bittersweet

in anticipation of going home in just 3 days, i have recruited my travelling friends to help me brainstorm things we will not miss about southeast asia.. we’ve come up with quite a few. of course, it isn’t all bad, so we also made a lengthy list of things we will definitely miss a lot. a shoutout to sarah, anna, and ryan for their contributions. without further ado and in no particular order…

things we will not miss about travelling southeast asia:

-squatting toilets, no tissues, bad plumbing, and still having to pay to use the bathroom
-getting ripped off
-sweating
-night buses
-scary scooter traffic
-asian style showers
-people trying to sell us things constantly
-sweating
-roosters and other loud barnyard animals that live outside guesthouses
-bad wifi
-more sweating

things we will miss about travelling southeast asia:

-new adventures everyday
-tuktuks
-fresh and cheap fruit shakes
-meeting awesome locals and fellow travellers
-beach parties
-fire dancers
-easy airport security
-jungle trekking
-day markets
-night markets
-palm trees
-general lack of rules and safety precautions
-delicious street food
-cheap beer
-“only in asia” random moments
-gorgeous weather
-thai massages
-hanging out with elephants, monkeys, tigers, dolphins, sea turtles, and other epic animals
-not having to tip
-crystal clear water
-living the good life !
