When Tammi moved to Yangon, Myanmar several years ago, she started a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) club in her own apartment after not being able to find one in the city. She eventually joined forces with Jojo & Jerome of Yangon Yoga House, sharing the yoga studio to teach BJJ classes. That led to them … More #87: BJJ Fighter & Nourish Cafe Bangkok’s Tammi Willis
I did a huge loop around the neighborhood for my morning run, ending near the big morning market by the hotel. I went up to the same coffee lady as the day before. There two girls were ahead of me ordering coffee. Once they were done, I didn’t even say anything and she started making … More 6/27/18: Traveling to SRI LANKA!
Isabeau had to leave for her flight at 7:30, so we all said bye to each other before she got in her cab to the airport. I went for a run. I did 1 mile warm up, then 2 minutes hard pace followed by 1 minute recovery for 2 miles, then 1 mile cool down, … More 6/26/18: Running Around Bangkok
Adrian and I had breakfast down in the lobby of our hotel in Bangkok around 10 am. I had some of my leftover rambutan and sweet potato with coffee. We went back to bed for a bit and got up around noon. I needed to get some batteries for my recorder; I had an interview … More 6/25/18: Finally Getting Some Protein
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)
This morning I went for a 4 mile run: tempo. It sucked! It was so hot, but it also felt nice by the end… that’s always how tempo runs go, isn’t it? After breakfast I went to look for a cafe to work in. It took me forever to find somewhere, and I ended up … More 1/23/18: Bye Bangkok/Hello Myanmar
I decided to try out a trendy cafe today and went to Rocket Coffeebar. It was wayyyy overpriced. I paid $5 for coffee and water -___- uuummm Anyway, after the cafe I walked to House of Joy for lunch. I got Chinese noodle soup, which was good and healthy, but the restaurant itself was lacking … More 1/22: Craziest Massage Of My Life
Today was a doooozy! So much walking. I started off with an eight mile run around Lumpini Park and some random kinda sketchy street. For breakfast I had a traditional Thai bread bun filled with red bean. While I was eating, I met a fellow blogger & runner so we chatted for a bit. I … More 1/21/18: Vegan Finds At The Thai Food Festival!
I woke up in Bangkok a little tired but functioning. I got off the bus and waited in the long taxi line. Eventually it was my turn to hop in. I looked into the front window, hoping and praying that it would be someone who spoke English. “Everyday Hostel, do you know?” A series of … More 1/20/18: Back In Bangkok
Sometimes, budget travel means crazy long hours on a bus (or two). After a semi-productive morning editing a vlog and eating food (most important!!), I headed to Pai’s bus station to catch the bus to Chiang Mai. I sat at the front passenger seat, which was scary because the driver was driving pretty dangerously… passing … More 1/19/18: 16 Hours of Travel
