Joey
Woohooo!!!!! Day 2!!
Joey's friend Joseph
Let’s goooooooooo!!!!!
‎Joey hat die Gruppe verlassen.
Joey
You in lab I’m guessing??
Joey's friend Joseph
Yeah man! Experiment day!
Joey's friend Melissa
Joey's friend Kayla
Joey
Been super exciting here! Got to meet our first host last night Jeniffer who was a comedian and an actress in Nigeria. Mel you may actually have seen some of her movies, I feel like I had haha. And today Paula and I are heading off to the second host who’s also in Berlin and staying there a few days until John arrives. Then I think he’s sending us to Czechia
It’s going super well! People are super excited to host us which we were a bit nervous about haha
Joey's friend Kayla
That’s so cool! Did she teach you any tips on how to be funny finally?
Have you had anything interesting to eat yet?
Joey
Haha she said that was a lost cause. I just have to settle for “better than Joe but still needs work”
Weve been eating fairly normal since we have 100 days of interesting eating ahead of us. Had sushi day twice pizza twice, a lot of Italian food. Panos and I split some Fondue at Jeniffers Swiss restaurant. Paula and I attempted to cook a carrot cake for her and Yvonne’s parents and failed miserably because I had to do the grocery shopping and all the stuff was in German so I couldn’t find much and what I thought I bought was also wrong. So instead of flower we had corn starch and things like that haha.
Joey's friend Melissa
That's awesome about Jeniffer! I will have to keep my eye out for one of her movies! And all that food sounds so delicious, except the cake 😂
Joey's friend Kayla
Lol that’s so funny about the cake! You should have said it was a Liberian delicacy or something
Joey
Paula was so disappointed because she was like I’ve made this a thousand times it’s so easy it’s gonna be great everyone will love it. And then I messed up the ingredients and we couldn’t measure so it was so bad haha
Oh 🐋
April 13
What’s everybody up to today? Any fun weekend plans?
Joey's friend Joseph
Today is a study day for me...I have *hopefully* my final 2 exams later this week
There’s a chance of going out tonight, but we’ll see
Joey
Like final final? So your almost done?
Joey's friend Joseph
Final just for this quarter. My thesis won’t be done till late July
June*
Joey
Gotcha that’s what I thought.
Today we’re finally going site seeing in Berlin with our host. Since we’ve been in the workshop all week we haven’t gotten a chance to see much.
Joey's friend Joseph
That’s awesome man! Berlin is such a cool city with crazy history
Joey's friend Kayla
I have a full day of racing with the high schoolers! Seeing some of them run around in trash bags to make weight gave me second hand anxiety 😩 do you have any landmarks you’re going to see for sure?
Joey's friend Melissa
I'm making some Liberian soup for my friend who just had a baby, I got to give him his middle name so I chose Melvin! 😁 That is awesome you are finally going to get to see Berlin! Will your host be able to take you around or will you be figuring it out on your own?
Joey's friend Joseph
Omg hahahaha you know I’m somehow back in the lightweight range again 🥺
Holy 🐄 naming someone is 🥜🥜🥜!!!
Joey
Yes we went all around. Saw a lot the wall, the stadium, the tower, köpenick and ate some currywurst. Pretty full day. And haha why Melvin??
Looks like John is coming in Sunday so we’re off to a slower start since he’s flying into Berlin we don’t want to leave but then gonna be heading south to Prague and Munich
Host #3 is in Lenggries but can’t see have us until Friday so gonna be doing some site seeing along the way
Joey's friend Melissa
Sounds like a busy but fun day! And that's great that John is finally getting to join! Did you try any German beer?? Since we know how much you love beer 😂
And Melvin because I feel like that is the boy name of Melissa! And it is also very adorkable 😊
Joey
Haha luckily Paula also hates beer so this is working well. Flo had us take a sip so we could say we tried it but other than that I’ve managed to stay away 😂
She says hello to everyone!
Joey's friend Joseph
Yooooo Paula hoe gaat het?!
Joey's friend Kayla
That’s great! Any good wines? What sights do you think you’ll hit up on your way?
April 14
Joey
Not sure. John in coming in from India tonight around 7:30 so we’ll make a plan for the next few days once he arrives and we see how up for travel/wanting to rest he’s feeling.
Paula and I are pretty ready to go out and explore but understand he may want some time to get adjusted
Any tips for a free day in Berlin?
You’ve all been here right? Or maybe not Kayla
Or Munich?
Joey's friend Kayla
I’ve been to Munich, they have a lot of great bakeries! I’ll look up the name and let you, apparently it is famous. We went to the castle that Sleeping Beauty is based off of, it’s a little outside of town though. They have a really nice trail next to it with a cool waterfall and a bridge that goes over it if it fits into your travel plans!
Joey
Ohhh going on some trails and getting to see a waterfall would be awesome! Apparently the host were staying at next is in the country side at the foot of the Alps which is gonna be awesome
Joey's friend Kayla
Yeah, it’s Neuschwanstein Castle! That’s really cool, do you think you’ll do any hiking in the Alps?
April 16
Joey
I hope to! That would be a blast! We’re finally on the move out of Berlin today. Rented the car and starting the road trip 🚗💨
Joey's friend Melissa
Nice!!! Where will ya'll be staying tonight?
Joey
We thought Munich but actually a friend of Jenny’s just messaged me and works late tonight and is super excited to meet us so offered to pick us up after his work. So maybe crashing with them tonight
Very up in the air
Joey's friend Joseph
So would that be back in Berlin still?
Joey
Nah In Bravaria south of Munich
Somewhere around here haha
Joey's friend Joseph
Ahhh cool haha
So you guys are on the road now?
Joey's friend Melissa
Who is going to be the first one to wreck the car?! My vote is Joey! 😂
Joey
Yep somewhere south of Leipzig
Nah Paula’s driving this whole one since it was too much to add an extra driver
So if anyone it’d be her haha
Joey's friend Joseph
Can you even drive stick hahaha
Or was that part of your training
Cause I sure can’t 🙃
Joey
I learned in Chile actually
I’m not very good though
But I had to learn there to drive the company cars
🤞😬😥 I’ll probably be ok
Joey's friend Joseph
Nice man I’m impressed
Joey
Found a Bene in Munich!
Joey's friend Joseph
Wassup Bene?!?
Joey
He just had me order the lung of a calf for dinner 😋
And he got me to drink a beer
Joey's friend Melissa
Ah yes, just an average meal, the lung of a calf.... 😂 and how did it taste?!
Joey
Joey's friend Melissa
Yessss for beer! 🍻 one of these days you are going to understand how amazing of a beverage it is
Joey
Lung and beer is a great combo actually
Joey's friend Joseph
Yeah man I just don’t think you’ve drunk enough beer to appreciate it
Joey's friend Kayla
Oh no!! Don’t cross over to the dark side, Joey! We need you over here on the good (wine) side 🥂 What’s the closest thing the lung tastes like?
April 17
Joey
Never would! With ya forever Kayla. Beer is gross and for adults that pretend to like it haha. But sometimes it’s ok in certain settings.
So we missed the final train out of the city tonight so we had to go back and are sleeping at Benes office on the floor tonight. We met him a few hours ago and are already best buds and having an impromptu sleepover haha
Joey's friend Joseph
Hahaha that’s freaking awesome man
April 18
Joey
Today’s morning run out in a small town in the foothills of the Bravarian Alps
Definitely a change in scenery from the city haha
Joey's friend Joseph
Dang that’s so pretty
Joey
Right or left?
We can’t decide
Joey's friend Kayla
That’s awesomene! Go right
Joey's friend Melissa
Now that's not a bad place for a morning run! And i vote left!! No idea why though lol
Joey
🏔🏔🏔👈
Our host said left to follow the river haha
This is Jenny and the gang were staying with
Joey's friend Melissa
Hi Jenny and the gang!! They seem like a cool bunch!
How did the hike turn out?
April 19
Joey
It was good we just did a small one cause Jenny wanted to pick us up and take us to a lake in the mountains
Headed out now to Innsbruck Austria to grab lunch and then a train off to Salzburg and then staying with a guy named Sebastian in Vienna.
Joey's friend Kayla
Ahh! So cool, are you going to take them out to travel shack?? Hahaha
Joey
Haha most likely! Get Paula to do a chuck norris shot like Mel
Ayyyy everyone in this chat has been there
You aren’t cultured if you haven’t been 😂😂😂
Joey's friend Kayla
Can’t have team east leave Vienna uncultured!
How long are you in Vienna for?
Joey
Haha haha exactly
Joey's friend Kayla
At least it’s not snowing this time
Joey
And I think quite a bit. At least threw Monday but maybe a few days more
We’re meeting Sebastian tonight and staying with him through Monday but then he has to work but may be sending us to another friend here
No real plan after Monday haha
Joey's friend Kayla
That’s cool! There’s so much to see there, has anyone else in your group been before?
Joey's friend Joseph
Oh my gosh hahaha
April 20
Joey
No one else just me. Going to the prater for a run with Sebastian’s flat mate and gonna ride the Ferris wheel by the chocolate museum we went to
Just talked with Nick (form peace corps) and hoping if we go south to stop by him in Macedonia if it works out
We’re back where I got you the German duck Mel hahaha
Joey's friend Melissa
Awwww 🦆❤🦆❤🦆
And that would be super sweet if you get to see Nick!
Are you going to make a chocolate bar again?! You were so good at it the first time 😂
Joey
Haha we may come back Monday, Meeting up with Sebastian to go rock climbing! I showed them the chocolate museum though.
I will still never understand how I was so bad at making the bar and all the kids had no problems
Joey's friend Joseph
Ah nice rock climbing! Is there a gym there or is it outdoors somewhere??
April 21
Joey
Indoors but the guy we’re staying with is getting his masters in alpine engineering or something like that and works as a guy that repels down and knocks off rocks so they don’t fall on cars on the road
Just spoke with our next host in Budapest and he sounds amazing and is sending us probably to an island off the coast of Croatia
So pumped
Yooo Mel do you still have the little journal on what to do for our Europe trip?
We have two free days in Vienna and could use some ideas!
Joey's friend Melissa
Croatia is going to be so awesome!! It is really beautiful there! Also, Budapest has been on my list to visit for awhile now so I'm super jealous you will be going there, you'll have to let us know all about it!
And no.... I dont have that journal anymore 😕 but Ali says visit the Danube tower and eat at the restaurant at the top there!
April 23
Joey
Throwback to our Europe trip haha @Joey's friend Melissa and @Joey's friend Kayla
Joey's friend Melissa
Nice!!! Which opera are you seeing this time?
Joey
Fidelio
Don’t know it 😬
Joey's friend Kayla
Ahh! You actually got seats this time?
That’s so cool! Did you figure out what this one is about?
Joey
Yes! ...for a little bit
Joey's friend Kayla
Lol do they have those tv screen translators like last time?
Joey
We went with Laura who’s Sebastian’s roommate and she’s a singer so she really wanted to get down there and spotted some empty ones which we got for like 20 minutes and then they made us go back to the standing place we had last time
Joey's friend Kayla
Ahh lol, I see. Maybe you’ll randomly run into another American this time!
Joey
And it was about a guy who got arrested but shouldn’t have been and so his wife dressed as a boy to work with a guy to free him
That’s what we were able to gather even with an Austrian to translate. She was just as confused as we were
Joey's friend Kayla
Sounds like a Florida man story
Joey
It does 😂😂😂
April 24
We just took this pic and Paula threw up the DG to block the sun hahaha she is one of us
Joey's friend Joseph
DG for lifeeee
Joey
Mel you’ll have to show Jen and Steve. We were rolling pigs tonight in Budapest hahaha
Joey's friend Melissa
No way that's so cool!! I haven't met anyone else who has had that game lol
Have you gotten to explore Budapest at all yet?
Joey
Yes doing that now
Joey's friend Melissa
Oooo very interesting... and where exactly is that??
April 25
Joey's friend Joseph
Yeah that looks cool, whatever it is haha
Joey's friend Kayla
Lol did you guys go anywhere else besides a garden last night?
Joey
Our host just gave us a list of places we should go since he ended up getting called into work and couldn’t meet until 1 am haha
So we hopped around a bunch
Going to the lock bridge and castles today
Joey's friend Kayla
That sounds fun! How much longer are you there for?
Joey
I think until Sunday maybe
We aren’t really too sure
Miki our host is going to Vienna tomorrow for a party but is letting us stay at his place to explore the city
Joey's friend Joseph
Have you gone to any of the baths yet??
Joey
Only in Vienna not Budapest yet. I think we’re going Saturday
April 26
Joey's friend Kayla
Are you guys going to do a beer bath or the hot springs/baths?
Joey
We just did the normal baths haha
Yooooo the new video is out!!!! So cool their making the weeks into like episodes now
April 27

Joey's friend Joseph
It’s freaking raining of course hahaha
But anyways I’m skipping this years kings day for the most part :( got a ton of work to do this weekend
😩
Joey
Boo you suck
😂😂😂
She found some orange
Joey's friend Joseph
Joey's friend Melissa
Wait, what is Kings day??
Joey
It’s a Dutch celebration of the birthday of the king of the NL
Where everyone goes crazy and parties all day in Orange
She doesn’t know why they all wear orange though hahaha
Joey's friend Melissa
Alright, that is awesome. I agree with Paula you need to go out and celebrate Joe!
Joey's friend Kayla
I feel like Joe’s version of “just having a beer and maybe a mimosa” will turn into blacking out and running away
Joey's friend Joseph
Pretty much the same hahaha
April 28
Joey
Made it to Zagreb! 🇭🇷🇭🇷🇭🇷
We only have 2 hours and no idea what to do haha
Joey's friend Kayla
Are you moving to your host at the island soon?
Joey
Heading actually to the girl who owns a lake house in a small town in Slovenia
Also this just happened
I payed down in front of some flowers and this guy ran over and handed me his dog for a pic hahaha
I love Croatia already
Joey's friend Kayla
Omg that puppy is so cute
Joey's friend Melissa
Next time can we get a picture of just the puppy because it's sooo adorable!! 😂
Joey
I made it better
April 29
Jed got his visa! He’s flying out tonight! Finally we’ll be a complete group of 6 haha
Joey's friend Joseph
Holy cow that took a long time!
Joey
Yeah he’ll jump in the start of week 4 😂
This is where we are today!
This place is incredible
Joey's friend Joseph
Holy that’s beautiful
Swim to the island!
Joey's friend Melissa
That is so exciting that the team is going to finally be complete!
What town/country are you in today??
April 30
Joey's friend Kayla
Yay! Glad everyone will be together 🎉
That literally looks like a post card 😍 if only someone was there with a puppy too hahaha
Joey
Even better at sunrise
Was hang out up there with some people from Ft. Collins @Joey's friend Melissa
Joey's friend Melissa
I forgot! I have totally been there before, Bled is an amazing area. Are you going to get to do any hiking?! There some really good hikes around there.
Joey
Yes hiking up to Vintgar Gorge in the rain right now haha
Joey's friend Melissa
Nice! That's a fun one, even with the rain lol
May 1
Joey
So today didn’t go as planned. We were supposed to be headed to Serbia to get John his visa and meet our next host. But then our next host called and said he was on his way to Ljubljana for the week 😬😬😬 so we’re hanging here for awhile
Part of the journey 🤷‍♂
So we decided to do a q and a haha you guys have any questions?? Can be anything. Funny? Logistical? Anything you wanna know we haven’t covered haha
Joey's friend Kayla
What’s been the most unexpected part of the trip? Has there been any awkward/funny social gaps between you and the host? What has been your favorite country so far and what country are you looking forward to the most?
Joey's friend Joseph
What’s the most meaningful thing/story/way of life a host has shared with you...so far?
Joey
Ohhh these are good!!
Joey's friend Melissa
If you had to pick a theme song for the trip so far, what would it be?
May 4
Joey
These guys make me feel tiny hahaha
Had to stand on a platform to be the same height
Joey's friend Joseph
Holy moly hahaha that dudes tall
Joey
For real haha.
Joey's friend Kayla
Almost as tall as I am
How tall is he really?
Joey
Cause I’m tall and look so small next to him
Haha yeah maybe almost Kayla’s height
Inch or so less
Joey's friend Joseph
“Cause I’m tall”
Lol
May 7
Joey's friend Melissa
So what has team east been up to lately?!
Joey
In Belgrade actually heading down to Macedonia tomorrow to stay with Nick 2 days and then off to Poland!
Learned a new game munchkin last night with Djordje we played 3 rounds it’s kinda like DnD but simplified. Paula couldn’t understand it at all, not one bit, but she won
Team west might be meeting up with Vicky Thursday I’m so excited
For Kayla and Joe, Nick is one of the guys Mel and I served with in Liberia who’s now serving in Macedonia. They also went to the same college haha
Joey's friend Joseph
Ahhh that’s cool that they’ll see Vicky! And awesome that you get to meet up with an old peace corps bud!
Joey's friend Melissa
That sounds like an awesome few days! You'll have to tell Nick hi for me, all his pictures on Facebook make it look like it's an amazing country!
May 8
Joey
Made it to Macedonia! 🇲🇰🇲🇰🇲🇰
Joey's friend Joseph
Wooo!
Woah there’s a lot going on in that picture...big ass mountain, but ass river, big ass city
Pretty neat scenery
Joey
Yeah there’s a lot going on here haha
I love their flag looks so cool
Joey's friend Kayla
That’s so beautiful! That’s so awesome about meeting up with Peace Corps people and West meeting up with Vicky! All the worlds colliding. Do you guys have any particular plans while staying there?
Joey
Yeah I really hope they get to see Vicky. And not really we’re crashing with him two nights. Hopefully just meet his host fam and people in the community
But right now just messing around in Skopje
Joey's friend Kayla
It looks like there’s a lot to do/fun place to be! You guys seem to have nice weather for the most part. Is it cold at all?
Joey
No it’s great today!!! Has been so cold and rainy the past few days. Today was a nice change of scenery
May 9
Breakfast with nick and his host parents
She retired yesterday and got this coffee set for a gift so we’re the first ones to use it haha
Neither speak English only Macedonian 🇲🇰
May 11
Joey's friend Kayla
Are they the first hosts who don’t speak any English? Have you learned any new phrases/words?
Joey
Haha yes nick taught us a few fun phrases. Don’t think I can repeat most of them though 😂
And yes but they aren’t really Yuujou hosts since we weren’t sent there. Just stopped by. So much freakin fun though
May 12
Look what I ran past on my morning run. Haha throwback to our Prague trip in December @Joey's friend Melissa @Joey's friend Kayla
Joey's friend Kayla
Ahh! So funny, now you know the code to get in though. You guys just couldn’t get enough of the travel shack and had to return?
Joey's friend Melissa
Ah yes, the place where only our bags slept 😂
May 13
Joey
We found the ice cream in a spiral cone thing place haha
Joey's friend Melissa
That's so cool! You should send some this way, it was so delicious! 😋
What else have ya'll been up to in Prague??
Joey
We climbed a tower across the river that over looks the whole city which was pretty cool. And then one of Paula’s friends joined us our first night here. So lots of partying that day haha. Then yesterday met up with this girl who was a friend of a friend of our host in Vienna we met breifly there. She lives in the Netherlands though so when we posted something about being in Prague she got a bus to come visit haha
We were supposed to meet the next host tonight but looks like it’s gonna be tomorrow and then hopefully moving out of Europe haha. Need to make some big moves soon if we’re gonna make it in 100 days
And haha I would send some but something makes me think ice cream wouldn’t travel to Liberia too well 😂
May 16
Joey's friend Kayla
Do you guys think you’ll get out of Europe with this next host?
Joey
Starting the trip to Moscow tonight!
Not technically all the way out of Europe but a big step haha
Joey's friend Kayla
That’s exciting! How long do you think you’ll be there for?
Joey
We’re meeting the host Wednesday Thursday so some point after that haha
I have a friend from peace corps Toby who will actually be in Moscow Friday-Sunday so hopefully get to see him at some point
Joey's friend Kayla
Ahh! That would be so cool, adding onto the peace corps friendship tour. Have you ever seen the video where the FSU comedian talks about his experience in Moscow?
I could see you accidentally getting mixed up in something like that lol
Joey
Yes hahaha that’d be so funny
The machine!
For anyone who hasn’t seen it lol
Hahaha does anyone in your group know any Russian?
Joey
Нет, но гугл переводчик делает!
I’ll translate that for you guys that don’t know Russian 😒
It says “No, but google translate does!”
Also @Joey's friend Melissa, Roger finally made it in one of the shots haha
Joey's friend Melissa
Aww Roger seems so happy getting to see the world!! ❤🦆
May 17
Thats fun you will get to meet up with Toby! And Kayla that video was hilarious 😂 I hope your Russia experience is exactly like that Joey haha
May 19
Joey
Finally making moves! After a week in Prague haha but ended up we’re going to Kharkiv in Ukraine
🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦
Joey's friend Kayla
Yay 🎉 at this point you could call yourself a resident of Prague. Any thing majorly different than when we visited?
Joey's friend Joseph
Why the big delay??
Joey
Haha well for one it wasn’t snowing 😂😂
And no Christmas markets haha
We went and climbed a tower over looking the whole city.
And it was finals week for the hosts. They were all in school and so we were supposed to meet Sunday but they had a surprise final Monday. So we then met Tuesday and we’re going to go to a friend in Russia but it ended up not working out so we met with another guy in Prague Vlad. Who is now sending us to his friend in Ukraine.
Totally understand them not being able to meet at first. It’d be so crazy if someone had shown up finals week at UF. “Wanna come join our all-nighter in the lib”
They were all super awesome and it was great hanging with them later in the week. Definitely a switch being sent to university students.
First people my age 😂
May 22
Hanging out with our buds in Ukraine 🇺🇦
Joey's friend Joseph
Man I just had dinner with Marija (from our ChemE class), she wants you to go to her fam in Macedonia!!!
Joey
Haha dude that would have been awesome but like 2 weeks late 😂
Joey's friend Kayla
That’s so cool! So did they take you out and show you college bar type night life?
Also it looks gorgeous! As it has in all of your pictures hahah
Joey's friend Melissa
Nice shirt lol but also super awesome! How long are ya'll there for??
Joey
Nah since we haven’t slept in forever we actually turned in around 8 and they went back to work. Which I didn’t really understand why go to work at 8 after taking the afternoon off haha
Well we actually are supposed to be in Georgia by Monday so how that’s gonna happen we aren’t too sure yet. There’s a ferry that leaves from Odessa Friday night we’re gonna try to catch. But if that’s too rushed it leaves again Sunday and we’ll have to be there Tuesday
Joey's friend Kayla
I assume you guys will go out tonight and that they speak some English? That sounds good! Do you think you’ll end up in Russia at all?
Joey
Maybe tomorrow night 😂 it’s past mid night here and in bed haha
And Sasha and one friend speak pretty good English but his brother and our next hosts brother don’t speak much so it’s a lot of translations but they’re super friendly so it doesn’t hinder the bond much
May 24
Just got our tickets for a boat across the Black Sea!
Online it said the boat was full and we called and they said we couldn’t buy tickets. So we hopped in a taxi and showed up anyways and talked to everyone we could find and now we have a ticket and the boat leaves in 15 min 😂
It’s a cargo ship full of shipping containers and then us 🚢
May 26
Joey's friend Kayla
Hahaha I see you survived being shipped across the Black Sea! How is Georgia treating you guys so far? Do you know how long you’ll be there?
May 27
Joey
At least until Saturday. We have a YouTuber joining us for the week who flies in today and we’re meeting up with her tomorrow!
And Georgia is beautiful. We’re loving it 🇬🇪🇬🇪🇬🇪
Our view entering the port
Joey's friend Melissa
Wow that looks amazing! Was the water cold? That's exciting that ya'll are getting another travel companion! Do you know where she is from and what kind of videos she does??
Joey
Haha yes it was cold. Not as bad as the lake in Germany though haha.
She’s also from the US and she does travel videos. Her names jordan!
Joey's friend Kayla
It looks gorgeous! That’s cool! What’s her YouTube channel?
Is she going to be staying with you guys and your new host?
Joey
Travellight
And yes she’s staying with us Tuesday-Saturday
Did you guys see UF won nationals???
🚣‍♀🚣‍♀🚣‍♀
Freakin crazy
Joey's friend Kayla
It is!! Almost every boat made it to the A finals which is even crazier
I watched their live feed! It was amazing
The ACRA live feed*
#gogata
Joey
That’s insane haha
Never thought I’d see the day
So happy for Tippin haha he’s gotta just be over the moon
What the heck haha
Joey's friend Joseph
Yeah man it’s amazing!!!! Also in the regional awards, like half the boat was from UF and tippin got the coach spot...super cool. I wish I could’ve been there to watch!
May 28
Joey
Jordan is from Florida as well!
She is fantastic! So crazy both from Florida traveling around the world and ending up here in Batumi together filming videos haha
Joey's friend Joseph
That’s so cool! Where from Florida is she from?
Joey
Already made friends with one of her fans Christina from New York who happened to be eating at the same place as us tonight haha
Miami
305
Joey's friend Mel
Too many Florida people, poor Paula!! 😂
Joey's friend Joseph
Woah woah woah
Are you forgetting who’s in this chat Mel?
🐊🐊🐊
LEGGOGATA
But also the Florida man challenge is a very real problem hahaha
Joey's friend Kayla
Have you guys done the Florida man challenge yet??
Great minds think alike @Joey's friend Joseph
Joey
Wait what’s the Florida man challenge?
Joey's friend Kayla
You type in Florida man with your birthday. You get your own bizarre Florida man story!
Joey
Wait a second....
Joey's friend Kayla
Or I guess I should say, a unique story
Joey
I totally tagged you both in that haha
Joey's friend Kayla
I’m pretty sure you tagged us in it on Facebook once
Joey
Hahahaha that’s what I was just thinking
😂😂😂
Didn’t realize it was a challenge haha
Joey's friend Mel
Florida Man Arrested After Calling 911 to Get Ride to Hooters

And for some reason y'all are still proud of your state... 🤦‍♀
May 30
Joey's friend Kayla
I saw this story today and thought it was definitely going to be Florida man/woman but I guess the UK also has their own “Florida”
Joey
That story is insane haha
Joey's friend Kayla
So strange haha. Hopefully they catch it to see what it actually is
Joey
Only difference would be “a wild Florida man terrorizes quaint suburb terrifying locals and attacking pets”
As the first line
Joey's friend Kayla
Hahaha I don’t even think I would have to look to far to find that story
I think that’s everyday for Florida man
But anywho, how is Georgia?? What have you seen so far?
Joey
‎Diese Nachricht wurde gelöscht.
It’s been great! Left Batumi and road tripping across the country with Jordan!
Also she asked about my tattoos today and told her the stories and about the mighty gator lightweight 4 and then this popped up in my snap memories
We’ve had matching tattoos for 2 years today @Joey's friend Joseph @Joey's friend Kayla ❤❤❤
Also kinda crazy I just realized I have at least one tattoo with everyone in this chat haha
And now that we’re in Asia this chat has spanned 4 continents haha
Joey's friend Kayla
That’s amazing! I can’t wait to see her videos! And I know it’s crazy to think that was 2 years ago 😭❤ are you guys planning to get a Yuujou tattoo?
Joey's friend Joseph
Yaaaaas ❤
Joey
We’ll see what happens 🤷‍♂ don’t want to plan one but if it happened I wouldn’t be opposed. Gotta keep the line going on my leg. It’s been 2 years since it had an addition haha
Joey's friend Joseph
Is Paula down to get one?
Joey
She doesn’t have any but said she also wouldn’t be opposed. She mentioned getting one already and I was like woah it’s only day 50 let’s wait until closer to 100 haha
Also showed up in the memories from 2 years ago hahaha

How is Russia going?! On a scale of 1 to 10 how much vodka have you drank so far?!

I’m keeping my eye out in the news for any stories about any crazy Americans/Dutch in Russia! Have you done any Chuck Norris shots yet?

What was your episode about?
Joey
Alyona is in video production and has a podcast of interesting people she meets. She’s a friend of Nika who was one of the top 25 we are staying with here in Moscow. So it worked out to meet up today. Just talking about Yuujou and the ideas behind it
And then it started down pour raining so we went out and danced hahaha
