Surin Beach Phuket: Experiencing Phuket’s Softer Side

    Last year, we traveled through Thailand experiencing its two major cities: Bangkok and Chiang Mai, and bouncing around among the islands of Koh Lipe, Koh Lanta and Koh Samui.

We often get asked questions about what to pack for trips around the world. With limited suitcase space and weight, it can be hard to determine between the essentials and the nonessentials.

A good pair of sunglasses is, in our opinion, the one thing you just can’t go without when traveling.... read more
