Dark and slightly wet we set out on a bus for the long haul. 10 hours of what was supposed to be watching movies and sleeping turned into bonding time. About half of us ventured downstairs on the bus for some drinking games. In the last 48 hours I had only slept for 6 hours so I chose to sleep. 2 hours into the road trip I woke up to the laughter and loud noises from below.
Let me introduce you to something known as buyer’s remorse. If you don’t know of the term, I’m certain you have experienced it. Buyer’s remorse is that feeling of regret after a purchase; whether it’s a new car, the latest iPhone, the wrong type of salad dressing, or even an article of fast fashion that was already kicked out of style before you left the store, you have surely experienced it at some point. In fact, Skelton and Allwood (2017) found that a vast majority of adults (82%) have experienced this at least once in their life.

Being the final crew to arrive in Bangkok on the Wednesday (wheels touching the ground at 11:50 pm), my two friends, Krystal, Tye, and I unfortunately didn’t take to much of an advantage of the Bangkok night life.
The first question I get when I tell people I travel alone is, “Isn’t that dangerous?” I follow by asking them if they ever go anywhere alone. Isn’t that dangerous?
One of the great things about joining a tour group is the known fact that you are about to share so much with a handful of people that you just met. This calls for everything from sharing experiences, stories, to beds and toilets!
Two days ago I woke up in Costa Rica, ready to start the Costa Rica Explorer tour. I’ve been on one LBW tour before, and the group I was with felt like my family from day one and I was unsure if it would be the same for this trip…
Once upon a time, many many years ago, my mom passed me a Life Before Work pamphlet she had received from a friend. Flash forward at least 7 years later, and I'm finally about to embark on my very FIRST tour with them!
It’s no wonder Thailand is called the “Land of Smiles”. The locals are so welcoming and friendly while the tourists, also beaming with smiles, look so happy and relaxed. A place with such positive vibes, it makes the perfect destination to celebrate special moments with your loved ones.
In four days, I've experienced two distinct personalities of Vietnam on the Life Before Work Vietnam Discovery Tour. The group has stayed busy weaving through vibrating streets, gorging on authentic Vietnamese BBQ in back alleys and embracing all aspects of culture offered to us by the welcoming company in Hanoi and Sa Pa.
