Chiang Mai

December 8, 2015 – January 5, 2016 (Height of “cool” season) Contemplating our first stop as digital nomads, we had no idea where to begin. But after peeking around other travel blogs and online resources, one name quickly rose to the top of the pile: Chiang Mai. This mid-sized city in Northern Thailand...

Penang

January 5 – February 2, 2016 (Height of dry season) The island of Penang sits in the Strait of Malacca west of Peninsular Malaysia, surrounded on all sides by water (as islands so often are). Only 600 km from the Equator, the climate is best classified as “sauna.” Because of...

While it hasn’t reached Cancún-levels of development, it is growing in that direction. Several all-inclusive resorts...

Torres del Paine

Day 1: Mirador Las Torres It took nearly our entire stay, but we finally escaped Punta Arenas for the breathtaking wilderness of Torres del Paine National Park. We found a small Airbnb in Puerto Natales to serve as our home base for three nights, busing into the park each morning and back each afternoon....
