Adventures in Thailand

 This year's Christmas holidays were spent backpacking Southeast Asia with an amazing friend from school. 3 countries, 3 weeks and a shoestring budget by no means limited our appetite for local cuisine! Our travel path was as follows: Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Ko Phi Phi Don & Leh, Krabi Town, Kuala Lumpur, Denpasar and Ubud. Before leaving, we spent hours surfing the web and burying our noses in Lonely Planet guide books. It was a fateful day when we came across Mark Wiens' Thai Food guide and accompanying travel videos. It was everything we were looking for, and more! From what to eat, where to go, how to order, what condiments to use, and general face-stuffing techniques, we watched all of his Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur food videos and made it our mission to hit as many of the locations as possible. Many of our hot December days were spent ferrying, subway-ing and scouring street names for obscuring dining locations. It was the most fun we'd had in a while. A big thank you to Mark who made our trip a total foodie heaven!
