Welcome Back to Rainy Season

Rainy season in Southeast Asia is back in full force. 

Bring on the relentless downpours, hurricane winds, bone-shaking thunder, terrifyingly close lightning, jungle-mould feet, and frogs that sound like cows. 

This isn't my first rainy-season rodeo. Last year for the entire May to December season, I was in Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam. I witnessed mother nature's true destruction with flooding, landslides, typhoons, and the creation of unexpected lakes.

I doubt whoever cleared the land was intending to make a pond...

I've always said that off-season is the best season for travel: You experience a more local life that isn't 'picture perfect', there are less tourists and crowds, you have to maintain optimism and positivity when you're freezing cold/soaking wet/boiling hot, and you meet other people just as passionate for making the most of their time, rain or shine. 

Experiences during off-season storms are some of my most memorable adventures. It's trudging through a blizzard or wading through knee-high floods that really make a destination an adventure... I'll try to remind myself of this next time I'm hiding inside from loud thunder.
