Inspired by Eat, Pray, love, I decided to go away for six weeks, starting in Bangkok with further destinations unknown.
For the ones who haven’t seen the movie, it’s about a woman with a ‘perfect life’, or so it seems and she decides to make a 180 degree turn by getting a divorce, going to Rome to learn Italian, then to India to learn how to meditate and then to Bali where she finds true love.
Lately, or honestly for a very long time now, I’ve been indecisive about what I want in life, from life.
Feeling like I’m one big glorious mess in her quarter life crisis I just booked my ticket, packed my bags, got on the plane to Bangkok and left.
Statistically seen, there is many people in their 20’s doubting their life choices and surely this is not a permanent solution, but I do believe it could be helpful in my so-called self-exploration.
I just want to go to places, with no one to have an influence on my thoughts, my decisions, my principles and my self-reflections.
So in order to discover the ‘’real me’’ I decided to disconnect from my daily life.
Furthermore, there is a really positive side-effect to me going to Bangkok, and that would be me seeing family that I hadn’t seen in 10 years that live there. And a cheap upgrade to business class for my outgoing flight wasn’t too bad either!
I’ve been away a little bit over a week now and so far, my travels taught me that:
- -You can actually get fatter from only eating fried rice and chicken.
- -I can get even more confused about where I want to live in life.
- -That Thai people are really short next to me.
- -My body is not made for the tropical heat.
Having said that I can’t wait to share my adventure with you and hear about all your opinions, tips and even suggestions.
All right, it has been emotional, bye!
