First time flying, no problem. First time setting foot in another country, also, no problem. First time living a completely different culture every day for the next five weeks? At first, I thought this would be a problem. How would I have known if I was mentally ready for this adventure of a lifetime? I wasn’t, but that is what made the trip much more worthwhile than any other summer day. I learned a whole new culture through hearing stories from the locals, eating food I have never tasted before (like Luwak Coffee, a pricey and unique drink) , setting foot on one of the cleanest beaches I have laid eyes on, wearing a sarong, visiting temples, experiencing first hand alternative medicine, and making some awesome friends. At first I would say living a completely different culture for the first time is a problem, but now, no problem.
