The Home Experience – Thailand

One of the nights when we were drinking with our friends at Landmark in November 2019, we all planned to go to Amphawa Floating Market in the province next to ours, Samut Songkhram. Christina and I woke up and took a grab. Indria ended up waking up late so she missed our taxi ride. WeContinue reading “The Home Experience – Thailand”

Khao Sam Roi Yot

Okay so I think this was my favorite vacation while we were in Thailand. I know I’ve said that before though 😆 It was such a relaxing and humble vacay. Khao Sam Roi Pot is in the Prachuap Khiri Khan Province in Thailand. It is even more south than Hua Hin. We took a vanContinue reading “Khao Sam Roi Yot”

Indria’s Birthday @Hua Hin

Hua Hin is a district heading toward the south of Thailand in Prachuap Khiri Khan province. The weekend before Indria’s 23rd birthday in 2019, Indria, Christina, and I took a mini trip to Hua Hin. Luckily, Mahachai had a van stop that went from there to Hua Hin. It only took about two hours andContinue reading “Indria’s Birthday @Hua Hin”

Maeklong Railway Market

On one of the days that we were let out early, Christina and I hopped on the ferry near the fish market and began our journey to Samut Songkhram. From the Mahachai Pier, we took a ferry to Tha Chalom Pier. From Tha Chalom, we made our way to the Ban Laem train stop. ItContinue reading “Maeklong Railway Market”

Wat Sam Phran

The 17 story dragon temple is in Amphoe Sam Phran in Nakhon Pathom Province. It is located north of Samut Sakhon so it was only a few hundred Baht and an hour-ish Grab ride away from us. It’s also about 26 miles (~41km) from Bangkok. On a hot November Sunday, we made our way there.Continue reading “Wat Sam Phran”

Weddings in Thailand

During my ten wonderful months in Thailand, I got to go to two weddings. You can invite whoever to the wedding up until the day which is pretty cool. Sometimes the weddings also have themes. We didn’t have a theme for the first one. A previous employee came to our school one day and invitedContinue reading “Weddings in Thailand”

Greenheart & Xplore Asia

I came across Greenheart after I joined a bunch of Facebook groups. In January 2019, I was finishing up my practicum hours through the YMCA in a nearby town. I loved going and helping the students. I ended up talking to this dude through Facebook who said he was sick of life in America andContinue reading “Greenheart & Xplore Asia”

Teaching in Chaiyaphum

There were 6 other foreign teachers at Anuban Chaiyaphum. The first day of school, one of them came and picked me up. So sweet. My first day walking home from school I got lost (shocker). I walked by this restaurant and these two ladies were kind enough to help me. I called my advisor fromContinue reading “Teaching in Chaiyaphum”

Chaiyaphum, Thailand

Chaiyaphum is about a 5ish hour bus ride to Bangkok. It was much more rural than Mahachai. I could cross the street without the fear of being hit. The walk to school was about fifteen minutes and there was a 7 (of course) right down the street from me. There were two bus stations nearContinue reading “Chaiyaphum, Thailand”
