The Sun Rises Early

Ah, the joys of flexible travel. We leave Ao Nang tomorrow for a night bus (ugh) to Bangkok. Day after that we get on another day-long bus ride to Siem Reap, Cambodia. We’ll be in Cambodia for three weeks, at which we fly back to Bangkok with our cheap $25/person flight. Awesome.

After that, we were going to Myanmar. Due to a great flight deal we found, we won’t be going to Myanmar until probably January or February (we ARE still going, Mom :P). Instead, we’re flying straight from Bangkok to Osaka, Japan.

That’s right. Japan. I’ve been looking forward to this since we first started talking about travel, and Indi is very excited about seeing places that mean so much to her and helped shape her into who she is today. We hope to spend most of our time in and around the Osaka/Kyoto area.

After we’re done in Japan, we’ll take a ferry to China and work our way back to Myanmar and other Asian points of interest before we jet to Europe.

We are so. very. excited!!

He discovered a passion for photography while traveling throughout Southeast Asia and Europe. After returning home, he looked at his home town and Oklahoma heritage with fresh eyes. When he began to explore his home state, Rhys turned his attention to historic Route 66. As he became familiar with the iconic highway, he began to truly appreciate Oklahoma’s place along the Mother Road. He has traveled all 2,400 miles of Route 66, from Chicago to Los Angeles. He has also driven many miles on rural Oklahoma highways to explore the fading Main Streets of our small towns. Rhys has a desire to find and share the unique qualities of the Sooner State with the rest of the world. Cloudless Lens Photography has been featured in several publications including This Land, Route 66 Magazine, Nimrod Journal, Inbound Asia Magazine, The Oklahoman, and the Tulsa World. In 2018 he published his first book, Lost Restaurants of Tulsa.
