First Week back in the states….

Its official I have been back for a full week. The jetlag is almost non existent and my 7 day body cleanse is done. :) Its been great to be back and catch up with friends. School started yesterday and I started my last first day of graduate school. I graduate in four months. I am so so so excited. As fun as it has been to be back, I miss Asia and traveling around. I miss waking up in the morning and heading out with Leslie on our daily adventure. I had so much fun this summer backpacking around Asia for 6 weeks and meeting so many great people. The memories are going to last a lifetime. Here are a few of my favorite spots this summer….

Kerala…God’s own country. This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. Who would have ever guessed it would be in India

My favorite thing about Vietnam was being a millionaire. The exchange rate was 19,000 dung to one American dollar. Leslie is a multi millionaire here.
