AThailand: Is is hard to get a work visa in Thailand?

It isn't easy to get a work visa in Thailand unless you are teaching. There are multiple entry tourist visas you can get which allow you to stay around nine months, but because the government is influx, the rules often change about these.  See More

AChiang Mai: Best area to stay in Chiang Mai for long-term stay?

Hi! I lived in Chiang Mai for almost three years and just left. In terms of what you are looking for would be somewhere by the South Gate (Chiang Mai Gate). Every night there is a large food market where you can get street food. From there, you can walk pretty much anywhere... See More

AChiang Mai: Best things to do in Chiang Mai in 3 days?

 You definitely need to see the elephants! There are a lot of places which will claim to be sanctuaries, but they still use instruments to control them, have them engage far too much with people and still use them to perform. I worked in elephant tourism ​ there for... See More

AChiang Mai: Remarkable things to do in Chiang Mai?

Chiang Mai is an incredible city with so much to do. I know, for many, seeing elephants is at the top of the list. Sadly, I worked in elephant tourism there for many years and the abuse I saw and the exploitation I saw broke my heart. Please be mindful when deciding on... See More

AAdvice or words of comfort on quitting your job to travel full time?

You only live once! I used to work in PR in Atlanta and went on a trip to Croatia for my 30th birthday that changed my life. While I was there, I realized I didn't like my job/career and wasn't happy with the path I was in. I took a seven month trip backing through... See More

AChiang Mai: Best area to stay in Chiang Mai for long-term stay?

I just left Chiang Mai after living there for almost three years. Nimman is a wonderful place to live -- there is a nice mix of Thai and Western people, although it is becoming increasingly touristy. You can definitely find a place to rent within your budget, although before... See More

ALas Vegas: Top things to do in Las Vegas that don't include gambling?

There are so many things you can do instead of gamble in Vegas! Head to a ghost town -- Bonnie Springs Ranch​ or Nelson​.  For kid-related activities, I suggest Circus Circus Hotel & Casino​'s AdventureDome... See More

ALas Vegas: Which hotel would you choose?

Between the three, I would choose Treasure Island/Mirage Employee Parking​ . It is far more centrally located than the others. While the rooms aren't going to be as up-to-par as SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino​, the location... See More

ALas Vegas: Free Stuff to do in Vegas?

There are plenty of free things to do in Vegas. For one, there are plenty of hotels which warrant a wander, like Bellagio's Conservatory, the Canals at Venetian, the flamingos at Flamingo and more.  Downtown, hit up First Friday, every first Friday of the month, which... See More

ALos Angeles: LA-San Diego-Las Vegas-San Francisco: road trip with kids, what to see?

From LA to Vegas, there isn't too much, but perhaps stop at State Line and take the kids on the roller coaster if it is still open. In Vegas, Desert Springs is a great place for the kids, and the Wet n'Wild water park. Also cool is the Neon Museum in Vegas, Circus-Circus'... See More
