Little Girl, Big Trip: Phuket, Thailand

Well, here’s the finale. One last stop on my Southeast Asia world tour. 

I have to say, two days on this little island in the sun just wasn’t enough. The views are unforgettable and the memories are definitely keepers. The end of this trip was focused on three things: sun, scuba, and sea caves. And believe me, add this destination to your bucket list asap.

Passports ready? This last one is Phuket, Thailand. 

 

Gotta say, it’s good to be home. Here come a whole lot of egg whites, spin classes, and pre-semester shopping trips.

Little Girl, Big Trip: Singapore, Singapore

So close to the finish line. Aka, my next spin class. But until then…

Singapore brought rain, but it also brought this little thing called education. Our stay was packed full of company HQ visits that top the charts of the coolness scale. My inner workaholic was going wild. I’m talking pure fangirl at some stops.

While this skyline’s no New York, it’s definitely new to me.

Passports ready? This one’s Singapore.

Little Girl, Big Trip: Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

Good morning, Vietnam! Watched the first 20 minutes of that movie so the reference feels justified.

Well, friends, we’ve reached the part of my trip where I have to start re-wearing clothes and all I can think about is a salad. But have no fear, I’m in the land of Pho and I’ve never thrived more. 

This part of our trip has been the most educational. We’ve explored the Vietnam War from the other side of the world, floated down the Mekong River, and stocked up on fresh mango. From the Chu Chi Tunnels (where I got hit in the face with a live bat) to business visits with Nike and Intel, it’s been a lot to take in. Not to mention there are more scooters in this city than pictures of brunch on my camera roll. 

Passports ready? This one’s Ho Chi Minh city.

Little Girl, Big Trip: Bangkok, Thailand

This winter break, I packed my 40-pound suitcase and hit the air. 23 hours later it’s all Pad Thai and Buddhas and I’m living an Instagrammer’s dream. Welcome to my Southeast Asia Study Abroad series: Little Girl, Big Trip. Prepare for a whole lot of munching, temple lovin’, and travel vibes.

Passports ready? This one’s Bangkok, Thailand.
