The Hunt for the Monk
This is a story about a Buddhist monk who got me wasted, hit on my mom, and gave me crabs.
He is very dear to my heart.
There are a few things that every adventurer secretly hopes they will find. Among those are: the title to a yacht, an unexplored cave, an unattended dog sled, and a treasure hunt. Tawny and I were lucky enough to get one of these. I’m sorry to say, it wasn’t the yacht.
It was the treasure hunt.
Now most people might delete the following email if they found it in their inbox. Disregarding it for some type of Russian Bride scheme. Tawny and I, however, are travel bloggers and adventurers. This is the kind of thing we live for. Not to mention for anyone in the entertainment industry, the ultimate litmus test for success is the number of your crazy obsessed fans. This was pretty much the jackpot.
The email read:
