Melbourne, Victoria, Australia (2)

For anyone that actually enjoyed the feature last month where I provided all my Facebook status updates, it has been over a month since I began my journey. So here are my status updates from month 2. Enjoy.

January 19-February 18

Gibby Davis got to visit his happy place this morning. He went to Princess Lagoon.
January 19 at 12:21am

Gibby Davis has seen a lot of gorgeous women with complete schmucks. You know what that gives him? Hope.
January 19 at 12:40am

Gibby Davis is currently juggling how to charge his iPod, computer, camera 1, camera 2, camera 3 and run the fan off of 1 plug-in. Should've brought a power bar.
January 20 at 10:11pm

Gibby Davis thinks it's ludicris that you can use wireless internet on your computer while in the washroom, but yet, you still need to manually flush the toilet (pour water down the tubes). Thailand.
January 20 at 10:31pm

Gibby Davis had a wave go over camera 1 (D300) and it was fine, then I take camera 3 (underwater) underwater and it dies. Sweet, sweet, irony. Camera 3 is currently on life support. The next few days will be crucial.
January 21 at 8:37pm

Gibby Davis thinks Camera 3 (underwater) is officially dead. RIP Oylmpus

February 1 at 12:14am

Gibby Davis thinks that if you are going to sell things on the street in Phuket, you better be good at dealing with rejection. Especially from me.
February 1 at 7:06am

Gibby Davis learned a new lesson about driving in Thailand. Drivers should always be on the left side of the street, unless you are driving the wrong way down a one-way street, in which case you should be on the right side of the street.
February 1 at 8:58pm

Gibby Davis has seen a lot of things on Patong that he cannot unsee. The rule should be that if you have several 'natural skin folds' that block the sun then maybe you shouldn't be topless because you're still going to get tan lines.
February 1 at 11:26pm

Gibby Davis is finished typing from his beach-side perch for the evening. BKK tomorrow.

February 5 at 9:41pm

February 6 at 9:33am
