One of my favorite travel moments was traveling by hot air balloon in Thailand at the Pattaya International Balloon Festival. I always wondered where hot air balloons land.
It turns out, wherever there is space! Upon landing in a farmer’s field, these local children ran over to help us roll up the balloon. It was a cool moment – dropping from the sky, and having the kids greet us. We didn’t understand each other, but knew exactly what each other was thinking.

Enjoy your weekend. I’ll see you out there…!
The view as you approach the Batu Caves (no official homepage available) is unmistakeable. The limestone caves are home to a Hindu Shrine and are worthy of a visit outside of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia if only to see something strikingly different than what we have here in the United States.
At the base of the caves is a 140-foot statue dedicated to Lord Murugan, a Hindu Deity.
Pace yourself as you climb onward. The stairs are steep. Every once in a while, be sure to stop and turnaround to see the city off in the distance.
The City of Bangkok is known for it’s many sky bars – rooftop bars towering over the city. And if there’s one bar that you should visit on your trip to Thailand, it’s The Dome at Lebua – made famous from it’s appearance in a Bombay Sapphire ad.
Located on the 63rd floor of the State Tower, the Sky Bar is a classy establishment and one of Bangkok’s finest. There is a dress code to enter, though nothing too strict. No shorts, jeans, t-shirts, sneakers, etc.
