Earthquakes are CRAZY! Experienced my first (only a 5.3) and it freaked me out. That and some of the loudest thunder I've ever heard made last night pretty wild. Outside of that, Bali continues to deliver the goods. We had a day trip to a small island nearby that gave us some epic views as well as a chance to watch this guy fish from way above the coastline.
► As we prepare to head to Cambodia on Monday, we have been attempting to get our winter plans locked in. We are PUMPED that we landed another PETSIT taking us back to Singapore for 3 weeks during the holidays. The owners get to go back to their home country, and we get a free place to stay while hanging out with a dog. Win-Win. What is this petsit thing, you ask? Check out this podcast or go straight to their site.
QUICK TIP: While booking our flight for that Singapore trip, I had to get creative to keep my airline miles within a program I will use. When using flight search tools like Skyscanner or Google Flights to find the cheapest flights, be sure to find out what the PARENT COMPANY is of the airline that you are choosing. In our case, we are flying on SilkAir, which is part of Singapore Airlines, which is part of Star Alliance (United is in this group). So I booked directly with Singapore Airlines (same price) and selected my United Mileage for our bonus miles.

► Are you looking for a new day bag for the gym or walking around town? I picked up this new day bag at the mall from Sea to Summit a few weeks ago, and I love it. Super light! I added it to our list items on the Amazon Store.
► In this week’s podcast episode, we talk through our ideas on the Best Travel Spots for 2019 (Places You May NOT Know).
We are not going to talk about the top 20 travel destinations around the world but focus on the locations that sometimes get overlooked. We look at 10 of our favorite spots for doing all the things we love to do - food, scooters, beaches, culture, history, festivals, music, meeting new friends and socializing.
Our list includes Lisbon, Krakow, Greek Islands, Panama City, Da Nang, Sicily, San Pedro de Atacama, Koyasan, Alicante, and the Isle of Man. This may be the first time you are hearing about some of these locations. Tune in to find out why you need to consider each for 2019.
Hope your plans for Thanksgiving are coming together.
Hit you next week from Cambodia!
