snacks!) She recently taught in the Middle East and she gives a interesting perspective as a woman living there. She also has traveled extensively through SE Asia and I love getting tips about Thailand from her posts!

Ice cream cone life is written by Em, another blogger living the sweet life currently in Saudi Arabia according to her blog. She travels all over Europe and takes fantastic photos in interesting perspectives. She recently traveled to Greece and her photos are angelic! I will also be guest posting on her blog in July while she is out traveling. Love her blog and outlook on life!

Ice cream cone life enjoys the sweet life!
