Man, Today has been long and I lost an hour traveling, so it's even earlier than I'm used to, but I'm just beat!! My morning started at like 430am, had to get to the airport, which was about a 45 minute drive. The hotel (and pretty much everyone I talked to) said to get to... Continue Reading →
Things I’ve learned about Thailand
In true Laura style, I didn't do a whole lot of research before I set out to Thailand. In fact, the only reason I had a hotel in Bangkok long before I arrived is because a friend had told me about the Elephant Nature Park and how it gets booked up quickly, so I had to book... Continue Reading →
My thoughts on traveling….
As I sit by the pool today I'm reminiscing on all my travels thus far, and the few remaining days I have left. I have also been thinking about my previous trips and adventures and how they have brought me here. I enjoy the solitude of traveling on my own. No pressure, no compromise, just... Continue Reading →

Time to hang out with some elephants!!
I feel the need to address my rock hard bed, or more realistically, my sleeping-on-a-pile-of-2x4s bed. It was super hard. And that is coming from someone who sleeps on the floor is the bed is too soft. So I woke up with a sore hip. I never got hot water in my shower today, and... Continue Reading →
Voyage to Bangkok
My trip to get to Bangkok was over 20 hours of travel, starting with my quick trip to Seattle for a work training, then back to SFO to catch my Cathay Pacific flight to Hong Kong. I decided to treat myself on this trip, so I bumped myself up to Premium Economy. Essentially this is... Continue Reading →
