I am writing now sitting at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, waiting to board my flight to London. I have finished my exams, I have said my “see you soon’s” I have done the absolute impossible (only thanks to my fantastic roommate) and have fit 5 months worth of purchases and clothing into only one checked bag (I am not pleased with my airline about this), and I took my last look at the beautiful Bangkok skyline from my bedroom window.
Yesterday and today, ironically, I had the best Thai food of this entire semester, food which I will definitely miss. I am off to London now to spend a week traveling within Europe to visit family, and while I cannot WAIT to see my family, I am absolutely sad that I am already leaving Bangkok. It is an incredible city that very quickly came to feel like home, and I could have easily continued on living here without hesitation. It is very rare that a city can offer so much, from incredible food and cheap amenities, to fantastic weather and the kindest people you will ever encounter. It will certainly be interesting, after this year of travel, to go back to the “real world.”
Once I am home back in US I will do one last blog post on how the readjusting is going. Until then, for those who have never been to Thailand before, I highly recommend researching how you could make a trip to Thailand possible. Thailand has everything to offer, and is absolutely worth the trip half way around the world!
