July 12, 2017 I’m writing this from my shwanky housing for the next 6 days, while I eat a gourmet lunch and listen to the waves crashing against the shore… translation: “I’m writing this from my 2007 Chevy Cobalt (its black if you must know) and rented through Turo which is awesome for car rentals and way cheaper than online car companies… as I eat a … Continue reading Dear Diary…
Hello from Sydney! FINALLY decent internet for more then 2 minutes at a time, woot! I arrived in Sydney last night from Malaysia, yep I know… probably pretty confusing for most of you as I was in Perth about 3 weeks ago, but to make a long (Lynee Long) story short… 1.
