Thousands of photos
9 Countries: (UK, South Africa, Turkey, Israel, Jordan, India, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam)
Countless airplanes, buses, trains, boats, taxis, auto-rickshaws, cycle-rickshaws, bike-rickshaws, tuk-tuks, bicycles, motorcycles and steps in my own shoes
Amazing new friends from all over the world
Memories & stories to last a life-time
4 tubes of toothpaste
3 pairs of sunglasses
2 trips to the doctor (1 dentist & 1 doctor)
A suspected case of bedbugs, too many mosquito bites & the itch to travel more…
Basically? One hell of a trip!
I’m home, although home seems relative. I arrived back to the States a few days ago, the re-entry has been somewhat jarring. My parents gave me some not-so-good news about their health and if that wasn’t enough I was bit by a dog, in the face, and had to have 8 stitches. Yes, being in Colorado has been more precarious then gallivanting in third world countries but at least I didn’t have to ask if the needles were clean or for someone to translate that I’m allergic to penicillin.
As one wise woman said “when you are on the dance floor, just go on dancing!” Please stay tuned, more stories and photos from around SE Asia.
Welcome home Jods! I thoroughly enjoyed your blog and got to live vicariously through your travels. I can’t tell you how proud I am of your bravery to travel the world by yourself and your willingness to meet new people and experience the cultures of our amazing globe.
P.S. I was bit by a dog in the face when I was about 3 years old. He was eating and I pulled his tail, guess you could say I deserved it, but to this day, I hate Schnauzers! Hope you are okay!
Thanks Babe! Keep reading, I still have 10 weeks to catch up on:)
