Bernard went home and arranged to send her six hundred dollar a month so that she could go to school and start a new life. On the advice of a friend, he reluctantly hired a Thai private detective agency to check Roxie out before he went back to Thailand to claim his bride.
The agency found out that she was still working the bars and that five other men were sending her money every month for exactly the same reasons Bernard was sending her money. Continue reading →
Are you afraid of running out of money while traveling? Are you nervous your daily budget is not enough? Do you dread the idea of calling home (mom or dad) to ask for extra money?
Travel costs are unexpected, and predicting how much you are going to spend every day is virtually impossible. When I went to Southeast Asia, I had a set budget of $35/day. After arriving, I realized I could spend less, so I readjusted my budget to $25/day and pushed my flight back so that I could stay longer. Big mistake. While living on $25/day was possible in theory, actually doing it was much harder. Things kept popping up, and maintaining my $25/day budget became impossible. I fell for scams (there are tons of scams to fall for). I spent money I didn’t need because I didn’t know any better. I made an innocent mistake with my visa that cost me over $150. The list just goes on, but that wasn’t the worst part. The worst part was realizing I wasted over $300 before I even got on a plane. Continue reading →

There are listings and descriptions for different levels of hotels and restaurants in Kyoto, and general travel tips. There is cross-referencing everywhere, for example a page that’s describing a major attraction will tell you where to go in the book to find hotels in that area. By far, the best thing about this book was the information about transportation and transfers from airport to the city and back. In Chapter 5, I really enjoyed having some background on Kyoto people and their history.
Communication with Yasu was a pleasure, he surely knows every part of Kyoto and helps passionately and promptly” Continue reading →
