a little about us

Pierce and Laurel are a young Canadian couple who grew up in BC & Alberta Canada. They met each other 3 years ago through a mutual friends birthday party. They hit it off and have been together ever since. Pierce has always wanted to travel to Thailand for his love of food and sunny weather. He decided to go solo the first time and scope out the land of smiles. He loved it so much that he wanted Laurel to experience the same thing. The following winter they both set out on a two month vacation in Thailand. Laurel fell to the inevitable - a love for the culture and food Thailand has to offer. Which brings us to here and now.

We enjoy the little things in life. A nice sunset on a beach or a spicy rice dish on the side of the road. Riding our scooters through the mountains of Chiang Mai or hopping in a tuk tuk and feeling the wind on your face after a long night of drinking and eating. It’s the little things really.

Pierce Jones

Pierce is a freelance website designer and travel addict. He thoroughly enjoys writing about his experiences abroad and loves making new personal connections that last a lifetime. Having been to Thailand a few times beforehand – something always calls him back.

Pierce grew up in Vancouver with his father before moving to live with his grandparents in Kelowna when he turned 12. He always had a love for video games and creating movies with his friends. Once Pierce graduated from high school, he decided to pursue an education in Game Design. After graduating, he bought a Yamaha R6 and his passion suddenly changed. A career in motorcycles it was. But alas, he must do what must be done and that is quit his job and go on a travel spree and document the whole thing. We are young and always get told if “you don’t travel now, you probably never will”. Cheers to that!
