I have an awful doodling habit. And now I'm imposing it on my son. Sorry, kid.

Cambodia
So, we were off to Cambodia. After a crazy border crossing at Prum where we nearly got all our money taken by a border guard, we managed to get a taxi to Siem Reap. What was Leaf listening to in route? The Dead Kennedys , of course. What better time for a ...

Koh Kut
When we landed on Koh Kut, guess who was waiting for us? Yep. It was Buddha. After a few hours on Koh Kut, we became totally blissed out. The island was too perfect. Coconuts fell out of the trees and rolled to our feet. Fish jumped out of the bay and lande...

Biking Day 5: MaeTaeng to Little Village
We stayed at a guesthouse up in the hills and it was cold when we woke up on our fifth and final day of biking. Monet insisted on stopping for espresso. She drank it at the counter, like a true Italian. As we came out of the hills, we biked past a pack of p...

Biking Day 3: San Kampaeng to Doi Saket
The next day started with a nice road and dirt trail around a lake. When we reached the lake, an important military-looking fellow approached us and insisted we take a picture with him. Sure, we said, as long as we can take a picture with you. "Hey, get out...

Biking Day 2: Lamphun to San Kampeng
Day two started with Leaf biking down the steps of our hotel. Luckily we had already checked out. Also notice the Christmas tree. . . rare flora for Thailand, only found in tourist hotels. Look, it's a giant golden Buddha, hiding up in those trees! Why doe...

Biking Day 1: Little Village to Lamphun
Before you bike in Thailand, go visit a one-eyed Dutch man named Hans who runs a brothel called the Little Village in Hang Dong (just kidding, it's not a brothel. Oh, and I'm pretty sure that Hans has two eyes and likes to squint). Anyway, Hans knows every ...

Bangkok
Here's a photo blog from our 2017 holiday. . . three weeks in Thailand. It's a story about some bizarre, exotic and funny-looking people. And it's also about Thailand. We biked around for five days, flew across country on cheap airlines, motor-biked on a re...

Biking Day 1: Little Village to Lamphun
It was time to stop being tourists and jump into the landscape. As scary as it appeared (and it was scary), we decided to brave the Thailand traffic, rent some bikes and head for the hills around Chiang Mai.
