30 Day Affair

As I strolled along a secluded beach I realized that today marks one month that I’ve been traveling through Asia. It’s ironic how quickly a month passes by and how much it changes you. It seems like a lifetime ago I said goodbye to my loved ones and hopped on a plane to India. henna.jpgA plane ride that marked the start of a grand life changing adventure. Four countries in one month: India, Thailand, Laos and now Vietnam. Already a lifetime of stories and experiences that I’ll never forget. IMG_2295.jpgThere’s been a lot of great experiences; from seeing the Taj Mahal,  to bonding with my host family in Goa and attending a wedding between Dubai business people that’s estimated cost was 10 million usd and that I was so underdressed for!

Of course the bad experiences always make for the most entertaining stories though! Let’s start with diarrhea for 5 days in India, to a 12 hour infested roach train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, then enduring such freezing weather that I’m still trying to recover from a cold two weeks later and a 24 hour bus ride from hell (Chiang Mai to Lau Prabang). henna.jpegI don’t know what I’ll encounter each day, it’s always something new and that’s what I love about traveling. Every day I wake up and feel like I’m dreaming. I have to keep reminding myself that this is my reality. Each experience is molding me into the woman I’m supposed to be and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me throughout the next few months.
