In Thailand by Laura0 Comments

Since returning home from my trip people have been asking for tips and tricks. I figured to start I could break down what I spent and how I spent it in a nice little chart. Hopefully this helps some of you out – as always, I am here for questions and the like.

I woke up this morning to Noam toggling the air conditioning and saying, go back to sleep. I woke up again about an hour later and the mood was very much get up and go. It was a travel day for all of us, the boys were headed to Vang Vieng and I was headed to Bangkok, Beijing, and then New York.

Noam said that we should do whatever I wanted for my last day on the trip. The gesture was sweet in the sense of, let’s make sure you have an awesome last day. I wanted to go to the waterfalls again which was not an issue since everyone really wanted to go again anyway.

Today was purely awesome. Last night I went home early and the men went bowling. When they got home I was asleep and it must have been around two in the morning. Avi stumbled over to my bed and shook me awake to tell me some great fucking news.

Slow Boat Day Two and Luang Prabang

The slow boat day two was really nothing to write home about. We woke up early, ate breakfast, ordered lunch to go, and got our seats on the boat. We were told to arrive early because they would take the two boats that arrived and combine them into one. We had been warned about passengers having to stand or sit in the aisles so, naturally, we claimed our territory first thing.

Today was mostly a day reserved for travel and not much happened in the way of activities. We are at the point where we have silly jokes like how whenever the boys don’t like something I do they called me “Lowra.” They say, uh-oh Lowra is back.

Spending one week with the same two people can be a serious testament to the strength of your respective relationships. Spending every waking hour for one full week with the same two people – well its definitely more than a testament, that’s for sure. Today marks the start of our second full week together, after which I am certain I will have no words.
