TEMPLES

Let’s start off by saying the beds at this hostel suckkkkk. First of all, the actual bed must be wrapped in saran wrap and they just put a fitted sheet over that because every time you move in the bed it makes so much noise! Basically like rubbing a bunch of plastic bags together.  And…

Hole in One!

We took a tuk tuk ride to the airport this morning, which required going over some pretttyyy steep hills… wasn’t sure our tuk tuk was going to make it at times. We ended up pulling up to the smallest airport I’ve ever seen and it was still under construction. We got there just under 2hrs…
