good morning. i just woke up in Thailand.
i can hear tuk tuk’s racing by. kids. and the ocean crashing. so it is a pretty good morning to invite you to come on a trip with me.
travel is a very important part of me. of my career. of my inspiration. it’s my aim to take a month off each year, to see the world. it’s also my aim to say yes to things even when they dont make sense. to say yes to things and figure things out later. it always works out. we are just too high strung in america, and i thank my lucky stars i have been able to get away to see other cultures or else – i know for a fact – i would be so high strung, worries about lists, in a constant state of t0-do, really truly not living the way you are supposed to.
you do know we only have one life, right? sounds really cliche. saying something is cliche is even cliche. but its the truth. it takes, getting away and just becoming putty to really put things in perspective. its one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself, in my opinion.
so it was an easy yes, when Bobby Earle - a southern californian photographer who looks like he should be on a package selling badass – asked me if i wanted to come along to cambodia for his annual RPTE trip. i said yes before i even knew details. i said yes because i know what taking a trip to a new place does for me. I – along with Nick Radford (who shot my sisters wedding – woo!) are the “highlighted artists” of the trip. basically it means we are going and we want you to join us!
basically this is a chance to see a beautiful country, among other creatives, slow down, and be impacted in ways you dont expect.
SO HERE IS THE DEAL:
you should obviously be going.
DATES: February 2-9th.
WHERE: we will be spending most of our time in SIEM REAP. (the NW’ish corner of Cambodia)
WHO: Nick, Bobby, Myself – AND 20 of you!
WHAT: no proper itinerary besides playing with monkeys, hiking into jungles, seeing culture, hanging out, eating good meals, seeing ruins.
DOLLAS: 1700 accommodation, all entrances to any activities. (basically everything except meals (hella cheap) and anything you want to buy yourself. (tax deductible photogs)
so there you have it.
being that I am traveling with a best friend right now. i cant tell you ow incredible it is to share an experience with someone internationally. its forever bonding. its like being in teh same cabon at sumer camp, but like times 900.
you will never regret putting aside your time at home to go see another part of the world. meet people. be changed. get rejuvenated. its the best thing ever.
i cant even imagine how much fun were going to have. waking up every day to an adventure. and having friends there. what the what.
you can read ALL THE PROPER INFO and SIGN UP here on Bobby’s RPTE site.
you can see IMAGES of previous trips HERE.
learn about us HIGHLIGHTED ARTISTS here.
i really hope you clear a week, say frick yea, and come. this is considerably one of the cheapest international trips you will ever take. there are so many people out there that I am internet friends with but never really get to see face to face. this could be an easy yes to actually see each other. exploring cambodia. LETS DO IT!!
