Real Adventure Talk

Our last day in Hanoi (today) was spent walking EVERYWHERE. We walked from the old quarter to the french quarter to a whole different quarter which I don’t remember the name of. The government quarter? Anyway, we walked there. It was basically a last look through of the city before we left. Now the real…

I Like Eating

Can I just say, I love Vietnamese food. I really do. My dad asked me which cuisine I preferred , Malaysian or Vietnamese, and Vietnamese takes the cake, no question. (Sorry Malaysians. Too spicy for my taste) Everything is so fragrant and filled with flavor and cilantro and all things awesome. Plus, I’m really not…

Ha Long Hey

Ever been to a place that is so absolutely picturesque that it looks exactly like the postcard? Well, Ha Long Bay is one of those places. If you ever get an opportunity to get on a boat and sail across Ha Long Bay, do it. Don’t even think twice. Well we spent about two days…

Touchdown: Vietnam

Vietnam, we have arrived! After a night of packing/no sleep, a three hour flight, a two hour flight, and  a whole bunch of motorcycles later, we touchdown in busy Hanoi. First impressions? Crossing the road alone is an adventure. The people are pretty great though. The people we’ve encountered have all been really nice and…

‘Til Next Time

So I’m going through pictures on Facebook when I realize that I never officially ended this blog. In fact, I think I left a lot of things out, mainly Berlin, my birthday and the days leading up to my departure. But you don’t need to hear those. All you need to know, dear reader, if…

Thrills and solitary adventures.

Yes, yes, yes, I realize now that posts have become a monthly thing. So much so that I have lost a bit of my following (which was probably made up mostly of family. Is that cause for abandonment? Lol no I’m joking kbye…). And even despite my promises that I’ll try posting more frequently and…

You Silly Dog.

I can’t believe I won’t be there to say goodbye to you. I can’t believe you won’t be there when I get back. Just last week I was telling my host about you and how I was hoping and praying that you’d stay around just a few more months for me. But I can’t ask…

Osterferien

Don’t hate me. Yes, yes, I know it’s been a while. Contrary to popular belief, I don’t have life-changing experiences everyday. I mostly just go to school. Just like you. Except, you know, in a different language. Although life-changing experiences do happen. ;) SO. Let’s get going. In Germany, or at least, in Baden-Württemburg, there…

Frühling kommt!!

Spring is coming!! It’s getting warmer (hopefully it will stay that way) and the birds are chirping, and I’m wearing less layers. WOO! And with spring comes new beginnings. :) So after some (a lot) gentle pushing (shoving) by my mother, I have started going to classes in the 11th grade (I used to be…

Tschüss, bis Morgen, schlaf gut!

So one of my friends left for home  today. I mean like back to his home country, and it’s got me thinking. Which is a really bad thing right now. But I’ll get to that later, because I have a story to tell. :D So me and my friend were on our way to our…

Faschingsferien

Yes, yes, I know it’s been awhile. Usually, long intervals between posts mean there’s really nothing especially special going on. But this time, I don’t know. I started writing the last one about the midstay camp we had during the last week of february, but I never got around to finishing it. I’ll give an…
