Have you ever returned to a location that held a meaningful place in your mind from your childhood or possibly a past vacation? And when you returned to this flawless destination things didn't quite live up to the grand expectations that have been built up in your mind? Well, if you have then you might have an idea of what our overall experience the second time around in South East Asia had in store for us.
The theme to our trip became simply - I'm trying to make the best out of this. After experiencing such a perfect maiden exploration of this foreign land, reason alone dictated that a repeat of such luck was foolish to assume. The combination of many set backs and this unrealistic expectation culminated in a less then ideal journey. Would I say it was a bad trip… No. There were some great parts as well as some shitty ones. But hey, life in general comes with good and bad. We made some amazing memories and learned some lessons as well.
