Heading back East. I stop in Utah, for the second time, to visit the Southwest region with 2 more National Parks: Bryce Canyon and Zion.Read more
Nevada- a land full of fun. I visit Lake Tahoe during the sleepy season, take a detour to Death Valley and spend Halloween in Las Vegas.Read more
I showed up with no plans. I climbed a mountain, scuba dived when I was immobile on land, and got chased by wild orangutans.Read more
I wrap up my visit in California with 2 more National Parks and a visit to the Eastern Sierras/ Mammoth. I venture beyond barriers and find solitude among mountains, almost die, and find serenity under the milky way grounded in a hot spring. Oh! and I get inspired for my 3rd tattoo (which I get later in TX).
This is my second time to CA and my focus is on NorCal. I return in 2019 and focus on the South.

I remember all the white crosses along the highway marking the fatalities- 127 already for 2018, I counted them as I drove. […]Read more
I take a day trip from Hanoi to Halong Bay. I spend an entire day on the bay and even kayak to a secret lagoon. I even visit a fishing village and see the BIGGEST fish ever- they capture and feed it in preparation for a family celebration, like a huge wedding.Read more
