From Chiang Mai To Penang


I actually wrote this post out weeks ago, but something stopped me from posting it for quite some time. In fact, you may have been wondering why it’s been a few weeks since my last update; well, there’s a good reason.

So this video actually started out as a regular vlog but some other emotions came up.
