I have been on sand dunes before, but never when there was wind blowing. The six of us are having a hay day getting sand in our every pore, coating every surface, feeling and looking like schnitzels. It was one of those days I will fondly remember. Probably the most unadulterated fun since our Jordan adventures. The scenery was beautiful, but that's not even why. It was because it was uncomfortable enough to remember, but too much fun to care. And of course, it’s the company that makes or breaks a good time.
We kept running into the same people at different times. It’s like that here in SEA….You meet someone in say Laos and you might not have the same itinerary
So in the end, it turns out, I am not as weird/na´ve/trusting as I thought. This is just the way the backpackers’ world appears to work. Thankfully, I feel quite at home in it. As I did in the spiffy resort in Hoi An :) In summary, I am glad to know that I broadened my horizon in such a way, leaving me with options. Got a stable income? Sweet, I can splurge. Living off of savings? No problem, I can rough it too. In fact, I think I will always want to travel like this in the future for at least parts of any trip, never mind the available budget. It’s just so much more fun. I rarely felt this alive.
