4/16/18: Making Friends On The Street

The tuk-tuk drove us to catch our night buses around 1 am. There were six of us leaving. Four were going south, and two were going north. The system was really funny— the bus driver would call the tuk-tuk driver to let him know it was close, and then the tuk-tuk driver would take us … More 4/16/18: Making Friends On The Street

3/1/18: Cycling Around Ninh Binh

I started off the morning by having breakfast with Mike, Jody, and Mahlia. My breakfast was a sad plate of bread and shitty fake jam. Thank god I saved my banana from the restaurant the night before, or else that would have been really bad. I just finished my jar of black tahini so I … More 3/1/18: Cycling Around Ninh Binh

7/23/18: Wild Sea Turtles, Private Yoga, Sri Lankan Calzone

We woke up around 8:30 and went down to the lobby of Mirissa Beach Inn for breakfast. The staff brought out a big plate of toast, some hoppers (string and normal), daal, onion sambol, fruit platters, jam, butter, tea, and coffee. Man, what a FEAST. I ate most of the string hoppers with daal and sambol, … More 7/23/18: Wild Sea Turtles, Private Yoga, Sri Lankan Calzone

6/24/18: Street Fights, Street Food, Street Dancing (Bangkok)

We were woken up at 5:30 by the station management. They needed us to get out of bed so they could convert the beds into normal seats. It was fascinating to watch— they somehow took the bunk beds and turned them into normal train benches, like Transformers. We watched the sunrise from the train, which … More 6/24/18: Street Fights, Street Food, Street Dancing (Bangkok)

6/17/18: Phi Phi Makes You Koo Koo

I tried to go for a run, but I was unsure where to go since this island is so tiny. I first ran to Long Beach, going through beaches and random tracks along the way. Once I got there, I turned back and ran to the main pier by Ton Sai town. I went all … More 6/17/18: Phi Phi Makes You Koo Koo

6/12/18: Reunited With The Germans In Thailand

My alarm clock went off at 4:40. I was extremely tired— I wasn’t really able to sleep at all. We got our bags together and went downstairs to the lobby to wait for our van to take us to our next destination: Koh Lanta, Thailand. Amanda and I both were struggling; I was bloated, she … More 6/12/18: Reunited With The Germans In Thailand

5/27/18: Dates Don’t Exist In France

I’m at a time in my life where I could literally live anywhere, and would probably move somewhere for a guy if he was the right one. However, I have to balance that with my own independence. I don’t want to give up my independence and personal goals for a guy. … More 5/27/18: Dates Don’t Exist In France

Overdue Laos Pics

These are all from last month, taken on Mateus’ nice camera. He kindly sent them over to me recently, so I thought I’d share. Just a bit of background: I met Adrian, Falko, and Mateus in Vientiane, Laos. I basically approached them on the street and asked if I could join whatever they were doing. … More Overdue Laos Pics
