How to Almost Heal a Broken Heart in Bangkok

How to Almost Heal a Broken Heart in Bangkok

A broken heart is never a welcome condition when travelling but when your heart is in pieces and your flight is booked and hotel accommodations paid for, all you can do is dance to the music. Why waste all that money spent? Plus I have read that travel can be a good cure to a broken heart so I figured it would be the apropos time to put the theory to the test and see if it will hold up.

Bangkok is a vibrant city. I have read and heard so many things about it but I have to admit I was not looking forward to the trip that much. I had to haul myself out of bed almost daily as my rose colored lenses were abruptly broken. Fortunately I had friends who were willing to push and pull me out of the bed when all I wanted to do was lie there after a sucker punch.

Khao San Road

If you have not read the book The Beach yet, then let me tell you that Khao San Road has been famously described as the “center of the backpacking universe”. This is true because along the whole stretch of this 1km road, you will find various hostels, motels, bars, pubs and clubs, travel agents, market stalls, bookshops and what not. There is so much goodness that the street can’t contain it anymore, some have actually spilled to the nearby Soi Rambuttri.

Ayutthaya – Real Life Temple Run!

I have always had this attachment towards ancient temples and ruins. There is just something so charming, otherworldly and endearing about them. I cannot explain the appeal of ancient structures. Perhaps it is the knowledge that generations of people have made these temples their homes […]

Am I Truly Living the Life I Want?

Am I Truly Living the Life I Want?

As I sit here thinking about tomorrow. Monday, the start of another work week, I ask myself, am I truly living the life I want to live? Am I willing to submit myself to hours upon hours of slavery to the corporate world? Not that I am complaining.

My job pays really well but I have to be in the office for five and a half days. Let us just say that my current work is hardly my dream job. What I want to do is to travel; write about different places; the people who live there; the food they eat; and their customs and cultures. I do not want to be tied down to my desk, finishing tons of paperwork or going from one branch to another making sure that operations are as smooth as they can possibly be.

Falling in Love with Prambanan

Falling in Love with Prambanan

Finally seeing Prambanan was like a rollercoaster ride for me. For lack of a better description, I felt giddy. I felt like a teenager who was looking at a boy she really liked and secretly wished to be with. Yes, it is kind of embarrassing […]

Live to Travel, Travel to Live

Live to Travel, Travel to Live

  When I was younger and would hear my friends talking about their recent trips, I would secretly envy them. I would think to myself how good it would be to also go to faraway places, see things which are out of the ordinary and […]
