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
