A Humble Birthday Present Request

Tomorrow, October 7th, is my twenty-eighty birthday! Huzzah!!! I may or may not be on a seven hour bus ride to the central mountains of Vietnam, but we’ll deal with that later.

In the meantime, do you desire to give me a small gift? If so, here is my present request: please forward this website to one or two people who you think might enjoy it, or (let’s be practical) who can help make me rich and famous.

Thank you! I really do appreciate it :) We’re at nearly 100 readers a day, and my goal is exponential growth from now on!

Seven hour bus ride tomorrow or not, I know I will have a fantastic birthday. Why? Because I am on a journey around the world that is making me endlessly happy, and I have the chance to write until my fingers tingle… and to connect with YOU!

Here is a reminder of four ways to interact with this blog… because I LOVE when you interact.

1. Leave a comment by clicking the “Comments” link at the bottom of a specific article.

2. Click one of the reaction buttons to anonymously declare a post: beautiful, funny, interesting, weird, or useful

3. “Follow” or “Subscribe” to the blog by clicking the button in the middle of the right sidebar

4. Directly email me at: [email protected]

Many thanks, and and a happy October sixth to you!

(Note: These are old favorite photos from August in Tokyo and September in Bangkok… They are not from the small beach town in Vietnam where I currently am!)

Aaron said... I missed the post where you pet the tigers. I really liked tigers as a kid and even had a mural of one painted on my bedroom wall. Does it make them seem less exotic and wild now the you have touched them? Or does it make them even more cool, now that you have interacted with them up close and personal? Did you have to sign waivers or what not?

Lillie M. said... Hey Aaron! You should use the right sidebar to search for the "Tiger Temple" article from Bangkok, because it's got a ridiculous amount of shocking photos and facts.

In fact, tigers now seem MORE exotic and wild... I was totally terrified the whole time and just blindly followed what the officials told me to do. And no-- you don't have to sign a single waiver. Don't you love Developing World tourism? :D
