Southeast Asia is a partier's paradise - cheap beer, big beach parties, and backpackers galore. But I traveled it sober, and found a whole new adventure.
On this long solo travel journey of mine, I’m taking some time out to learn to meditate in Thailand, to sit with my fear and my racing mind and find a little stillness.
Traveling long-term is often a dream - but dreaming requires naps. After months on the go and on the road as a woman alone, I’m taking some time to beat travel burnout and rest.
Going to Suan Sati yoga retreat in Thailand, I was expecting delicious vegan food and lots of meditation, but I got so much more.
While Southeast Asia can be a big party destination for backpackers, I’m looking for more. Why I’m staying sober here and off to a yoga retreat in Thailand instead of a full moon party.
