Advice for Future Thailand Travelers

After reading my traveling counterparts submissions, it is difficult to think of original responses, but I will do my best! First of all, every person will take something different away from this experience which may be either good or bad. From my Thailand experience, you MUST keep an open mind! You have to be ready for just about anything and everything. Second, go with the flow and live in the moment. If you have a difficult time changing destinations or plans on the fly, you will most likely get frustrated. This trip has taught me so many things that I would have never learned in school and despite its harsh price tag, it is worth every dollar. I not only gained a deeper and broader perspective on life, but I made some long-lasting relationships that I am greatly appreciative of.

Before you leave for Thailand, be sure to explore the many dimensions of their cuisine. It will make for a little smoother transition into the trip, but fear not, you will find western style food establishments in larger cities such as Bangkok if it doesn’t work out. All in all, it is very important to take a little time out of the day and the places you had been to reflect. Reflect, reflect, reflect. If you don’t, you may miss out on how ideas and experiences made you feel. By placing an emotion or feeling to something you did, it will help you establish a long-lasting memory.

Well, that’s all I have for the next travelers. I hope you take away as much, if not more, from Thailand than I did and that you truly let it change you for the better. Until next time…
