This is a Slow Blog

It's been a painfully long time since I've written a proper post on here. Sure, there have been some quick Instagram pics or a Facebook update, but no actual written blog posts in what, three weeks? I'm totally fine with it.

The chilled-out pace of this blog has evolved naturally since its conception. I'm a procrastinator by nature (despite what my college GPA says) so I knew if I ever started a blog, there would be no way I would be one of those bloggers that posts on the daily and has to take a picture of literally everything, 24/7, because "hold on, I have to get a photo for the blog!" No judgment whatsoever to bloggers who like to capture every moment... more power to you. I just frankly don't have the energy for that.

There have been a few times when I've felt like a slacker for the long time in between posts. Then I discovered that 'slow blogging' is actually A Thing.

For me, it means living these adventures as fully as possible. It means soaking it all in and enjoying everything without constantly writing the post about each moment in my head as it happens. It means not sitting in front of a screen while I'm experiencing some of the most beautiful places on earth and sharing good times and good company with the amazing people I meet.

So don't worry. I've got pictures, I've got stories, I've had some of the most incredible moments of my life out here, and I'll share them all in due time. For now, check out some recent photos below from New Year's in Pai, a trip to the mountains to donate clothing to school children, a flower farm in Samoans, and a stunningly beautiful 2-day slow boat journey down the Mekong River from Thailand to Lang Prabang, Loas.
