Padre Burgos Pier

March 1, 2010

From the surface, the Padre Burgos pier doesn’t look like much: a cement roadway jutting out into the bay only a few feet above the water at high tide supported by cement pillars. But underneath, especially at night, there is an ecosystem that we had the pleasure of exploring. Entering the water at night was […]

Freediving

February 12, 2010

Freediving: the art of diving on a single breath. Sounds very simple and in principle it is, but good freediving requires strong discipline, physiology, and training. After a little research I began to understand what freediving really is and became fascinated. The beauty of the sport is the simplicity and naturalness. With just a mask […]

Bunk Beds

February 12, 2010

Do you ever find yourself talking to an inanimate object like wood? Let’s say something like a plywood platform that makes the base of the bunkbed above your head. This has been the case for a few recent guesthouses in which the only private room Becca and I can get is, well, a room with […]

A View from Above

January 31, 2010

Next time you go to a new city, especially in a far away place, don’t look for the self-guided walking tours, the malls, the Starbucks, nightmarkets, galleries, or museums. Look up. Find the highest point, and make an effort to get there, because that vantage point can tell you more about a city than you […]

Malaysia Book of World Records

January 31, 2010

Strolling through the bustling night market alleys of Malacca, I began to notice a congestion of people ahead with the crunchy noise of a PA system growing from the center. This piqued my interest and so I made my way to the ring of people to find in the center a Malaysian man dressed like a martial […]

George Town Eats

January 25, 2010

The city of George Town on the island of Penang, Malaysia was settled in 1786 by the British East India Company. George Town was declared a free port to compete with Dutch traders, and as such, attracted people from all over the world. The majority populations today are Chinese, Malay, and Indian. They all co-exist […]

Diving deeper. Diving Longer.

January 13, 2010

So the last week or so Becca and I have been figuring out this whole “diving” thing we love, and how far to take it. We looked into becoming Divemasters, but ultimately decided that was a bit much at this point, and found two specialty courses that would extend our scuba diving limits and open […]

New Years on Phi Phi

January 6, 2010

We met the year 2010 on a Phi Phi beach with a bucket of cheap Thai whiskey, a sky full of fireworks, and full moon. We had made a few dive buddies in the previous few days, making for a fun night of dancing, laughing, and general mayhem. Share

Christmas on Phi Phi

December 27, 2009

The little Thai island of Phi Phi became our Christmas destination as soon I found out two of my sisters were going to fly across the world to celebrate with Becca and I. We spent a week on a quiet beach, with plenty of sun activities to keep our days full. We did everything the […]

Bangkok

December 26, 2009

Bangkok likes it big. Everything from massively massive malls that could store stadiums inside, to art installations you walk into, under, and look up to. Santa Claus has also found this metropolis with everything blinking red and green. The whole service industry is wearing Santa hats, and Mariah Carey’s Christmas songs play absolutely everywhere. We […]
