Last weekend I journeyed north to Bangkok, Thailand.
And what a ride.
Because of the type of visa I have here in Australia, I needed to leave the country for a few days. So I decided to take the opportunity to meet up with an old New Kent homie, Kyle Mechling, who currently lives just next door in Vietnam.
I had never been to Asia before. Both excited and nervous, I wasn't sure what to expect. Especially in a city as full-on as Bangkok. Despite the many variables, we had a pretty rad time. Made some cool Thai friends, rode at Thai Wake Park, ate heaps of Pad Thai, and wandered through beautiful temples & palaces.
Not only did we pick a long holiday to go on, but turned out that the Thai New Year "Songkran" was the same weekend. And to celebrate, the country puts on a huge Water Festival. In short, we waltzed right into a nation-wide water gun war. Crazy.
In short, jumping into Bangkok for 2 days revealed a whole archive of senses I had never experienced before, with a newfound love and respect for Asia and all it has to offer. With that said, I'm glad to be back in Australia safe and sound, ready to finish up my Shillington Graphic Design course in a few weeks.
