The music that characterized the events and cities I passed through in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. (Title links to song.)
Album Title Goes Here was my album of choice during a sleepless overnight journey from Bangkok to South Thailand.
When I get together with these two girls our conversations gain such momentum that we almost believe we can solve every problem and save the world.
A song that played a hundred times in a reggae bar in Koh Pha Ngan and is forever embedded in my memories of yet another sleepless night.
A song for all the people—local and foreigners—that intrigued me during this journey, and whose stories I wanted to know.
A song for navigating through the deep blue Gulf of Thailand, while trying to guard off seasickness, and watching flying fish pass by.
On the one night we went out in Cambodia, we learned that this song is big in Korea. A song for dancing near temples (with a ton of South Korean tourists) at a club creatively called, “Temple.” (Note sarcasm.) Honorable mention: “Gentleman” by Psy.
A song for being lost in Angkor Wat, once my posse dispersed in search for good, tourist-less pictures.
A 4th of July tune—with an explicit music video—to pass time near a sleepy river in Kampot, South Cambodia.
Another tune to pass even more time near that same peaceful river.
Free the Universe was the album I listened to most during this trip and I still can’t get enough.
