Another spring break, another trip back to my mom’s house here in Papua New Guinea. I’m currently in the capital, Port Moresby and got back from 4 days at Doini Island in Millen Bay Provence yesterday morning. Not even kidding when I say that it was p a r a d i s e. Here’s a summary of my trip in journal entries and pictures. Enjoy!

We just got to the beach (Doini Island) via helicopter. It was mesmerizing. I’m gonna go strip then jump straight into the ocean. We’ve got the whole, crystal blue-watered island all to ourselves… there isn’t a single other guest here. I am so at peace and happy.
Two whole days on the beach and by the pool were exactly what I needed. I went back to Malaysia for fall break this year, as always, it was so good to be home and see all my family and especially my cousins who are all growing up so fast *wipes away tear*.
This time we decided to take a little three day trip to Penang (which is also where my grandma lives) and spent two nights at the Lone Pine Hotel. It was SUCH a nice place to be and made me realize how much I actually miss Malaysia, sometimes I really wish I lived there haha.
Our last and my favorite stop on this trip was the town of Monterosso in Cinque Terre, Italy. The beach-town vibe of this place, the houses in the hills and the clear blue ocean water was just what I needed to finish my summer break and I had such an amazing time.
We drove through Pisa on our way from Florence to Monterosso, and decided to stop at the leaning tower, pretty much just to take a picture and to see it lol (offered to help like 5 people attempting to make the tower look like it was leaning on them). It wasn’t that great to be honest… glad I saw it though haha.
I want to travel
But I don’t think anyone understands
I want to wander at four in the morning, through the streets of Moscow
I want to wake up on a roof,
In the middle of New Delhi
Stand on a balcony and sip tea, without clothes, on top of Sweden
Roam through a bazaar in Istanbul
Cry because I am free, beneath Germany
Kiss an elder on her cheeks in Czech
Smoke a cigarette while laying in the tub in the Alps
Read a book in a small cafe around Portugal
Swim through the reefs of New Zealand
Wash my hair in a hostel of England
Dance with the laughing people of Africa
Feed sushi to another in Tokyo
I want to make love to you,
Deep within Spain
I want to travel
