I went out for my long run at 7 and felt pretty decent most of the way. It was hot and I was tired, but I wasn’t dying. I had breakfast at the hostel, Ryokan Muntri Boutique Hostel, with Amanda plus a German girl who asked to sit with us. She was fine at first, … More 6/11/18: Vegan Food Tour of George Town, Penang
I woke up for another run. I haven’t really done too many runs twice in a row during my travels, but today I felt like it. I did the same route as yesterday, just a big longer. I wish I started out a bit earlier though, because the sun was killing me on the second … More 6/5/18: Gross Beach & Great Vegan Food (Borneo)
I woke up and had breakfast at the guesthouse: bread with fruit. During breakfast I talked with Tom, a friend from high school, on the phone. It was really nice and long overdue. I hadn’t talked to him since I left four months ago. Adrian, Tim, Mateus and I left for the 100 Waterfalls trek … More 4/26/18: 100 Waterfalls Trek (Nong Khiaw)

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)
Today’s breakfast was a nice break from the usual toast and jam. They gave us a couple samosas (plus some bread and fruit). I went to the same electronic store as yesterday to help Hannah get a new phone. She had dropped her phone in the water-filled boat a couple days before and totally destroyed … More 2/15/18: Last Day With Hannah 😩 😩
We woke up to the sounds of the young monks doing their daily morning chanting. At 7 we had breakfast: crepes with honey and fruit. The crepes were definitely made with an egg or two, but I ate them anyway because otherwise I would have had nothing to eat (plus, the eggs probably came from … More 2/13/18: Final Day of Trekking
