Bangkok Daytrip to Ayutthaya

Destinations Around Asia

Steve has spent years traveling in Japan with his job, which is a little different than traveling for fun, but still pretty awesome.  This year, our goal was to spend six months traveling throughout SE Asia.  However, Covid-19 had other ideas so we came home early, although we still enjoyed a month in Thailand and a couple weeks in Hanoi, Vietnam.  We have great plans to go back, once the world settles down, but in the meantime, take a look at our Asia adventures! 



Asia Travel History

We spent most of our Thailand time in Bangkok for sight-seeing and food!  Then on Ko Tao, where we snorkled and relaxed! Around Japan, we’ve explored Tokyo, Mito, Nakaminato, and more.
