It's that time of year again, and I've got the travel bug! The adventures will begin with the whole family in Vietnam and Cambodia. After my dad flies home, my ma, sister, and I will explore the beaches of Thailand. Then, my sister and I are let loose to roam Southeast Asia heading towards Nepal and northern India. Mid April I fly to Zambia to volunteer for a month at Appeased School before starting work in San Francisco. Ready or not, HERE I COME!

A Whole New Bed
A whole new bed,
A new fantastic point of view,
No one to tell me where to sleep,
Or say I’m only dreaming.
Well shit… here I am on a night train from Bangkok to Laos
in someone else’s sleeper bunk with nothing but my tablet, wallet, and
passport. Clearly I missed the memo that they lock the door between cars during
the night. It all started out with a beer at the bar and meeting some Aussies.
The bar car closed so we headed back to the groups’ car to chat. We were
somewhat warned but with the language barrier, I thought it was just a noise
complaint. As soon as I decided to be responsible and get in bed by midnight, I
found out that the doors were locked. Thankfully my new friends gave me a bed
and a bottle of water so I’m off to sleep.
Traveling lesson: make the best out of the situation.
