Until next time Thailand! ❤
What an adventure this has been! When I left for this trip, I had zero expectations and I did a bit of very poor planning. I've ALWAYS loved "off-the-beaten-path" travel, which nowadays is truly hard to do. I've been a little bitter about that, but I have to say that I am so amazed by all the travelers who are exploring the globe and making the world smaller because of it. I met a 35 year old Canadian base jumper who has never owned a phone; an 18 year old German who is traveling SOLO for a year; a very cool dude from New Jersey who trotted around Yangon like a local and is dreaming big; the loveliest English couple who are the reason I survived the Full Moon Party; an inspiring Norwegian man who is bravely battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer and is living life to the absolute fullest; and some incredible locals with dreams to board an airplane one day (talk about giving me gratitude)...and TOO many others to mention here. This has been an incredible trip and not once did I feel scared or alone. I tell people this all the time - if you ever feel like having an enriching, life changing AND challenging experience take a trip to a new country by yourself. You will learn SO much...about other cultures and about yourself. I'm so grateful everything worked out the way it has and for all the new memories and new friends.
Headed out VERY early in the morning to start my long journey home. I'm going to be SO productive at work on Tuesday 😏 See you back in Calgary! I hope it's not too cold...I don't have any pants!
This photo was taken on the boat ride from Koh Phangan to Surat Thani. As we approached the mainland, these little fishing huts were scattered throughout the Gulf as far as the eye could see. #views#thailand#intransit#enroute
