My husband spent 3 years living in Thailand. Consequently, I've heard a lot of stories about the humid, tropical, spicy, humble, beautiful country. Sometimes I feel like I've been there because I've heard so many stories. But, I haven't. I haven't experienced the warm, turquoise water. I haven't walked down the pulsing, vibrant Khao San Road. I haven't eaten freshly prepared street food served in newspaper. I haven't been fooled by a ladyboy. I haven't felt beads of sweat dripping down my face. I haven't felt the breeze in my hair as I cruise down a busy road on a scooter. I haven't rode an elephant. I haven't toured the Buddhist temples. I haven't visited Thailand. But someday, I will.
