This isn't a travel blog.

Hello! I’m Vicky Lai. I’ve been traveling the world and living out of one bag for the past year.

It’s not always easy or fun, but I’d say it’s been worth it. This site is my own personal brand of how-to-do-life-for-dummies that I’ll give to my successors one day. This is real life, complete with all its failed experiments, things I wish I knew last year, and unsuccessful attempts to find coffee at 4am in god-forsaken corners of the world. Sometimes, something amazing happens.
