Away we go to Phuket…


While in Phuket we took a day trip to the Phi Phi Islands. It was a very bumpy boat ride & very crowded once we got there but it was worth it.

I spent the rest of my time in Phuket by the pool…

Thanks again, Ellen for coming to visit!


Away we go to Bali…


Back when I was employed I had a pretty awesome job as an International Recruiter at Microsoft. I worked with a wonderful group of recruiters. Ellen was one of those peps. She came to visit Singapore a few weeks ago. We had originally planned to travel to Bali but there was a mishap with Ellen’s return trip so she found herself with four more days in South East Asia. We pooled our Starwood points and found a Westin Hotel in Phuket so a little trip to Thailand was also booked.

First up Ubud- Bali (one of my new favorite places)

Like a good wife I used, Expedia & found a great deal to stay at Bebek Tepi Sawah.

We went on a wonderful bike tour around Ubud. It started off at a coffee plantation, took us by rice fields and through varies villages. It was the highlight of my trip!

I can’t wait to go back with Matt!!!

Away we go to London & Amsterdam…


Way back in September I was able to tag along with Matt on one of his work trips to London. I’ve never been to England before so I was super excited. We also made a quick trip to Amsterdam to visit our dear friends Kirk & Bre and meet their new baby girl!

First stop Emirates Stadium, Go Arsenal!
