Lost in Thailand…

The year I traveled to Bangkok was an adventurous one. I remember being determined to travel, that year. At this point, I had been working in Japan for almost a year and had not taken a vacation. When the opportunity presented itself, I knew I had to go. I shared and Air B&B with a friend and the trip itself was nothing short of amazing. We spent the days letting the beauty of Thailand lead the way.
This trip will always be something I’m proud I had the apportunity to take on. In the mornings, we would break our fast with fresh fruits and street food. From there, we would walk until we could jump in a TookTook. We would tell the driver where we needed to go and he would entertain us the attire way there. We spend our days visiting landmarks and when night would fall, we would end up at the hottest parties. Afternoons were spend on the private rooftop pool accompanied with drinks and girl-talk.
The locals were extremely friendly, in the city. The one time we ended up at a local cooking class will prove itself to be an amazing memories as the years go by. We got to cook traditional dishes from scratch, even making our own coconut milk. We met some great people in that class and it didn’t hurt that the food was nothing short of amazing. I do regret not making it to the country side nor to the beaches. So until I make it to Phuket, Thailand is still in my bucket list…lol.

The NOLA Way…

I was at work when I received the invite. A trip to New Orleans has been long overdue. I had been previously but almost always on a work trip. This time it would be different. This time I was going on a real trip, with no work in sight…yay.

Upon my arrival, we opted for a Lyft to the hotel and our driver had the best suggestions on what to do, where to eat and things to see.

We unknowingly booked the perfect hotel, walking distance to the French Quarter and Burbon Street. Conveniently enough, a street car line traveled right in front of our hotel, as well. The first night in town, we went to a late dinner at Daisy Dukes. Rumor has it that the character Princess Tiana from Disney’s Princess and the Frog is based off of the original owner of Daisy Dukes.

The first day full day, we woke up to pouring rain. Initially this had us on edge because everything we had planed for the majority of that day would have put us outside. Thankfully, the rain subdued by the time we headed out the doors and we went on to walk the streets downtown and take on a ghost tour of New Orleans. On the tour, we visited cemeteries, learned a lot about the ways and geography of the place and met some very interesting individuals.

I really thought we would be out at all hours of the day and night but the sun and humidity beat us down on most of the days and we ended in our room, every night with the TV on… I know…I’m not proud lol.

I had such a great time in New Orleans! I can’t wait to come back and I’m also eager to book another trip, before the end of the calendar year.

Where should I go next? DC, Maybe?
