Things lost on the road

Wrapping up a year of travel, I thought I would make a list of things I have lost this year.

  • four toenails, thanks to Rinjani
  • my iPod
  • my swimming costume
  • a beanie
  • my consumption of meat
  • my Australian identity (After spending four years living outside of Sydney and a good part of this year in Vietnam, I now feel a whole lot more Vietnamese than Australian.)
  • a fear of squat toilets and peeing in nature (When we were waiting for our bus to Danang, I asked a woman where the bathroom was. She brought me to the side of the road and we peed on the grass along with three other Vietnamese women, while a bus pulled up next to us.)
  • caring about what i look like (Though this may come back upon arriving back in Europe. Right now I am too used to wearing the same thing everyday and not wearing any makeup.)
