DAY EIGHT

 I'm just in love with today. it was the greatest.

It started off with someone asking ME for directions on the train and I was actually able to answer it  (I was so proud and felt like a local). Then me and @deficientvegan had the tastiest acai bowl with raw donuts, mango passion fruit cheezecake, AND THE BEST DAM SALTED CARAMEL SLICE EVER. Like can I just live at Combi please?! PLUS 4 people came up to me that recognized me from my insta there and it seriously just made my day meeting them and giving them a hug! Then after some exploring we went to the dinner meet up I hosted and SO MANY PPL ACTUALLY CAME! Ah it was just such an incredible night of heartfelt conversations, belly aching laughter, and new friendships! Plus I ate like so much yummy food... Curry, pad Thai, dumplings, sticky date pudding, soy ice cream, blueberry cheesecake, and a mint choc cake.... I blogged my whole day so get ready for some fun and yummy footage in a few days

And tonight I had this moment where I looked around me, at all the beautiful people, and all the love I felt and I just thought, I wouldn't be here at this dinner in this city, on this continent right now if it weren't for this account. I am so ridiculously grateful to everything and everyone this Instagram account has brought me. Truly truly so grateful .

on my way home, there was the most talented singer performing for change outside of the train station, singing Ed Sheeran. I stopped and sat there with my eyes closed and listened to his beautiful voice drift in and out of my awareness, and I began to think about my life and how truly blessed I am to have met the people I have in my life, to have had the experiences I've lived in my life, to have made the mistakes I've made in my life, to have had the childhood that I had, and to be living the life that I am living right now.
