I thought I’d post a list of all the places I visited and stayed during my travels in case anyone was interested or looking for recommendations. I had so much fun on the other side of the world it feels strange to just reel off everywhere I visited and everywhere I stayed, but anyway, here we go:

– Yoo Yen Pen Sook
