Flash Forward Friday: Jakarta

Hey all! It’s once again Friday, which gives me another opportunity to give you all a sneak peak into my current happenings.

Hey all! It’s once again Friday, which means that I get another opportunity to provide a sneak peek of my current adventures.

This really just means that, by the time you read about a cool place or experience, I’m already onto some other adventure. This is kind of a bummer for me, because I’m always absolutely itching to share with everyone as soon as possible. Read More
