  • I confess, I have been Laazy

  • Week 19
    Week two in Asia was just as good as week one, if not better. Hanoi still never ceases to amaze me and I’m just melting of happiness with the food…and because it’s sooo freaking hot. No joke, it’s like 95 degrees with 95% humidity here every. single. day. g Work ... read more

  • Week 18
    I’m here! I made it to Asia! (Minus one wallet..but we won’t talk about that..) g Hanoi is quite simply insane. As organized and regulated and civilized as Europe is, Hanoi just throws all of that out the window. There seem to be exactly zero rules here. We went from ... read more

  • How 4 days in Greece turned into 1 year around the world
    Until a little over a year ago, I really didn’t get traveling.I had never done any extensive traveling outside of North America, so I didn’t see what all the fuss was about. Instead of wanting to eat tapas in Barcelona or drink Hefeweizen in Berlin, I opted to spend my ... read more

  • Back That Month Up | Chiang Mai
    Oh, no! We’re halfway there.Having Hanoi as our first stop in Asia was, in my opinion, the scheduling equivalent of getting a pack of all orange Starbursts — it was the best possible scenario for everyone involved, obviously.
