Sitting here in a rainstorm in Krabi waiting for the bus, rain drops the size of my fingernails. Ko Phi Phi (prodnounced Ko P P) was awesome, if just a tad touristy. 500 Baht from our our door in Phuket to the beach at Ko Phi Phi. Didn't get out to the cove from The Beach, but it was awesome nonetheless with water as warm as a bath. After that headed to Lanta. Ko Lanta was amazing, found a great secluded beach just to chill,… Continue

Today we'll be headed out to Ko Phi Phi, where parts of The Beach were filmed. For about 500 Baht (a little over ten bucks), we get picked up at the hostel and taken to the piers where a boat will take us out there. I'm sure there are other/better deals, but it's not like savings are being lost here if we screw up once or twice. Just finished some Pad Thai with fresh-squeezed OJ for 65 Baht (less than $2).… Continue

Ok, left the apt. in Narita for the airport at 7:30 AM, headed to Bangkok via Taipei, contemplated just saying "to hell with it, let's do Taipei again", got to Bangkok around 5-ish, did the customs/immigration thing, snagged a ticket at the Air Asia booth near check-in (about 60 bucks US), got delayed at Gate B1B for an hour, finally got to Phuket 10-ish after the time change, grabbed the first taxi (usually a travel no-no, but at 200 Baht/~$6… Continue

So tomorrow (or later today for some of you) we'll be headed off to Thailand for a week of vegetation. We have it narrowed down to Ko Chang and Krabi, not too sure which yet. Either way, should be one hell of a trip. Here's where you all come in. We need ideas of what to possibly see and do. As usual, we'll try to address recommendations if they are possible, but probably won't be able to hit everything (this is a… Continue

Ok, got back from Kyoto last night. While it was definitely cool, things got a little hectic. A few must sees were hit. Friday morning we got out to Fushimi Inari (the hike with the red gates), saw another temple (can't recall the name right now), and saw the Gion district at night.
Saturday we took the express to Osaka to meet up with a friend since we couldn't get out to Himeji. I (Phil) thought going to Osaka for a day was a waste of… Continue

Kyoto so far is killer, and we'll be showing you some of it really soon. First impressions? A lot, almost too much, to see and do, but hitting the essentials (for us at least) in a weekend is, or will be, definitely doable. Regarding the temples, it seems to me more like a personal kind of thing. There isn't only one you HAVE TO to see, but do your research and check out what you think would be cool. We'll show you where we went, but obviously when traveling youve gotta do whats good for #1.… Continue

Sitting here at work, bored as hell as I fiddle with the cyanide tablet, I figured that as soon as I get home I'll put up another video. Just because. Oh, and check out the forums, because we need more ideas about things to do in Kyoto. After that we'll probably be headed to southern Thailand for a few days, so give us some thoughts on that too! We'll keep you . . . posted? Ah, I kill me.

What is up, people? Don't know how often we'll be updating the actual blog, but we'll definitely be putting up photos and videos. If anything earth-shattering happens, obviously we'll let you know. Also, pay attention to what we're doing and help us decide where to go and what to see. The whole point of our little show is not only to do what WE want, but to show you all what YOU want to see.
