19 months in Ho Chi Minh City – Lifestyle and affordability

So a year and a half later, I've decided to post an update on my life here in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. At this point it's the country I've lived in the longest! I am genuinely surprised at this fact, and I'm even more surprised that I've just signed on to complete another year at my job. When I first arrived I did not expect to live here longer than six months, but here I am! I can explain the reasons behind this decision in another post as it’s more personal, but this one will mostly be about my lifestyle and the cost of living.

My rough budget for living in Prague, Czech Republic.

***Very late post, but I like to have these for reference in the future! Before I started traveling, I never knew how much cheaper life abroad could be. I've grown up in the San Francisco/Bay Area, and it's not a... Continue Reading →

7 Things I loved about my life in Thailand.

How I was able to start my traveling journey.

I'm not particularly special. I'm not wealthy. I don't have a bunch of awesome connections or hook ups (aside from ones I've made along the way). And nothing has really been handed to me. Things have just happened in such... Continue Reading →
