Since we’re dedicating the month of June to men, it only seems fitting to highlight those who take on the world from an interesting view. We want to celebrate the male travel bloggers who make exploring wellness spas and bungalows sound adventurous and daring. So for Man Month, here’s a look at some guys who made their way to Travaasa.
Matt Long reluctantly traveled to Travaasa Hana knowing he’d detox himself WiFi. Boasting that a bungalow on the beach is just that—an escape from our technological reality—scared Matt. But once he cracked open a beer, put his feet up and listened to the ambient sounds of nature, Matt’s tune changed. He’s a wanderer at heart, exploring all seven continents with curiosity and getting the lost in all the coolest places.
Always up for an adventure, Spencer Spellman expected something different as he arrived to Hana after a drive through golf courses and high rise resorts. But after an authentic Thai meal and a harmonious sunset by the balcony, Spencer saw something different in the secluded town. Snorkeling the next day with heavy waves and schools of fish was just one adventure. As editor in chief of the Expedia ViewFinder blog and the Traveling Philosopher, Spencer’s travel habit keeps him quite busy.
Andrew Harper stayed at Travaasa Austin with a set schedule of yoga, hiking, meditation, and wine tasting. The opulent views of the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve and an observational staff made for the perfect backdrop for a comfortable stay. Andrew Harper is a pseudonym for a man who was tired of the pretentious travel trends and started his own newsletter, The Hideaway Report.
Kevin Day first visited Hana back in 2003 for his honeymoon. Since returning, with his children this time, Kevin says not much has changed at Travaasa. But it’s much improved by the inclusion of cooking classes, cultural demos and more. Kevin is an editorial photographer and travel content producer who’s traveled all over the world with his wife and art director, Hailey.
Chris Crisman explored both Austin and Hana for commercial photography back in 2011. Capturing the adventurous spirit of Austin and soothing surroundings of Hana was all in a days work.
