Thailand

I had a question recently about my trip to Thailand and what I learnt there, if I enjoyed it and is it somewhere others should go. So I decided to write a travel post about my experinces there.

I travelled Thailand in March, half of April and the end of May 2016 for a total of around 2 months and I will 100% go again at some point. It was incredible and I learnt, explored and saw so much.

It began with a flight from Sydney on the 1st of March, I said goodbye to Adi as I set of for the next part of my journey where I would be travelling with 23 other people whom I had never met in my life before. During the 3 weeks that we travelled the south of Thailand together I made friends for life, memories that will always make me smile and opened my eyes to the realization that having friends all around the world with different lives, upbringings and cultures is amazing.
We started in Bangkok and then worked our way down to Krabi, Koh Samui and the Phi Phi islands. During this time we explored little islands, did boat trips, partied on beaches and really explored a lot. I got to touch an elephant for the first time in my life and almost cried at how beautiful they are and how they all deserve to be free and live a happy life. I had a great time and was then lucky enough to go get my Padi Diving on the island Koh Tao.

After that my wonderful family came to visit me, we met in Bangkok and then explored Hua Hin, Koh Tao and Phuket. It was the first time I saw my family in 6 months and was so so happy to have them travelling with me. However during our amazing time, my mum and I had an accident on a moped and ended up getting rather badly hurt, nothing to stop us exploring but it reduced the amount of fun we could have.

We made some very adorable friends along the way and got to explore some incredible museums and caves.

My final part of travelling Thailand was with Adi, he came and met my parents for the first time just a few days before they left and continued with me around Vietnam, Cambodia and then back to south Thailand to see the Phi Phi islands, Phuket and Krabi with me. When Adi first came to join me, I became very ill after the accident and spent a lot of time in and out of the hospitals there, we continued to travel around but mostly stayed in Bangkok for two weeks to allow myself to heal as I could only stay awake for a couple of hours at a time. Although it wasn’t fun it was a good opportunity to spend some time in the city, becoming one of the locals and really seeing what it was like to live in Thailand. The food markets there were so incredible and it really is a fast-growing city with everything you could need all very close by.

Thailand for me wasn’t just an exploring and sightseeing trip, by the end of it I had experienced so much and that I will always have with me. As I travelled this incredible country, I saw the beauty of their wildlife, swimming with turtles and seeing monkeys run along the beaches. I also experienced the hustle and bustle of a city that is growing more and more every day. I walked around the streets of Bangkok and the beaches of Phuket breathing in the beauty of this world, but what really made me think a lot is how I want my children to experience all of this too, to have the chance to immerse themselves into different cultures and walk around stunning forests without any of it being ruined. I saw the rubbish being burnt on the streets when people didn’t know what else to do with it, and people littering on the beaches without a care for the outcome and so what I brought back with me from Thailand and also all of my travels is that we have to do something to give our future generations the chance to live these lives to. I decided that if I can do something little like share my experiences and the differences I will make in my life and inspire others than I will. I hope you liked this post with an insight to why I started this blog and get the chance to see and show your children the beauty of this world xx
