The Journey Begins!
There's a reason most people don't up and leave their jobs/lives/houses at the age of 28 to travel around for six months--there are challenges and there are moments of doubt! I learned the value of travel early on in life through the influence of key family members as well as travel experiences to Spain and Jerusalem and that is what has pushed me through the moments of doubt and kept me excited, happy, and motivated to endure the challenges that come with travel.
It took us a total of 35 hours to get to Bangkok, including a refueling pit stop in Guam and an overnight layover in Manila, but we've finally made it. I still can't really believe I'm here. There is A LOT about this place that is different -- the language is completely foreign to me, the people look completely different from myself, and it is really, really hot. But it's the start of a great journey and I'm so glad I'm here.
