11. Through my blog I met a Canadian guy. We met face to face at Burning Man 2013 then spent the next 2 months hitchhiking and couchsurfing across the Western United States and Canada. 12. Each time I spend more than 2 weeks in a country, I get a tattoo which says “Buy the ticket” in that language. So far I have English, Thai, Korean, Filipino, Hindi, Malay and Vietnamese. I hope to cover my entire back in country tattoos! 14. I held a small Vietnamese child still so she could stop being sick and sleep during our 12 hour public bus ride from Laos to Hanoi, Vietnam.
