// We’ve been in Asia for a month! That is crazy to me. You wouldn’t know it from my blog (still working on those New Zealand recaps), but we’ve been in Thailand (and a little bit of Singapore) since April 5th. Wild.
Oh hey, that’s me right now!
// Thailand has been interesting. I’ll write about the country and days in more detail, but suffice to say nothing is what it seems in Thailand.
// I’ve had one bout of sickness that lasted for about four days, but otherwise I’ve been doing well. Luckily my food poisoning wasn’t terrible. It was mostly inconvenient and a little painful. But not as bad as other stories I’ve heard. Adam has a stomach of steel and he’s been almost 100 the whole time we’ve been here. I’m hoping my stomach and bacteria toughened up during my short period of sickness.
Thailand loves temples
// I’m going to start a new weekly feature on the blog where I post a photo of the week. Since my bulkier recaps are so far behind, I wanted to post something that’s a little bit more relevant to how the current week is going. So on Fridays, I’ll be publishing a short post with a photo and small update on how our week has been.
My favorite activity, eating
// I really need to figure out how to watch Game of Thrones over here. I’m about to quit Twitter for the rest of our trip just so I’m not spoiled. I’ve already been a little spoiled and I don’t know how to avoid it besides just giving up social media!
// I, like the rest of the world, am obsessed with Lemonade. I even signed up for Tidal Singapore. The things Beyonce makes you do. I still haven’t listened to Views; Drake is farther down the totem pole.
We went zip lining!
// We booked our return trip! We’ve been monitoring dates and flight miles for the last month and a really good deal popped up yesterday. We’ll be back in the good ole U S of A on June 25th. Now that we have a return date I really feel like we’re under a deadline! Only a little over 7 weeks to go! Eeek. We’re over halfway done with this trip.
Celebrating Songkran, Thai New Year, in Bangkok
// We’ve also booked out the rest of our flights for the duration of the trip. Our remaining time is about another month in Chiang Mai, a night in Malaysia, 4 nights in Cambodia, 4 in Hong Kong, 15 in Vietnam, and then a week in Japan. So we’re basically chilling out for the next month and then it’s go, go, go our last four weeks.
// America, I thought you guys would be done with Trump by now. Please. Stop him.
What up, America!
Just navigating through a million market stalls to get to our hostel
Hope you’re having a good week!
