These are the places and spaces I spend my days here.
I really can’t complain much – there’s an endless supply of tea and snacks and smiles.

This is a little of what my day back in Bangkok looked like.
I’m staying at this really quite (cheap and clean) hostel outside the city (*When I say quiet, I mean it too. I think I’m the only guest here).
The trip from Koh Tao (ferry –> bus –> train –> tuktuk) was very long and exhausting, but I still managed to spend most of my day traveling around and seeing new streets in Bangkok. So far, I’m really impressed by this city. It is full of far more surprises than I imagined and I am glad to be back for a little bit longer.
3 days and 2 nights in Asheville is just what I needed. I came home more inspired, encouraged, and restored than ever.
We laughed a lot, we didn’t sleep much, and most of all, we ate. And we ate really well and stayed full. I feel that I’m still stuffed from the weekend!
I know with a certain level of conviction that there are two places on earth that I belong — New Zealand and Asheville — and I cannot see that ever changing.
More photos coming soon!
How I define good right now:
+ Time with the ones I love
+ Food from Venable
+ Climbing rock walls and up to the roof of buildings
+ My boxy leather jacket
+ Finishing projects
+ Planning for the future (i.e. future classes)
+ Waking up with your entire house at 7 to pancakes and snuggles on a Tuesday
+ Cool, not cold weather
+ Sharp, red wine
+ Conversations over Chinese food, on foot, in the library, on the phone. . .
