Day 0 – The 40 day adventure to Thailand

The feeling before a big change in your life is a really interesting one. On the morning of January 20th when I woke up to head to the airport to begin my 40 day Thailand adventure, my first ever real travel experience, I was filled with a sense of total excitement and a weird mix of wonder and curiously. I wasn’t sure what it was like to do something like this, I didn’t know what to expect or what was about to experience, and I had no idea how it would one day affect the course of my entire life.

I remembered back to the pivotal moment that led up to this day, 6 months prior to this I had been sitting on my computer at work, in my struggling company that was slowly going downhill when I had stumbled across the website about this trip to Thailand. I was so awestruck by the images of Thailand and the promise of what this trip would entail that I turned to my friend next to me and said to him “6 months from now, no matter what happens, whether I still have this job or not I’m going on this trip to Thailand.” People make statements like this all the time, but for some reason when I said these words it felt so perfect I knew it would happen.

It was now six months later and I had indeed quit my job to go on this trip. This trip would soon turn into the best time I’ve ever had, and convince me that a life full of travel and adventure was the right one for me.
