We might be travellers throughout the course of our lives, and might absolutely love every minute spent acting in this way. But it can sometimes be that we never completely feel ‘at home’ in our new temporary environment, no matter how much we wish to see ourselves as an ‘Earth citizen.’ This isn’t so bad. Without the feeling of exotic adventure, we likely wouldn’t head to so many distant locales to see just what is beyond the horizon. After all, we often think that the world has shrunk due to satellite mapping and the ease of travel, but the world is the same size it always was, and will always retain the capacity to surprise and astonish you.

We planned a family trip to Bangkok to celebrate my sister’s 25th Birthday – although, we ended up celebrating her birthday without her.
Lesson 1: Do not look for your passport a few hours before the flight, have it ready at the point of booking your flight
My sister and brother had misplaced their passports, and only realised 3 hours before our flight from Singapore to Bangkok. I remained positive that they would find their passports and be able to catch the evening flight out, but this never happened. So it was just me, my mum and her partner.
I was convinced that I had been to Bangkok before, but my memory fails me at times and I cannot be 100% certain, I’ll have to ask my dad if he took us there as kids.

Lesson 2: You always discover something new when you visit a place you’ve been to before Continue reading “3 Day Itinerary in Bangkok”
