It’s all over and I think we can all agree that October was full of treats. Looking back over my Instagram account from the past month, nothing is sweeter than the 1 sq. inch memories tucked away on the screen.
I set off to explore the bustling streets of Yangon, seeking to understand the deeper curiosities of the country of Myanmar. I found a country so unafraid to be itself despite its darker past, and yet it was in those crowded streets I discovered some gems about life and about myself.
Throughout my trip, I spent my birthday trying delicious new foods (and reaffirming my love for curries) while soaking in as many ancient sights as I could before I turned a year older. In the midst of all the history around me, aging another year didn’t seem as bad.
Mostly this month I reflected and I grew. I had some upheavals to deal with that have never quite happened before in my travels and in the face of unsteadiness, I became more grounded than ever.
I came back with greater insight (and a terrible case of bronchitis and tonsillitis) that leads me into November ready to explore more and delve further in. First into the blankets as I’m not quite healed yet. But after that, to delve further into this crazy journey I set out on, be it in Taipei or borders beyond. Hello, November. You are my next adventure!
