Superbowl Monday!

Woke up at 5:30am to walk down to Hooters and watch the Superbowl starting at 6:30am in Thailand! One of the guys in our dorm room came with us (he’s from Texas). Overall, it was an fun game to watch! Only downside was we didn’t get to see any commercials 😭 instead during commercial breaks…

Sleepless in Bangkok

We made it!!! Days 1 and 2 merged together to create 48hrs of being awake (dozed a little on airplanes but that really doesn’t help once you’ve missed two full nights of sleep!) Our first flight was to Taiwan- 16hrs. Longest flight I’ve ever taken for sure. One fun thing was we were on a…
