Hostel Lock down

Catching up on videos from China

Micah and I are on hostel lock down in Yogya, Indonesia as we work our way through a travel bug. It's either from food, heat stroke or a combination of both. We rode 20 miles on rented bikes in 90 degree heat to the Prambanan ruins yesterday. The last 24hrs have been spent breaking fevers, sleeping and listening to the mosque call to prayer from a speaker outside our window. On the bright side, I've had lots of time to work on video edits. We're long past China, but here are a few little gems from the first few weeks of our trip.

Tomorrow, we're hopping on a bus to a volcano trek that starts at 3am to Gunung Bromo and then continuing onto Bali. Wish a quick a speedy recovery!


I break down over laundry after a sink washing in Beijing. (Laundry is commonly a stressful situation for me-even with a washer and dryer.)

I came across my "Prince Chow Mein" at the Longman Caves in China. A girl's gotta kiss a lotta frogs...

Watch as we make our way through ancient, Pingyoa, China

Micah receives and official Chinese name from a monk in Pingyoa.

Use the laundry service at the guesthouses, its cheap, and much easier, or at least you will be able to have that service in Thailand and a few other countries.

Hi So sorry you have been sick. We hope you are both feeling better and that that doesn't happen again. Loved your movies but I was sad to see Joanie crying. You should send your laundry out. They do it cheap in those countries!!!!

Hope you break those fevers!

Ok! So I just NOW watched the laundry breakdown video and, of course, I'm cracking up! Micah - when something like that happens, find some Kit Kat somewhere around there and give it to her. I promise it works! JJ - you're so funny! I LOVE YOU! :D
