CHANELLE!!! Here comes another birthday post where I tell the world how great you are and that anyone who doesn't know you is seriously missing out. First of all, congrats on the vehicle upgrade; I'm not sure this truck would have gotten you very far. Also, I can't believe I'm missing another birthday, but I hope you have a fantastic day and I can't wait to come visit so that I can stop using such old photos of us. You're an amazing person who I'm so lucky to have as a best friend. Thanks for keeping in contact even though we're so far apart (although I'm honestly not sure the world is ready for us to see each other in person again). If anything, us being so far apart makes our stories seem way funnier than they probably are haha. Thanks for always brightening my day and basically my whole life with your amazing ambitions, your beautiful hair, and your fiery personality. I love and miss you so much. Have an awesome birthday and hopefully I'll see you before the next one!! #oldtownreunion#itshappening#2019
What an awesome Sunday! I can't believe my time in Cambodia is almost at an end. It's been beyond encouraging having my family here and getting to show them where I've been living for the past year and a half. Having my blood family and my Cambodian family cross paths has been such a wonderful experience! #oneweektogo#timeflies#worshipteamforlife#fambamvacay#travelingbean2018
Never underestimate the power of a successful self-care day. There's nothing like a relaxing massage followed a delicious meal. (I'm living it up because I know I won't be able to afford any of this in the UK haha) #selfcare#lunchforone#redsnapperpie#travelingbean2018
I'm getting so much reading done on this trip! (I also love that this place has reusable metal straws!) Actual Solo Travel Trip #1 : As well as knowing where the airport, nearest hospital, and embassy are, also make sure you know where to get your phone fixed beforehand. My battery sizzled up and died on me last night, and luckily I was already back at the hotel, but I spent the better part of last night and this morning and this afternoon having a minor (read: major) meltdown. I got my phone fixed and it's all good now, but being alone in a foreign country without your primary means of communication is the most stressful thing ever! #doyourresearch#dontfreakout#unlikeme#kualalumpur#solotrip#travelingbean2018
After much confusion, I'm proud to say that I managed to find the two rather large towers that define the city skyline. Don't know how I missed them the first time around 😅 Also, I made it in time for the fountain show!
Questionable Solo Travel Tip #1 : If you don't know where you're going, choose another tourist who looks wholesome and kind and follow them. Either you find what you're looking for; you find something different, but equally interesting; or you realize you shouldn't be following strangers and use Google Maps instead. #dontworrymom#klccpark#petronastwintowers#suriaklcc#kualalumpur#solotrip#travelingbean2018
