Traveling through South East Asia has been so amazing. I’ve met countless inspiring people, seen mindblowingly beautiful temples, beaches and waterfalls and have genuinely fallen in love with each country in a different way. Every place I’ve been so far has had something magical about it, something challenging and something funny. Some things I was not prepared for (see #1). Thankfully, I packed my sense of humor and I’m learning to adapt quickly.
Oh South East Asia, you’ve cultured me so…
I had a good, loving, laugh at all of these moments. Enjoy. And if you’re coming to Asia, be prepared.
1. The bum gun. Yep, that’s right. The name says all you need to know. Good luck. Ps. Toilet paper is not common here.
2. Signs like these. When you walk around Thailand, especially on the islands, there are little handwritten signs on everything with broken English. I find it absolutely charming- and hysterical.
3. Strange skincare. Coming out of years working in the cosmetic industry I thought I had seen it all…Nope! This is a new one. A snail shot mask?
4. “Toilets” that make you practice your squat skills. Thought you were going to skip your leg work out today? Think again. 😂
Then there’s the brilliant marketing.
