Reminiscing Travel Moments 1

Sometimes looking back at pictures I've taken during my previous trips transfers me back in time. Whether I'm on a moving train, dozing-off....
... or going down a treacherous terrain, kicking dirt behind me....

Going down from Beomo of East Jawa, Indonesia.
... or on an open cart with dirt blowing into my face....

Hitching a ride to a bus station in Inle, Mynamar.
...or dressing up like a Tibetan Nepalese girl with a basket on my back... (Dafuq! What was I thinking?!)

They say it was to further appreciate the culture! Gahhahaha! Done this at Darjeeling, India.
.. or taking ridiculously angled shots of myself because no-one was there to take it for me!

Why was I leaning down?? Arghhh!! Some where in Angkor Wat of Cambodia.
...or eating fried GRASSHOPPERS from the night markets of Bangkok, Thailand!

My face after crunching down a grasshopper was priceless! 
The "experience" could be played vividly in my mind as if I was reliving the moments. And then I had to wake-up, yearning for more moments, thus beginning to hate my mundane life. Hahaha

The lasting after-effects of travel are still obvious on my face. Gone is the almost perfect clear skin which I carefully tendered and now in its place a coarse, zit-infested calloused skin. (The woes of a woman where beautiful skin is queen) Did that slow me down from travelling?

No it did not but I do need to take extra care of my skin. Haha.

Patience Jard, one more month before I hit the skies again. :)

In the meantime, lemme see if I can weave some travel stories on this pathetic blog of mine. Till then, happy traveling peeps!
