While in Ubud, Bali, I met Emilie through my friend, Melissa. I saw her sarong tied in a very cool way and asked her if she’d be willing to teach me on the Internet of course. I loved getting to know and hang with Emilie during my trip in Bali. It was so great to see Melissa have such good people in her life. thank you emmie for teaching me your sarong skills and I can’t wait to show off my new amazing leather bag that you designed. peaches and bananas xo
On my adventure, I traveled to Bali for 10 days. My good friend from growing up, Melissa, lives in Ubud and hosted me for the majority of my trip. She of course offered to do an FWB lesson. It was so nice to be with an old friend in a new place and reflect on our childhoods as well as rediscover our friendship in new ways. Check out how to open a coconut and watch Emilie, Melissa’s gf do it in a minute thirty. http://youtu.be/heWprF278vs
Makasi Meliss! Much love!
While in Bangkok, my friend, Ethan, teaches me some Thai phrases. Ethan is currently teaching English in Thailand for a year. It was so nice to hang out and see a familiar face in such an unfamiliar place. We filmed this FWB in a park by the Chao Phraya River. Bangkok was a great first stop on my 35 day adventure. You can check out some of my pictures through Instagram. I promised my mom I would upload as much as possible so she knows I’m ok and she can have a vicarious journey.
***I’m sad that I can’t edit my videos like I normally do but I bought the wrong converter 😦 I’ve learned that flexibility is key when traveling as well as going with the flow.
As you can see this is not an FWB lesson. FWB is on hiatus due to moving, the flu and preparing to for a month of travel. Instead please watch this video montage I made as part of the application process to attend “The Bold Academy.” It was really fun to make and it really proved how powerful the year of 2012 was for me. Unfortunately, I am not able to attend The Bold Academy due to finances but I think my coming adventures will help me get to where I am supposed to be.
As most of you know, I’ve recently moved out of NYC. On December 6th, I’m leaving to spend 35 days in Southeast Asia. I’ll be traveling to Thailand, Bali and Laos. I will be traveling by myself and meeting up with friends along the way. I’m super excited for this experience because this was one of my goals in 2012- Figure out how to take a long trip by myself to an awesome part of the world. On January 10th, I land in SF to reunite with my favorite city and my new home. So here goes nothing. I’m excited to bring Friendships With Benefits abroad and can’t wait to meet my new friends who will soon be my teachers. Stay tuned. 🙂
