It’s undeniably, absolutely, positively, irrevocably, über fantastically for real.
I’m actually going to Southeast Asia.
Like FOR REAL for real.
Okay, I’ll never ever type fo rizzle again.
Can someone slap me? I’m still in a state of wanderlust stricken shock.
Yesterday I just happened to be perusing Skyscanner to see how much a flight might cost to Thailand in November when I planned to go.
But it was still months away and I was just checking to see how much I would have to save for the flight.
Then I spotted a price tag of $550.
Ya’ gotta’ be kiddin’ me right?!
So…I toyed with the idea a bit of just buying the ticket, then thought I’d give myself a night to humor the thought.
Except I couldn’t get it out of my head!
It was so cheap, like an early birthday present.
And I would land on my Birthday.
Well, before work today I was cleaning the apartment where a friend has let me crash on his couch and I found myself again on the website staring at the ticket.
The next thing I knew I received a confirmation of my purchase.
“Wait, what just happened?”
Yep, it was like I became possessed by the Travel Gods and they forced me to purchase the ticket.
But no, it was me. I purchased the ticket on a whim. And I know with the feeling in my stomach and the insatiable urge to scream out in happiness it was right.

Sometimes all it takes is 20 seconds of insane courage, which usually leads to something amazing.
And it just has.
I will be headed to Thailand starting November 13th and landing on my birthday November 15th. From there? I don’t know. All I know is it’ll be amazing.
- Found the ticket on Skyscanner.com
- Flying out of Los Angeles (LAX) on a 19hr flight which includes a stop over in Taiwan.
- The average price of tickets from Washington D.C. and New Orleans was around $850, so I decided to take the train across again which will shave $300 off the ticket price.
Which lead to this half-naked happy dance:
