The Highlights of Thailand

I don’t even know where to begin. With a 3 hour boat, 3 hours waiting, 9 hours on a bus, 24 hours in Bangkok, a 4 hour flight followed by a 9 hour flight, it’s safe to say the journey home wasn’t for the faint hearted and I had a lot of time to reflect about my adventure in Thailand.

After quickly dropping off our stuff we took our and first Tuk-Tuk ride and headed to the Walking Market, which is a Night Bazaar that only happens on weekends.
