A Story of the Jungle, Villages, and LEECHES

A travel blog entry by jasonandgaryn


... them out and we kept walking. A little white later, I felt more in my belly button and took out the biggest leech I had seen yet, which was followed by blood, another leech, and lots more blood. I was so disgusted that at this point, the views didn't even seem worth it anymore. I continued the last part of the day's trek while holding my walking stick in one hand and applying pressure to the tissue on my belly button with the other hand.

A travel blog entry by regal_tang


Feeling pretty rested, we jumped on a tuk tuk that took us back to the bus station where we would end up spending Valentines on a pretty crammed bus or two! The journey was a long one, although we thankfully stopped for food half way. With not much on the menu (in English anyway!) we opted for a safe bowl of noodle soup each. It was at this romantic moment, surrounded by flies, we mutually decided we'd had enough of this particular dish! On the final leg of the journey, Pete’s ...
