Thailand for me has not just been a holiday spot. I miss visiting it so terribly in recent times, especially because I would religiously visit the country at least once a year. Hence, most time is spent either talking about it, watching vlogs on it or just researching on our future holiday plans.
It has given me just so much and it is also a place of many firsts besides the one wherein I could truly rediscover myself. The country on my many visits has helped me a great deal in letting go of what had to be forgotten and embrace what needed importance. I rediscover myself here every time and pump in the much needed confidence.
It was the first international holiday my late father let me go on, it made for my first solo international flight, it was the first holiday I could give my mother, it was the first place I could display my work that I am extremely passionate about, it made for the first international destination for many of my blog collaborations, it was the first place I discovered the magic of marine life and so on. Hence, it really has helped me revive my zest towards life like no other country.
In Thailand, I have enjoyed hospitality like nowhere else. Luxury has seemed affordable and accessible. But something that money can’t buy are the smiles of the locals which truly fill your heart and one receives those in abundance. Whenever I think of a place to relax and rejuvenate- no other country comes to my mind. That is why whenever I would feel I have saved enough from my salary and needed a break- I would instantly just book my tickets and fly to my favorite destination.
My love for the country was so strong and pure that I attracted a husband who loved Thailand immensely and would also visit the country at least once a year since childhood. Our honeymoon became even more special as we both took each other to our favourite spots and gave each other our take on the city of Bangkok. I will give you a peek into just one of our evenings where we strolled around the Asiatique Night Market, then went to the very fancy ARTBOX night market in Sukhumvit, followed by eating the most delicious fish at Zanzibar, then partied it up at Levels Club and finally, went for a drink to Sirocco. That is what Bangkok does to you, it lets you be and lets you have the time of your life.
What’s more is that some of my closest friends reside in Bangkok and that has truly helped me in enjoying the city and country like a local.
Whether it’s running to catch our ferry back home from Phi Phi or running to make it to the last ferry from Rayong to Koh Samet or attending a Sikh wedding at the Gurudwara in Bangkok, shopping suitcases full of goodies at Platinum Mall or just eating the most delicious food on the streets- I have made memories of a lifetime which are just so special like the country Thailand is- special and amazing!
