Our first days in Myanmar

It was finally time to visit a country we’ve been curious about for such a long time. Myanmar! We took a 1-hour flight with a small airplane from Chiang Mai to Mandalay. The plane view was insane! Mandalay is a big and crowded city surrounded by impressive pagodas and temples. All locals in Myanmar wear longyis and this is the one time Nick had to wear one as well, isn’t he beautiful? 😛

It was so much fun to meet the first Burmese people. They are super friendly and people of all ages surprisingly wanted to take pictures with us haha.

We went on a tour all around the area in two days and although we’re not a big fan of visiting temples, this was a different experience. These pagodas en temples are so beautiful and authentic!

Myanmar, we love you already!

Christmas & New Year in Thailand

When we decided to quit our corporate jobs (3 months ago) we came up with a routine to travel between 3-5 weeks, then sit down for 4 weeks in a city and repeat this for a year. So we choose Chiang Mai as our first city to sit down. We’ve combined a lot of working like writing new travel blogs, editing videos, arrange new trips etc with some quality and chill time.

The first week was so much fun already! (except the fact Nick had to go to the hospital for a pretty bad toe infection🙈)
We had the best burgers in town on Christmas Night. We got an invitation to a New Years Eve dinner on an incredible farm where we met some lovely people.

New Year’s Eve was such a magical night as well. Thousands of lanterns were taken off. Of course, we made a wish too❤️

2018 is going to be the year of #TeamSalty!

Boats & Beaches in Krabi

After our beautiful and adventures trip in Khao Sok National Park, we continued our trip through southern Thailand to Krabi. We’ve visited Krabi two years ago and although it’s touristy, it doesn’t take away to great vibes in here.

We stayed in a resort in Ao Nang where we created content for their website and social media in order to stay for a couple of nights.

After a day of catching up with work, we took the famous red cab to Krabi Town. The pier offers a small night market where we’ve had some of the best street food. Since it was a Sunday night we also went to the Krabi weekend market, which is a nice place to walk around for a little while.

The next morning we took the first boat (8 AM) to Railey Beach to avoid the crowds and take some photos. (That’s the trick guys! No photoshopping here haha) We took pictures and spend the day on the beach.
