Bangkok Street Food Guide

After 10 days of exploring Thailand, I only had 24 hours to experience the mega metropolis of Bangkok.

First Impressions of Sydney

The girl in front of me on the flight to Sydney leans forward and taps the women in front of her… “Excuse me miss, I think my friend kicked her thong under your seat, can you check for us?” My ears inevitably perked up, and I looked around to see if anyone else was as easily excited.

Travel Deeper Australia Begins

Each and every Travel Deeper adventure has been a direct result of the previous one. I moved to Colombia after rooming with two great Colombians in Argentina. I volunteered in Ecuador, Bolivia and Guatemala after living a very sinful lifestyle in Colombia. And, I moved to Brazil after discovering the importance of the World Cup from every Latin American country …
