3 Country Southeast Asia Itinerary (And What Really Happened)

My Planned Itinerary: Cambodia (3/25 – 3/30) Bangkok (3/30-4/2) Koh Phangan (4/2 – 4/8) TBD (4/8 – 4/15)

I’m actually pretty proud of myself for venturing out on my own and discovering one of my new favorite cites (Chang Mai, Thailand).

Koh Phangan (April 2 – 9)
Spent almost a week on an island with white beaches and turquoise water. It was heaven!

Bangkok (April 9 – 10)
I spent just 1 day in Bangkok to change out my clothes from Braden’s place

About Kailee Crawford

I'm an Oregon-born travel addict living in New York making the most of my vacation days. I started this travel blog to keep track of my bucket list and it's morphed into a journal of my adventures and recommendations for things to see, do, eat and drink. My hope is that I can help other travelers find their way. I want to try everything once and to live a life without regrets or missed opportunities. I call my philosophy on life the "the death bed philosophy" - I want to be laying in my death bed reflecting on all of the things I've done and seen in this world, not the things I wished I had done. It's not meant to be morbid, just a reminder to take risks, go out of your comfort zone and live life to the fullest. ♫♫♫♫♫ "You were only waiting for this moment to be free" --- "Blackbird" by The Beatles This quote is undoubtedly my favorite quote because it's a reminder of the infinite opportunities available to us. That in each moment there is an opportunity to find true happiness, and a sense of freedom when you're doing what you love. Freedom to explore, to create, to improve oneself, and to find fulfillment even during the 9 to 5 grind. ♫♫♫♫♫ I'm an incredibly pensive person with a wide variety of interests. In addition to traveling, my guilty pleasures include wine, food, music, art, languages and history. I grew up a nerd, watching The History Channel and reading The Lord of the Rings with my Dad. I'm driven by my pursuit of knowledge and growth and most passionate when I'm able to be creative. ♫♫♫♫♫
