Inspiration March 27 >> Life In Limbo

One day, I’ll take this road trip. Bucket list!

Technology is making us all flaky and that’s not great. The text message examples they show are way too recognizable.

Some words all girls should practice saying: “Stop interrupting me.” ,“I just said that.”,“No explanation needed.”

As I’m gearing up for my next big trip, I liked a lot of this contrarian travel advice. Some parts I didn’t agree with, but overall he has the right idea.

How good do these “Middle Eastern nachos” look?!?!

An Instagram account with pretty pictures of books I want to read: yes.

I thought this story about Bro Orange was absolutely absurd and hilarious.

From me: I’m almost finished my time in Korea, so I finished the last of my seasonal videos. If you’re interested in what life in Busan looked like this winter and spring, check it out here!

I’ve been feeling really gross this week – some (awful) combination of yellow dust, stress, and for the past couple of days what felt like the flu. Thankfully, I’m on the mend because I leave Korea on Wednesday! Even though I’ve been looking forward to my trip and planning everything for months now, it still feels like it crept up on me somehow. But everything has been given away or packed up, and it’s time to go. I’ll be travelling through Laos, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia before doing my yoga teacher training in northern India. I get home to Canada late July. I’m excited for all of it, but of course nervous too. Great safe adventure #2! Here we go.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Probably the coolest notebook of all time – if you put it in the microwave, you get a fresh unused notebook.

Tara’s words and photos about her time in Bali were beautiful.

I absolutely loved this article about opting out of certain things and how freeing it can be.

Since I really liked the book, I was excited to watch the Paper Towns movie trailer which just came out this week.

I think my friends and I are going to go to Osheaga this year and the lineup so far looks great!

I watched all of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt this week (only 13 episodes!) and it was so clever and funny that I miss it already. Sadly the next season won’t be out for a year.

This post about packing for a yoga teacher training in India was helpful.

I really liked this layered profile of Kendrick Lamar.

It’s been a good week. I got my passport back with my India visa inside! I gave away a lot of stuff and pared down my clothes even more. I booked a flight to Laos and a place to stay with my sister in Chiang Mai. Basically, things are slowly coming together like I knew they would but worried they wouldn’t. I fly out in 12 days (*maniacal laughter*) which is terrifying and so exciting. Have an absolutely wonderful weekend! xo

I loved this list of what Goodreads staff are currently reading.

Rule of thumb: if I cried at it, it’s going in the inspiration post for the week. This story (and pictures) got me.

This app donates to charity with every mile you run! Amazing.

Listening to a lot of this, this and this.

I liked this minimalist packing list.

This post is making me so excited for my upcoming trip to Thailand (including Koh Tao!).

Some excellent ideas on this list of things every travel girl needs, and styled beautifully.

If I was in nest mode right now instead of “throw away all your stuff and travel” mode, I would be making my own version of this gorgeous weaving first.

I’ve been pinning some pretty things lately.

Well, things are ramping up around here. I have long to-do lists, boxes and bags half-packed, and an apartment getting emptier every day. I’m getting addicted to throwing things away and excited about sorting things into piles. In short: I’m starting to feel ready to travel! The big news from this week is that my sister decided to come to Thailand with me, which is making an already-exciting trip that much better. :)

For anyone kind enough to follow along in this space regularly, I want to let you know that from now on, posting will be a little more intermittent than it has been this past year. I won’t be posting regularly on Monday/Wednesday/Friday while I’m travelling, though I hope to post about once a week from the road. I will be trying to update Instagram pretty often so you can follow me there @lifeinlimboblog if you’re interested. Thank you so much for staying with me as this blog evolves, I truly appreciate it. Have an awesome weekend!

Inspiration March 6 >> Life In Limbo

A dreamy itinerary for one month in Thailand.

I didn’t watch the Oscars, but I loved the intro for the production design award.

I loved the photography project You Are My Wild a couple years ago, where a group of photographers took photos of their children. The group has started a new project called Because They Don’t Last Long to capture moments, and it looks awesome.

I want to go to New Orleans really badly.

There’s some wisdom in these 34 truths.

A girl I went to high school with is now a designer and architecture student in New York, and she posted her portfolio on Facebook this week. I was really blown away by her work, and especially loved her site analysis of the Toronto Entertainment District and interpretation of the Snow Queen fairytale.

As always, obsessed with Hugh Forte’s incredible photography.

I cried a little at this movie trailer for Twinsters.

Tough love: I regret to inform you that you simply aren’t doing your best.

It’s been a long week, but such a good one too. I applied for my India visa, chatted with lots of loved ones, planned my trip and got some really exciting news. I am tired and have a lot to do over the next few weeks but I’m jazzed about all of it. I hope you have an amazing weekend!
