One night, I booked a plane ticket to Thailand, spending most of my savings and finally breaking free from the excuses I’d been repeating to myself for years (work, no spare time, school…). Traveling has always been a passion of mine; I believe a person should always be trying to be more cultured, as it keeps your mind open to anything. I know it’s rough being a student and not being able to afford it, but even driving just 3 hours from home, the feeling of being away is remarkable.
As corny as it sounds, the trip changed my life completely, and the flight home was the longest flight ever. I’ve busied myself booking the next festival & trip with friends this July; planning the next adventure really helps with the post-traveling depression. I can’t even begin to explain all the adventures I experienced, because there’s truly no words. But these are little snippets of what I found on my trip to Thailand, and what I left behind when I was lost in paradise.
