One of the best ways to get off the beaten path in SE Asia is to hop in a kayak! Much of local life in Asia revolves around water, so floating through the countryside is a great way to experience rural life and see some spectacular scenery.

Wild Cambodian Sticky Rice Recipe

Wild Cambodian Sticky Rice Recipe
For many years now I’ve been a lover of sticky rice, but on a recent trip to Cambodia I experienced a new take on this delicious dessert. In the streets of a very small and remote town, a man hovered over a large fire meticulously rotating stuffed banana leaves. Our guide handed the man some coins and two very charred pouches were handed over, still steaming hot from the fire. Inside I found a perfectly crisp, golden brown lump of sticky rice. I was amazed and inspired by the taste and texture of this treat and decided I needed to find a way to make it at home. The ingredients and supplies needed for this sticky rice are as follows: 1 C Thai Glutinous Rice 1 C Canned Coconut Milk 1/3 C Organic Sugar 1 Bag Frozen Banana Leaves Toothpicks Aluminum Foil You will also need either a rice steamer or...

The Ultimate Women's Packing Guide for Southeast Asia Adventures

The Ultimate Women's Packing Guide for Southeast Asia Adventures
Southeast Asia is filled with breathtaking views, ancient temples and some of the friendliest people in the world. There are many great Southeast Asia adventures to be had in this culturally diverse area, so to maximize your enjoyment of these activities I’ve prepared a comprehensive packing list to help you prepare for this amazing experience. Travel skirts are a great way to stay comfortable and keep cool in the heat of the day; however, you need to be cautious with the length as many temples and other sites will not permit you to enter if your skirt is too short. Exofficio’s Go-To Stripe Skirt is quick drying, moisture wicking and even includes a hidden zippered pocket for your cash. This skirt is also modest in length, allowing you to wear it anywhere. I pair my skirt with the Techspressa Support Tank , which is also quick drying and has a built-in...

Beyond the Galapagos - Experience Raja Ampat and The Coral Triangle

Beyond the Galapagos - Experience Raja Ampat and The Coral Triangle
The sun rises and sets at 6:30am and 6:30pm every day along the equator all year, every year where two stunning archipelagos of unique life and great marine biodiversity tempt adventure seekers to experience their natural wonders. Every sunrise and sunset is an inspiring and life-affirming sight to behold even if it only flirts with our senses for a fleeting moment at the center of the planet. On opposite sides of the globe sit the Galapagos, that Darwinian ecological mecca of rugged volcanic terrain and highly adapted animal life, and it’s lesser known sister nation in Natural Selection, Raja Ampat, Indonesia. Raja Ampat sits at the heart of The Coral Triangle and is home to the most diverse, exceptional and plentiful underwater species of coral and marine life in the world. So stunning, it has been dubbed “Heaven on Earth” for its paradisiacal beauty. “Bucket” lists and “Top-Islands-to-Visit” lists and “Best-Adventure-Ever”...
