Remembering How Weird My Life Is

If I hear my dad say, “that’s a good story for the blog” one more time, I might chuck a mango at his head. But I have to admit the man has a point.   For the last two weeks I’ve been traveling through Bali with my parents and it’s been like seeing with fresh …

What I’ve Learned in 6 Months of Solo Travel

  “The pumpkin spice flavors are coming out,” a friend back home told me over the phone. Caught off guard, I looked at the calendar asking, “Wait, what month is it?!” I’ve been living in perpetual summer since I started traveling and without a changing of seasons—or any kind of schedule, really—I’ve lost track of …

Monthly Recap: August

The last month has felt like I was Alice dropped down the rabbit hole, only instead of chairs and lamps flying past my head it was komodo dragons and rickety boats and volcanoes—oh, and flurry of mojitos. Needless to say, my first month in Indonesia has been a whirlwind. I haven’t blogged in a month …

I’m Going, Going, Back, Back, to Bali, Bali

The rush of a waterfall, a fresh mountain breeze. Lush green rice paddies, the fragrant smell of jasmine. Fiery sunsets and serenity. Memories of Bali wash in and out, like the gentle lapping of a calm morning beach. Two years ago I flew to Bali to escape the insanity of my life in Korea. Expecting …

A Week With Elephants: Volunteering at Elephant Nature Park

Scooping poop, chopping down a cornfield, and chucking around watermelons are not some of the more glamorous things I’ve done in my life, but it was all worth it to spend a week with elephants.   Playing with elephants is one of the most quintessential things to do in Thailand so when my friends from …

Monthly Recap: June 2015

The end of this month really snuck up on me! June was full of surprises and spontaneous decisions and most of it was pretty damn incredible. I wrote in last month’s post that Thailand was slowly stealing my heart and it’s true; after two months here, I’m head over heels for this country. But to …

Monthly Recap: May 2015

The Philippines is like that lover I keep coming back to. Vietnam is the one with everything I want but we’ll only ever be friends. Cambodia used and abused me, but I know I’ll still go back for more. Thailand, now, is in the process of slowly courting me. While it didn’t initially steal my …

Monthly Recap: April 2015

April has been a month of stuffing my face and adventuring through the country of Vietnam. I worked my way north to south, from trekking in the highlands to lounging on the beaches and everything in between. My body has inflated like a balloon and I’m like a walking cup of jiggly jello, but every …
