The Party Isn't Over. It's Just In A New Time Zone

If you've been following us on our social properties or listening to the podcast, you already know this. But for those who haven't yet heard the news...

We're headed back to America!

No, it wasn't for an international incident. We didn't become political refugees of Thailand. We weren't even asked to leave.

Our son, NJ, has decided to make us grandparents! Our first granddaughter is set to arrive sometime in late July, and neither of us want to be absentee grandparents. So I'm writing you this missive from a cafe in Beijing as we make our last-hurrah of Asian countries. Japan and Korea are up next.

But just because we're going to be headed back, it doesn't mean our life of travel is over. Far from it. Now that we know how dead simple it is to travel the world, we've no intentions of stopping. It's just that the new kid -- we'll call her Bali -- takes priority, and that naturally changes things for us.

Yes, we'll restart the podcast when we get back. And yes, you might even see a new blog post or two coming as well. Stay tuned!

You Can’t Opt Out Of Religion In SE Asia

You Can’t Opt Out Of Religion In SE Asia

Well someone woke up on the wrong side of the manger today, and just in time for Xmas. After living in SE Asia for the better part of two years, Evo’s kinda done with being surrounded by religion, and religion is an inescapable part of every culture in this part of the world. As he explains in the episode, his malaise started with a visit to Angkor Wat, festered living in Thailand, and came to a head as he slammed through three different religious cultures in Indonesia.

Chiang Mai Death March [Exclusive #8]

Checking off another box from the “obvious places to visit in Thailand” list!

Apart from the occasional mentions of Sheila’s teaching life here in Bangkok, this special bonus episode just for our supporters is all about our future travel trip to Chiang Mai. Which means “no Chiang”... whatever Chiang means. Oddly enough, we haven’t yet traveled to Chiang Mai in the 2+ years we’ve been in Thailand. Time to change that. And since this is the time of year when the grounds around the city are not on fire, it’s a great time to visit.

What’s calling us to a place that Evo’s is on record as calling “where travel bloggers go to die”? Listen in and find out what we’re excited about. And why Sheila might get Evo kicked out of the country.

Also, the weather is cooling off down here, which means Sheila’s down allergy is once again a concern. No, you wouldn’t think that would be an issue in Thailand. But you would be wrong.
