Special edition of my travel selfies coming at you with 10 featured below. It’s a funny old thing being back here in DC – there are days I miss being out there and on my own and other days I love the normality that the city gives me. For now, I think I’ll just live happily in the in between.
Day 31 – last night out in Bangkok with the crew and this crazy gal, Janie.
Day 32 – Andrea arrived in Bangkok! Off to Cambodia the next day.
Day 33 – Finally left Thailand after a month and made it to Siem Reap, Cambodia. Sorry for the weird smile, children were asking me for milk.
Day 34 – exploring Angkor Wat
Day 35 – what happens at the silk farm, stays at the silk farm. unless of course, you buy something…which you should, to support Angkor Artisans & Cambodian culture.
Day 36 – crazy day warrants crazy hair and Dammit Doll. Left Siem Reap at 9 AM. Made it to Phnom Penh 12 hours later (it’s only meant to be a 6 hour journey).
Day 37 – everyday at dawn and dusk, people gather around the city and do aerobics for all the world to see; shakin’ their groove thang to Katy Perry. Phnom Penh is currently in the lead with zero fucks to give.
Day 38 – went to the killing fields and S-21. It took me a few hours to digest everything I read and saw, but I’m really sharing this photo so more people can learn about Cambodia’s recent horrific history. Just as shocking as the genocide is that it never made it into a single US history lesson. So why should you care? Here’s why: “Keeping the memory of the atrocities committed on Cambodia soil alive is the key to build a new strong and just state…and preventing a new Pol Pot from emerging in the lands of Angkor or anywhere on Earth.” So go on, educate yourself, and be good to one another.
Day 39 – 20 million bikes and it feels like we’re playing a twisted game of Frogger every time we cross the street. Must be Vietnam.
Day 40 – right before Andrea and I crawled 100 meters through the Cu Chi Tunnels.
You know the drill, enjoy the ride.
Day 26 – Got caught up in the curse of Railay. It wasn’t pleasant, I was 1 of 25 that was violently ill. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone!
Day 27 – 36 hours later and I finally felt a bit better, but the curse of Railay is not to be taken lightly. Just a bit more hammock relaxation on Koh Phi Phi to get a bit more strength.
Day 28 – Koh Phi Phi boat party!
Day 29 – Sweaty Betty does the viewpoint hike over Koh Phi Phi
Day 30 – Ferry, bus, and a night train back to Bangkok. Long old travel day…
That last photo still makes me yawn every time I see it!
5 more selfies from Asia coming right up:
Day 21 – long tail boat to the floating bungalows in Khao Sok National Forest. Wind blown and loving life.
Day 22 – Weird party at the lake house where things definitely got weird.
Day 23 – rocking the VIP suite with some lovely ladies in Railay!
Day 24 – inappropriate fertility cave is inappropriate (and a good laugh) – Phra Nang Beach
Day 25 – just after rappelling don the side of a cliff. Did I mention I’m afraid of heights? Yeah, really pushed the limits today.
Me again, checking in and sharing 5 more selfies from my great Asian adventure.
Currently blogging from Vietnam, but there’s plenty more adventure to come! Stay tuned friends 🙂
Time flies when you’re having fun and I’ve been having an epic adventure. I’d be remiss to not go back and share my selfies, so here are 5 more to last you until I find another gap in my great Asian adventure. Whatever you do, stay tuned!
My mind, body, and heart are so much happier since I’ve arrived in Thailand. I find clarity in the most random people or adventures. While my mind does sometimes wander to places I wish didn’t exist, my heart (and belly) are happier…fuller most days. Without further ado, my first 5 days in selfies.
Stay tuned, 45 days remaining! 🙂
