Asia Trip 2006

2006. My first great sojourn abroad alone. I was a college student at the time, on my way to spend a semester studying abroad in Thailand. What could be more harmless, right?

It was a wonderful 5 month semester, one that included visits to 4 countries, countless bus rides, 5 train rides, numerous boats, a coup, 7 simultaneous bombings, some lessons in Thai language and a surprise wedding!

All that said, you’ve stumbled upon the oldest posts on this site. They date way back to very early days of me having a blog, which, at the time, was primarily focused on keeping in touch with friends and family. Fair warning, these posts are unedited. My writing has come a very, very long way since then (it reads a bit like a journal) and many lack images like you’re used to seeing around this site.

That said, I’ve also included some links to newer posts I’ve written about some of these instances.

So, without further ado, I give you a journal of my 2006 trip in Asia!
