I’ll be one month abroad in a country that I’ve never explored, exposed to a culture completely different than anything I’ve experienced, surrounded by people speaking a language that I don’t know a single word of.
My half jokingly response to people when they ask, ‘What are you going to do in Thailand for a whole month?!’ is, “I’m going to find myself.” This, without fail, always follows with a laugh.
I’m not quite sure what I’ll get out of this trip. I don’t want to have any expectations and then feel unfulfilled after. But I do have one small request to the Buddhist, Christian, Muslim Gods, please please, let me eat the best Pad Thai I’ve ever had.
