A Weekend Near DMK Airport, Bangkok

Our house sit in Hua Hin, Thailand has ended and it is time for us to move on to our next location. Our next sit is two weeks away and in an entirely different hemisphere. Here is a rundown of our adventure near the Don Muang International Airport in Bangkok. Hua Hin to DMK Airport... Continue Reading →

Birds and Critters of Thailand

There was a lot to see in Thailand. The food, people, culture, birds, and critters were drawing our eyes in every direction. It was an overload of the senses in the best possible way. We discovered so many new things that the thought of doing just a birding blog for Thailand seemed to cheat the... Continue Reading →

Harrier House Hash – Hua Hin, Thailand

One evening, while out getting acquainted with the local expat scene in our little Hua Hin neighborhood, we met up with a particularly outgoing group of folks. Over beers, our new friends insisted that we join them for a run they participate in every week. They called it "The Hash" and seemed very surprised that we... Continue Reading →

Eating Our Way Through Thailand

It is time, once again, for The Places We Live to share our adventures with food in Thailand.

I double-dog dare you. We are Josh and Jen no longer; let me introduce you to Scrappy and The Wild Card. We're traveling the world, breaking the rules, and living life on the cliff's edge. Yesterday, our mothers' upstanding little citizens got caught up with the seedy underbelly of local law enforcement and got a ticket in Thailand.

Hua Hin Beach

Our current house sit in Hua Hin is a bit out of town. With no public transportation and limited taxi availability, we've been relying on our host's motorbike to get us around. It's given us a great opportunity to explore a bit, while still living in a quiet and secluded area. Plus, there is something... Continue Reading →

Songkran – Thai New Year in Hua Hin

We started our international journey with a flight out of Boise on New Year's Eve. Since then, we have celebrated Chinese New Year in Chengdu, Persian New Year in Malaysia, and now Songkran, Thailand's New Year, in Hua Hin. I hate to play favorites, but Songkran in Hua Hin has been the best by far!... Continue Reading →
