1- Wild- This is one of the million or so movies I watched on my long flight back from Bangkok. It’s powerful and awesome and makes you feel both terribly sad and incredibly motivated all at the same time. Be prepared to cry at least 3 times. Maybe try not to do it on a plane…

2- GoPro Hero 4- This little camera was one of my favorite travel tech necessities, I was able to grab a ton of fun footage and photos underwater, or in other situations where I wouldn’t want to mess up my camera or phone! The only downside, it’s constantly wide-angle-y, but it’s better than nothing!

3- SPF 50+- What I wore every single day in Thailand. Just an FYI: you can wear sunscreen and get tan at the same time. Don’t look like an old leathery grandma at 35- protect your skin!

4- Girl with the Dragon Tattoo- I know I am WAY behind on this one, but I read/finished this book during my time in Thailand and I am obsessed. It’s definitely one of those books that you completely immerse yourself in and feel super weird and out of it when you finish the last page.

5- Mango Sticky Rice- I miss this amazing Thai dessert too much already. Sticky rice, fresh mango, coconut milk, and little crispy rice thingies (not a real technical explanation) on top. It sounds like a strange combo- but trust me, it’s addicting. (Photo from @juliannaleemurphy)
