Just Don’t Fall in Love

When I first started traveling, several of my friends and family told me that they thought I’d meet someone on my travels. I must admit, I’ve hoped for the same thing. It’s tricky, though. I feel like I have a better chance of meeting someone compatible with me, maybe a fellow traveler on the road, than I would if I were settled in one city. However, I don’t want to be so distracted with someone that I give up my dreams, travels, and passions. I need someone who will encourage me in my pursuits, just as I encourage them.

Villages in Thailand

Our group tour hiked through the jungles in the northern Thailand with some incredible views! Then we stayed at a local family’s house. It was definitely some rough conditions. Sleeping in the same room with 15 people, on a thin mattress, and roasters crowing made it a restless night.

Overcoming Fears? Maybe Not…

On the first day of the REI Adventures tour in Thailand, we visited a temple and night market. By day two, we were zip lining and hiking. I was terrified of the conditions while zip lining and found out that two months later, a Canadian man fell to his death on those lines.

Day 49: Mama Bear

About 20 minutes into my hike, I was close to a large boulder when I saw a large black bear about 25 feet away me, to the left of the boulder. Panicked, I gasped, turned around, and started heading back down. Then I realized I’m not supposed to do that and I’m supposed to scare him. I turned around, hoping he wasn’t charging me.
