A traveler friend

Sometime ago, I met a traveller in Laos. We backpacked together for two months. I remember during our first meeting she asked what time is it. I gently told her what time it was and from there, we shared conversation over cups of coffee. We had lot in common. She is also finding herself, just like me. We both qui jobs so we can have a life of travel and we both went to Southeast Asia to find ourselves. We checked in a small but hip hostel and made more conversations as the they go by. We went island hopping, beach bumming, doing city tours, and even camped. We were best friends. However, due to an emergency she had to go back to Scotland immediately I was left behind. We were in Bangkok then and we parted ways. Before parting way, she gave me a couple of wooden watches which she says she always bring wherever she goes and she usually give it to a person she has been accustomed to. We still communicate with each other even after seven months and we are now planning to meet together somewhere in South Korea for our reunion.
