It is Sunday morning, we get ready as fast as we can at 5:45 am to catch the bus that goes from KL Sentral to Kuala Lumpur International airport, as we enjoy the hour-long ride we are sad to leave Kuala Lumpur behind, but very exited of entering Thailand for the first time in our lives. We arrive early at the airport and find the departure desk of AirAsia where we stand in line to get our tickets to Phuket, as we arrive at the counter we give our

In todays society people want to have everything they want right now, we just want the end results instead of thinking of the journey to get there.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil is definitely one of the top destinations on everyones bucket list. For us visiting Rio was an absolute must. Everything you see on TV from the white-sand beaches to the music, carnival, soccer, food etc etc makes you want to visit Rio. When we decided to go to Brazil in 2013 of all the places we wanted to go, we decided to visit Sao Paulo for a few days and then headed out to Rio. If you decide to do this same route, what

This is a post for me to reflect on how I personally use technology just so you know that I'm not preaching on this subject. How many of you pick up your phone the time you open your eyes in the morning before raising out of bed and do the same thing when you lay at night before you go to sleep. I'm a victim of this epidemic of filling our lives in front of a color screen every single minute of our wakens hours, we jump from

I have heard many stories about Punta del Este in Uruguay and how it was the "Miami" of South America, every now and then you will hear about Latin personalities such as Shakira and Enrique Iglesias spending their holidays in Punta del Este, but was it really even remotely similar to Miami or any other beach city or town in the US?
