For my last FWB while on my #35dayadventure, I learned how to count to 5 in 5 different languages from my new friend, Currie. I met Currie through Sofia when we all met up in Phuket towards the end of our trip. I definitely continued practicing counting for the rest of my trip but can’t claim I know all the numbers. Traveling made me realize how grateful I am to have English as my first language but really wanting to become more fluent in other languages. I guess I just have to keep traveling and practicing to do that;)
After riding on the back of the motorbike for 4 weeks all over Southeast Asia, it was my turn to drive. My good friend Sofia insisted that this be her lesson even though I was obviously hesitant. She learned in Myanmar where she currently lives and works as a teacher. Sof was confident that I could do it.
I’m happy to report that my skills improved immensely and the next day I drove for about 30 min on the roads of Phuket in the rain.
Thanks Sof for being an amazing teacher and encouraging me even when I was beyond nervous. You are the best travel buddy a girl could ask for!!! xo
