Exploring the rest of the country until my flight departs on August 4th. I've been looking around Phang Nga Bay, Phuket province, Suratthani, and Nakhon Si Tamarat. Soon I will be headed to the islands for the Half Moon Festival. Couchsurfing is a lifesaver.
What will I be doing?
Staying in Dallas and Austin to catch up with some friends and some good old-fashioned American culture while I await the results of the National Geographic Glimpse Correspondents Program and the return of my Japanese pension. If all goes according to plan, I should depart for New Zealand mid-October.
