Plans Change, Constantly!

Mar 19, 2011 No Comments

So I had planned to go to Sumatra after Java, the next island north in Indonesia. That was the plan but then things got complicated. I spent longer than expected in Jogja cause I was having so much fun. Which is always good! My visa would be running out in 12 days unless I stayed […]

My insane 19hr journey to Queenstown

I made friends with some Swedes during my Epic Lost World Caving Extravaganza (I just felt like capitalizing everything in that statement to make it seem more powerful).

I love weddings! Or at least, I love the open bar. And the getting dressed up. Although that might be slightly more complicated this time. My first weekend in New Zealand will be spent encompassed in a Hindu wedding. Never been to a Hindu wedding before. I’m going with Chris, a guy I’m staying with […]

Alright I love this phone. I really really do. Except for the phone part. Don’t get me wrong, the apps are amazing! Maps have changed my life. But talking on it? Suckface! And now to make matters doubly worse, since I’ve upgraded to their recent 4.1 software and I can’t unlock my phone. I was […]

OMG, I bought the ticket

Nov 03, 2010 1 Comment

So now it’s real! I’ve bought the plane ticket to take me to New Zealand. Leaves November 23rd, arrives of course 2 days later NZ. I decided not to go for a round-the-world ticket as I wanted to be as flexible in my destinations. But I will repeat what I read over and over, not […]
