Soundtrack: Girl, Put Your Record On by Corinne Bailey Rae
Okay I feel like a bit of a creep posting all these pictures (don't let the hand holding confuse you about our friendship) and an ode to one of my top people, but I've got to somehow document just how great it was having Miss Lisa as a my travel companion for the last 10 weeks. It all started ditching Peter's Nonprofit Management class for big cookies at Legend's Grille (mmm cookies sound good). The crazy idea of meeting up in Asia turned into a two and a half month party where we documented only a fraction of what we learned, who we met and all the adventures in between. I didn't know her all that well before our trip- our cookies and a handful of Skyped planning conversations while she was living in Taiwan. We had a few mutual friends so I knew she couldn't be too crazy. Turns out she is crazy; but the good kind. The kind that you want next to you on a bus and the beach as well as in meeting with NGO officials and touring sites. As you can see from the pictures, we hit 4 countries in about as many outfits and had a blast. We laughed (hysterically sometimes), we cried (just once... damn you Carrie Underwood for bringing out my inner female). Through hospital runs and toxic hostels, til real life (read: full-time job and actual responsibilities) do us part. I'm going through withdrawals... Miss you Lisa!
