Joshua Tree National Park was the second park visited on #NgoDangNormalRoadTrip, the mission to visit all 59 US National Parks in memory of my late brother. He had always wanted to see every park, so I set out on a west coast road trip starting in California.
This trip to Bali was canceled and rescheduled three times. I was able to redeem my airline voucher up to a year after the first change, so of course I waited until the last minute to finalize these plans. It was so late that I ended up traveling by myself, and on a very very low budget.
First “solo travel” and first “ballin’ on a budget” trip and it turned out better than most my trips with my closest loved ones and spending lavishly.
