Six continents. Thirty countries. Two laptops. Come along on a trip around the world.
Over the next eight months, the Boston-based Longjaunt team will be traveling the world, and they're packing you in their bags for the ride. We invite you to share your photos along the way and tell your story.
July and August: India and Thailand
Blog Explore the park
Our explorers were excited to rent mopeds for a day to explore Doi Suthep National Park.
Blog Take a walk
Discover Chiang Mai's famous Sunday Walking Market, where local craftspeople sell jewelry, textiles, and other unique Thai souvenirs.
Blog Discover Railay, Thailand
Long Jaunt's first encounter with the Railay peninsula left them at a loss — the beach was filled with so much beauty, but so much of it was wasted.
Blog Travel life
With one explorer fearing a return of malaria and another curious of the local amenities, Long Jaunt made their way to a nearby hospital.
Blog Discover Bangkok
Discover why the popular book "The Beach" describes Bangkok's Khao San Road as "the centre of the backpacking universe."
After two weeks on the road from Mumbai, Long Jaunt arrived in Delhi, the final destination of their mini-tour of India.
Hundreds of gay-rights activists and supporters took to the streets of New Delhi demanding the repeal of a 145-year-old Indian law that makes homosexuality illegal.
Blog An ultimate tourist attraction
There's sight seeing — and then there's seeing the Taj Mahal. Our explorers were in awe of this iconic tomb.
Blog More monkeys
More monkeys! Since Long Jaunt can't get enough of "their brothers from another mother," they made their way to Galta, the Monkey Palace.
Blog Explore Jodhpur
Discover an urban sea of indigo-washed buildings in the city of Jodhpur in the Indian state of Rajasthan.
Blog Exploring Rajasthan
Departing Udaipur early, Long Jaunt set out on a full day of travel through the heart of Rajasthan to The Blue City Jodhpur, stopping at two of Rajasthans most stunning landmarks along the way.
Blog Explore Sajjangarh
See stunning views of the city of Udaipur from the "Monsoon Palace," the former residence of the region's royal family.
Blog Rural Rajasthan
Donned in colorful saris, thickly-wrapped turbans, and ear-to-ear smiles, the people of Rajasthan are a compelling part of the city.
Blog Late night glimpse
Our explorers rolled into India's most romantic city, Udaipur, on a late-night bus, catching only a tease of what the city had in store.
Blog The old city center
Long Jaunt explores the old city center of Ahmedabad and discovers a bustling maze of streets, food carts, and shoppers.
With Thushan fading fast, Long Jaunt headed to the doctor's office for a diagnosis — but not before watching the Celtics win the NBA championship on tape delay.
Our explorers felt under the weather after an all-night bus trip from Mumbai to Ahmedabad. Thushan was hit worst of all, with a fever, body aches, and general exhaustion — early warning signs of malaria.
Mumbai's trains are a reflection of the city itself: big, loud, and crowded. They carry more than 2 million people daily.
Blog Crowds of Mumbai
Discover cricket matches, heavenly smells, and crowds in the streets of Mumbai.
Blog Reconnecting with friends
After two weeks in Sri Lanka, our explorers headed north to India and the sub-continent's largest city, Mumbai, for a mini-reunion with some old friends.
