Aun Yong

I'm sitting in Logan airport, enjoying some ice water. I love ice. I miss it so much when I'm in foreign lands. Last year for my birthday celebration in Barcelona, Scott gave me a bag of ice.

I have roughly 24 hours of travel in front of me. Boston to NY to Hong Kong to Bangkok. I'm going to the other side of the world. A month in Thailand and Laos with two dear friends, a grand adventure!

I've never really traveled someplace where I don't speak the language, unless London counts. It makes me nervous to think that I won't be able to chat with the locals. That is one of my favorite parts of traveling. It also makes me nervous that the signs will all be in squiggles.

Also, the malaria meds. Ugh.

But the very idea of Asia is fascinating to me. I know nearly nothing about what to expect, and that makes it even better. Buddhists! Monkeys! Exciting fruits!

Flight to NYC leaving soon, no more free wifi. I'll write when I can.

Yay! The return of the travelogue. I was hoping for just this. :)
