It took over 24 hours to get to Thailand. My mind is still trying to catch up to my body. 24 hours seems like a long time until you consider I am half-way across the world!
I've never made a trip of this length before but I was amazed at how smoothly it went. Canada to Korea to Thailand… three flights, five airports, six in-flight meals… and despite language barriers and time zone differences the machine smoothly propelled me towards my final destination.
Yesterday, as I clung to my dad as he drove the rental scooter to our bungalows, I felt moved to suddenly declare, "I'm in Thailand" like I couldn't believe it. My dad laughed.
It's amazing how accessible the world is if you have the means to travel.
