Photo of the Day
What makes an Italian hill town so charming? It might be the narrow cobblestone streets that wind aimlessly, leading you to doors that you KNOW have stories behind them. It might be the mysterious quiet during the middle of the day, as everyone has retreated for a midday nap. It might be how easily … Continue reading
Thailand conjures up visions of bustling Bangkok, rural Chiang Mai, and the untouched beaches of Kho Phi Phi. We were lucky enough to experience each of these typical Thai vacation spots on our trip, and while all were fabulous, none were as forgettable as our off-the-beaten-path trek to Sukhothai.
