Goodbye Asia

We write this blog from Incheon International Airport in South Korea. Our last week and a half we spent most of our time lounging on beautiful beaches, snorkeling, seeing Muay Thai fights, and watching bootleg DVDs at the coolest hotel in Bangkok. It's been a difficult two weeks of perpetual vacationing, but we survived. We're sad to be leaving this great place, but looking forward to getting back home (no more squat toilets!).

We've taken away so much from these past three months. If nothing else, we now know how to say "hello" and "thank you" in 3 different languages. Our trip was a fun and challenging one and we would recommend Southeast Asia to anyone who has the itch to travel and the desire for a wonderful culture shock. 

After a week of recovering in Berkeley, we're heading to Europe and will continue blogging from there. Thanks for following us on our adventure this far.
