My minimalism journey // part one  Posted on 07/01/2015
In 2009, I left the United States for a life abroad. I culled down my already pared down possessions without knowing when I’d be back. I haven’t been back. When I arrived in Thailand, I didn’t have much. I ignorantly made...

Fish out of water bloggers: expat interview series #1  Posted on 06/26/2015
Moving to Cambodia has gotten the blood flowing in both directions (is that good?) and it has gotten me thinking about other expat bloggers and the community we live in both on and off line. As a result, I’ve decided to do a carry-on...

Getting lost is NOT fun.  Posted on 06/09/2015
“Get lost” is an insult you hurl at guys trying to pick you up at bars. Like when one of the visiting college rugby players says to you, “I’d love to pour wine on your belly and drink from it.” But not when...

What they never told you about bra shopping in Thailand  Posted on 05/26/2015
Ah, the joys of womanhood, eh? Every one of us ladies can remember our first visit from Uncle Payne and Auntie Flo. Or that time, you didn’t know you were going to have it and how you decided to wear light pink pants that day. Or...

On morning routines, goals and habits  Posted on 05/20/2015
I’ve gotten good at consuming information on the web, of late, and I’m not sure if that is exactly something I should be proud of, but there it is. As a result, I’ve started to gain a clearer picture of what goals and...

Foods I love from Hawaii  Posted on 05/17/2015

(An expat reflects) here versus there…  Posted on 05/12/2015

Chinatown, Hawaii  Posted on 05/10/2015
Visiting Hawaii meant not only visiting memories, but places where those memories are contained. Chinatown is one such place. Honolulu’s is one of the oldest Chinatowns in America and probably is one of the smelliest. So, I find it...

    Hey dpcjsr,

    If you go to my blog tellthaiheart.com and go to CATEGORIES => you will see category for Ecuador...here is the link: http://tellthaiheart.com/category/ecuador/

    I wrote about my experiences and they were overall great but ultimately, I didn\'t feel like I fit in. I lived in Cuenca and worked for CEDEI which I highly recommend. Great people.

    Good luck! Spanish is easier for sure, but you cannot get by like you can here w/ English. Practice, practice! And as a male(?) your experiences are sure to be different. It\'s a beautiful country. Cheers.
