Coming Home to Tom Bihn (with updated product review)
September 25, 2012
After 77 days of traveling, on the day of my return, which I scheduled on my father’s birthday, I felt a lot like it was my own birthday too. I had never seen my Tom Bihn in person but was really excited to meet him. I had known in the early days of my trip that upon my return, my Tom Bihn would be waiting for me at home.
Lo and behold, I received a big box from Tom Bihn (a Seattle-based company specializing in travel bags and briefcases), waiting to be hastily ripped / cut / broken open; I would be like a child on Christmas morning.
Introducing the Tom Bihn Tri-Star.
Nam nam nam
Got back from a roughly 5-day trip to Vietnam last Wednesday, July 20 at around 4:30 a.m.
The trip was largely a food trip, with us just wishing we had more stomach space to accommodate all the food we could order. From spring rolls & pho to carpaccio, wine & cheese, steak & pasta to cupcakes & pumpkin pie to more pho and more carpaccio, wine & cheese, eats at Vietnam seemed a lot cheaper compared to higher end restos in Manila, Philippines. Though their cupcakes and alcohol weren’t cheap.
Anyway, the trip has firmed up my resolve to pursue relatively cheap and extended travel, and it reignited the passion in me to do globe-trotting while re-creating Tim Ferris’ 4-Hour Workweek.
We shall see.
I’ll be documenting my plans and progress here.
It starts with my declaration to the world. Just as I declared in Mui Ne.
I intend to fully achieve my lifestyle of choice within 2 years.
