We just got back from a beautiful but intense three days on Rishiri Island, a tiny island off of Hokkaido in northern Japan. We talk about our 8-hour hike, cycling around the island, Joseph accidentally wearing my clothes all day, and a horrific restaurant experience.

I woke up at 7:30 at Adrian & co’s Airbnb in Old Town Koh Lanta. I had gotten locked out of my hostel the night before and crashed on their living room mattress for the night. Adrian drove me back to my hostel, which I felt really bad about. But the public transportation in Koh … More 6/14/18: Oh My Lanta!
We woke up around 6:30 on the floor of a balcony in northern Laos. It was admittedly a bit nice to wake up outside to crisp, clean air, but I was also in a lot of discomfort from sleeping on wooden planks the whole night. We decided to go find the owner, Gabriel, to get … More 4/30/18: Hardest Hike Yet: Muang Ngoi, Laos
I woke up around 8 am and went down to get breakfast from the hostel (Easy Go Backpackers— highly recommend!). I got a fruit salad and a baguette. I sat with some others that I met the night before (Kevin and Jonny) and we all ate together. Kevin said he was going to take the … More 4/6/18: Paradise On 4 Thousand Islands (Laos)

I thought to myself, “How am I possibly going to ride a bike right now?” I walked to the guest house next door, Hidden Home, and waited for the owner to open up; I had talked … More 4/2/18: Solo Cycling Tour of Angkor Wat
After breakfast I went to Rosie’s Cafe, a cafe recommended to me by Libby & Marcel (see their Hoi An vegan recs here), and worked on the blog. I went back to the tailor to try on my clothes that I had ordered yesterday. Everything needed a bit of adjusting: the jeans were way too … More 3/5/18: Everyone Is Rich In Heaven
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
I woke up super early today for some reason. I went downstairs to get breakfast, which included this interesting Shan-style coconut noodle soup. It reminded me a lot of Thailand, and I liked it! I chatted with my friends from trekking (Phillipp, Rob, Hannah, Barak) for a while at breakfast, and then went to get … More 2/14/18: Valentine’s Day In Mynamar
