Where O Where have I been?

OOye! It has been a serious whirlwind the last week and 1/2. I am now sitting at my hostel in Vietnam finally at a computer and trying to type out a blog post! I want to update you guys on everything but there is seriously so much. Its been a crazy crazy time. Going to 5 different countries in 3 1/2 weeks may have not been the brightest idea ever. We are country 3 and even though I really thought I would love Vietnam I can honestly say its not my favorite. 

Some quick highlights and photos is the best I can do for now: 

-First couple days alone in Phuket were spent relaxing, working on my tan, eating my favorite foods and making new friends. 


-My friend K arrived in the middle of the night after a delayed flight and subsequently missed taxi ride. We stayed awake because she would have had to pay for a bed to sleep in for 3 hours. 

-The Full Moon party was an amazing and awful experience all at once and really warrants its own post for explanation. BUT I will tell you this...there were tears and 2 broken cameras by the next day. 

-Chiang Mai was fantastic, great people, Ziplining, riding & bathing elephants and eating great food. 

-Really weird police experience in Bangkok on Khao San Road at 1am...along with a propostion from a Malaysian guy. 

-There was a missed flight leaving Bangkok to Siam Reap. A combination of setting our alarm for too late and not realizing that the international airport was so far away. 
Yep...that is the mess I was....

horrible picture but you get the idea

part of the Grand Palace 

-Amazing. Really just a great city I think!

-Angkor Wat is a 7th wonder for a reason and I highly HIGHLY recommend if you ever have the chance that you see it! 

-We learned a lot about Cambodia's history that I had no idea about and honestly they are such happy people for this shit they have been through.

a famous spot in Ta Phrom-(think Tomb Raider) 

I'll keep my opinion of Vietnam till I have actually left so I can decide what was worthy of telling! 

So there...a very very brief recap of my trip so far! 

Check out my Instagram for many more pictures and updates!
