Overcoming Anxiety & Choosing Honesty

Changing Tides

We have been absent for the past two weeks.

Or so it seems.Why? Basically, we’re getting our shit together and I’m doing my best not to crumble.

The month of February has been a bit of an overwhelming one. Our original plan when we left the US in October was to visit Bali and then move to Bangkok and get teaching jobs. We would settle in, save up, and visit as much of this side of the world as possible. After spending a month in Bangkok, we realized it wasn’t the right fit for right now. With no real backup plan other than to keep traveling, we moved to Taiwan. We’ve been rolling with the punches ever since.

Now, our 90 day Taiwan visa is coming to an end. We need to make some major decisions: either we move somewhere completely new or plan a trip out of the country and return.

NEW Category! If Postcards Could Talk

by Eric

Remember that episode when Homer Simpson sends a postcard to Marge saying: “WISH YOU WERE HER” – with a picture of a hot babe on the beach? Makes me laugh every time.  And it makes me wonder why there aren’t more silly postcards written like that in the world. 

So, I’ve collected real postcards from our trip to share with you. Instead of boring you with a message about the weather, I’m going to let the postcards speak for themselves, Homer-style.

If Postcards Could Talk: Wat Pho, Bangkok

Dear Friends,

1. Kids eat free Tuesday at IHOP.

2. It’s been tough finding work here in Bangkok. Fortunately I landed a job as a fashion designer for monks. What do you think – too orange?!

3. Screw this – I’m using the girl’s room. Damn monk privileges…

4. I’m training to become a monk. Not surprisingly, being a foreigner, it’s going to cost me extra. Can I borrow some money?

5. I’ve finally become a monk. Being a monk requires you to live off the generosity of others. So we’re selling orange robes as a fundraiser. Can I put you down for two?

Chips + nachos, Eric
