Biking Bangkok

Kat and I first encountered Bangkok traffic from the perspective of the backseat of a taxi. The chaos of any big city can be daunting. Though neither of us spoke the words, I know we were both thinking, “Not going to bike here.” But over years of travel, both of us have [...]

Taking the slow path in Thailand

I enjoy the luscious sense of freedom and speed of a long, well earned, downhill. But more often, the most memorable travel moments come when I am forced to slow down. … Read more at the Adventure Cycling Association’s blog.

A quick flight and we were back in Bangkok. Back to our familiar neighborhood near the National Stadium sky train station. This group of women construction workers were lined up at a street side stall for dinner. They have been busy building a new highrise hotel around the corner. -w
