We are doing some traveling in Thailand. The trip has two purposes,1) I’m on a fact finding mission to see if this might be an area that others would be excited to visit and 2) exploring Asia is on my Bucket List.
I love to travel far enough that things are foreign, meaning I need to figure things out. Customs, languages, and food are not just like home. I desire this in my travel. I’m always a little disappointed when fellow travelers expect things to be like home when they are away. They probably should just stay home. Our Thai guide, Uza, encouraged us to “Open your eyes wide, but open your mind wider.” A good travel mantra.
There are living walls of orchids in the Bangkok airport. These beautiful, delicate flowers welcome us just like the lovely people.
