Paradise Found: Exploring Lan Ha Bay

I drew in a deep breath, and held it there. My eyes opened and I gazed up at the overhanging limestone cliff above. Exhaling slowly, I chalked up once more and readied myself for the ensuing battle.

For a fleeting moment, I wondered why I do this to myself.

The Secret Beach at Cat Ba

Real quick update while it’s still fresh. 

Last night, I decided over drinks that I’d head over to Cat Ba Island today to see Vietnam’s famous Ha Long Bay and Lan Ha Bay. 

Ha Long Bay is a UNESCO World heritage site with massive limestone tower karst Continue Reading →

Hanoi and love and I 

Hanoi. 

It’s been less than 72 hours since I arrived in this crazy wild city, and I already love it here.

When I first arrived, I was intimidated by the chaos. The madness made me want to cower in a corner into fetal position.

My retreat to Bangkok

Over the past two weeks, I’ve been in rock climbing heaven at Krabi and beaching/diving at Koh Tao. While in Koh Tao, I started to get island fever and decided last minute that I had to get out. I needed a few days to myself to relax, hold off on the activities, and get away from the craziness.

Day 1 was a success and already an adventure. I think I’m going to like this new lifestyle.Continue Reading →

Here I go

(Cue in epic Whitesnake song…now!)

I’m sitting in my seat and my flight is about to take off.

Things just got real.

What a blur and adventure these past few days have been.

The plan and why I’m not planning

The game plan for my SE Asia trip hasn’t changed much since my first blog post.

So far, I still only have a 1-way ticket to Bangkok plus a place booked for my first few nights. I have an idea of the countries I might want to hit, but not much else.

This lack of having a “concrete plan” is by design, of course. But it is starting to freak me out.
