I’ve always wanted one of those “oh I’m so naturally cool” photos.

With all my friends going/moving to Denver (don’t leave me!!) I figured it’s high-time I shared my #Denver travel guide.

Welcome! Flood season in Hoi An was a site to see. We headed into this shop for some tailor-made clothes & when we left the street had turned into a river! The ladies in the shop said the week before the waters had come as high as the little light switch you can see on the wall! We eventually made our way out the back to a wine bar next door where we grabbed a seat in the open-air cafe, ordered a glass of French wine in this French colonial town, and watched the tides rise. Truly spectacular. #ABABtravel at Hoi An City Viet NamWelcome! Flood season in Hoi An was a site to see.

Whenever I go to a famous site, I (and the rest of my human cohorts) try to get the perfect picture of unspoiled beauty… lifting our cameras and ducking around to avoid the other dozen or hundreds of people trying to do the same thing. During my trip to Angkor Wat just two months ago (not even two months! how!? feels like decades ago…) I was actually pleasantly surprised by the (relatively) few people at the sunrise...

I took this photo when the sun was rising through the haze. I got up extra early every single day I was on the bay to make sure I wouldn’t miss a moment sailing through the limestone cliffs that dotted the sea. I even did Tai Chi on the”sun” deck, though we didn’t see any clear skies. But the solemn mood set by the clouds itself surprisingly brought perfect peacefulness, even though it may have been different from what I expected. I wrote a blog post recently on how sometimes (always) travel doesn’t quite meet your expectations. But the important thing to remember is to remove focus from what you where expecting, and instead realize the awesomeness in front of you. #HalongBay #Vietnam #ABABtravel at Halong Bay, VietnamI took this photo when the sun was rising through the haze.

I just got home from a 2.5 week vacation through Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand. And while I definitely want to share some amazing stories from my travels, I first want to share with you all some personal thoughts on vacation expectations vs. realities. My husband and I love to travel to cities and experience new cultures. We have never really had a “relaxing” vacation, as I am the type of person who is constantly on the move, searching for what else there is we can see and do. But in planning this vacation, we knew we wanted to end it with some time in the sun, lounging on the sand with a coconut cocktail and crystal blue water washing ashore. And what better place to make that happen than Thailand? But when we landed in Krabi, home of some of the most beautiful and sought after beaches on the planet, it was pouring...

For me, a two week vacation is a year-long experience. I am definitely not the type of person to book a trip a month in advance, it seems like such a waste! Half the fun is in the months and weeks leading up to a grand adventure, when you get to read interesting books by local authors, or watch documentaries on important cultural movements, or find online that hip, ex-pat blogger that knows all the greatest cafes (yes please!) I’ve struggled with this idea of planning vs. improvising on vacation for a long time. Many of my friends make fun of me… I once showed a friend my itinerary for my honeymoon and on the seventh page she started laughing out loud because I wrote 6pm-ish, and it was the first time I included an “ish” next to a time. She looked at me and said, "I’m glad you’re flexible.” READ MORE... link in bio.

3 years ago I was in #Mozambique for the trip of a lifetime. Vacations for me are so much more than sitting on a beach or a nice hotel room. Vacations for me are about meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. I'll forever be grateful to all those around the world who have taken the time to welcome me into their homes and show me around their towns and cities. If I were to give one travel tip, it would be to always talk to the locals and don't pass on opportunities because you're afraid of the unknown. Be vigilant always, but never let nervousness get in the way of experiencing the world as it is. This video was taken when I was vegetable shopping in the small town of Vanduzi. When I pulled out my camera the whole market got so excited! They started dancing and singing and posing for photos with their onions! The language barrier was broken and we were all just people having fun.
