Just in case anyone is still reading and wondering what happened . . .    Ive been home a little more than a week now. I wasn’t getting better on the gastro-intestinal front and was starting to get a little worried. Turns out I ... Read more >

Smooth as silk

INDIA | Thursday, 21 Jan 2016 | Views [452]

  While California gets drenched with rainstorm after rainstorm (yay!), I have had a nearly rain-less time while traveling in Asia. Until yesterday.    It was misting a little when I left the hotel at around 11am to go silk scarf ... Read more >

Varanasi (Part 2)

INDIA | Sunday, 17 Jan 2016 | Views [546]

So now that my health has taken a dive (I still have lingering GI probs and now a cold to top it off), I am re-thinking my ambitious plans to make it all the way around the globe which I didn’t really plan out that well in the first place. I always ... Read more >

Varanasi (Part 1.5-ish)

INDIA | Friday, 15 Jan 2016 | Views [358]

Health update: slowly but surely getting back to normal and focusing mainly on that. I should probably wait until I am closer to being 100% to give my honest opinion about Varanasi. Right now, it is probably the last place in the world that I want to ... Read more >

Varanasi (part 1)

INDIA | Thursday, 14 Jan 2016 | Views [513]

One full day in Delhi

INDIA | Monday, 11 Jan 2016 | Views [393]

I had one whole day in Delhi to figure out what to do with. I didn’t intend Delhi to be much more than a travel hub, so I didn’t do a heck of a lot of research on it. Trying to tackle it was not recommended, and I wasn’t tempted to.... Read more >

Arriving in India (Delhi)

INDIA | Monday, 11 Jan 2016 | Views [426]

On the morning of my flight to India, I realized I was sad to leave Thailand. I would miss the giggly thai people who I had come to admire a lot. I never really connected with any of them though. They seem shy, or reserved when it comes to interacting ... Read more >

Last day in SE Asia, Thailand, Bangkok, Sukhumvit

THAILAND | Sunday, 10 Jan 2016 | Views [428]

A couple weeks before I left the U.S., I had a cavity filled in one of my back teeth. My dentist said it would be sensitive for a while, which it was. But I noticed a week or two ago that it had gotten a little bit more sensitive and I suspected something ... Read more >

THAILAND | Sunday, 10 Jan 2016 | Views [426]

Stuck in Sukhumvit

THAILAND | Thursday, 7 Jan 2016 | Views [408]

Last night I decided I was done with the Sukhumvit area, or more like, I decided I just can’t physically take this area any longer . . . but  I didn’t make a 'next plan' for today.    I had a vague plan of doing yoga, ... Read more >

Halong Bay Cruise

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 6 Jan 2016 | Views [344]

Hopefully the pictures speak for themselves. I took over 100 in 3 days but these are my favotite. The views were amazing. The cruise very touristy. My favorite part was the people I met (mostly German and from the UK -England and Scottland). Will write ... Read more >

A walk on the seedy side

THAILAND | Wednesday, 6 Jan 2016 | Views [420]

I felt like I needed some greenery again this morning, so I took a walk to a park which didn’t look like much of anything on the map, but turned out to be a really awesome oasis, complete with singing and chirping birds that were quite pleasant ... Read more >

New digs in Sukhumvit

THAILAND | Tuesday, 5 Jan 2016 | Views [411]

This morning I checked out of my middle-of-nowhere hotel and into a kick-ass hotel a couple miles away. Before doing so, I visited a landmark near my old digs called “Golden Mountain”. Its another temple as you might guess from the “... Read more >

Penny-less in Bangkok (Chinatown/Megamalls/Sukhimvit)

THAILAND | Saturday, 2 Jan 2016 | Views [435]

The last entry (the Happy New Year one) was written by Penny but she got a phone call halfway through from the front desk saying her taxi to the airport had arrived, so she didn’t have time to finish (hence all of my interjections and a few small ... Read more >
