Definitely a different way to travel....

Thailand from day two enthralled and captivated me; on day one it terrified me, landing alone in Bangkok I was scared. It was the first trip I ever dared to take alone and I was terrified, that unconscious grip of fear that lay within me, which belongs to the unknown, but at the edge of that fear lay an excitement, an unshakable empowerment and sensational thrill. Met at the airport by a former Buddhist monk from the volunteer company, I felt a great privilege at his presence and a deep respect for his love of Elton John (I later found out...
