This girl! And a selfie to prove it! Yup. Monday I finally got on the phone with someone in Malaysia who speaks decent english and he informed me that they actually have been trying to get me the phone for a few days over break, but UPSI hasn’t been letting them in? Typical. So I could come to the store and pick it up on Tuesday. Then he … Continue reading Who Has A Phone (Finally?)
Easy. It’s a tie between my best friend and tacos. Continue reading What Do I Miss Most From Home?
So we catch a plane at about noon from Vientiane and get to Bangkok around 2PM. Then we take a tuk-tuk, looking for a hostel some british chick told us about and we end up at Khao San road, which is apparently the center of the city and all the craziness. The roads are closed. The streets are packed with people. We are released in … Continue reading I’m Just Gonna Post Everything About Bangkok
Our flight to Bangkok was going from the Lao capital, Vientiane so we had to leave Dee Dee and Luangprabang for a long bus ride. We shelled out for the VIP bus and thank god we did, because we got a quick look at the non-VIP buses which were pretty much air con-less school busses crammed full of people. And we spent 8 hours on … Continue reading Vientiane For A Night
So we woke up very keen on renting motorbikes and taking them to the famous waterfall we had been hearing all about. Of course, we get to the motorbike place and they let us know that it’s gonna be 160,000 kip to rent it for the day. So that’s like roughly $20, and considering we paid like $2 a day in Chiang Mai for bikes, … Continue reading Road Trippin’ And Waterfalls
Unfortunately, after finding Austin so miraculously, we had to leave him because apparently Huay Xai has jack shit to do and there is one motorbike you can rent in the whole town and it was in the shop. So Lenny, Sarah, and I decided to take the 2 day slow boat down the Mae Pong river to Luangprabang. We bought a large supply of food … Continue reading I’m On A Boat
The bus left Chiang Mai at 8AM and we were headed to Chiang Khong (the Thai border city). So we arrive about 1PM at Chiang Khong with little to no idea of how exactly to cross an international border. Turns out you take a tuk-tuk! It also turns out that you need way more US dollars than 3 students from Malaysia carry on them. We … Continue reading Making It To Lao
So we had been hearing about this lake outside the city, and by this point Lenny, Me, Manu and John Lennon all had scooters. So us plus Carly and Sarah who were the passengers were planning on hitting up this lake on Monday. So we’re up relatively early, thinking might as well get a head start. The first thing that happens is that Lenny takes … Continue reading Road Tripping: Lake Day
Sunday was the day that everyone left. Kara, Celeste, and Terese were taking their own path down Thailand and hitting up the islands. Austin left about noon to go up farther north and investigate some national park. So I rented a scooter. Yes, Typical Brenna. And yes, I know I was cheating on Rody, and yes I am harboring some guilt from that. But I also miss … Continue reading The Day Everyone Left
I would just like to say that I am writing these blog post (to be uploaded later) on the porch of our bungalow in Laos, in the jungle, surrounded by cats and chickens. So day 3 (is it day 3?) was made for the elephants! It was Sarah, Kara, Lenny, and I doing the elephants. We were picked up in a minibus at 8:30 in … Continue reading Elephants, Oh My!
