Heather's journey to Bangkok, Thailand: a year of adventure!

All Lit Up

The other night we went to Khao San Road (sort of the white person hub of Bangkok- I've been there a few times; the first time I went I thought "This street is whiter than I am") and had dinner. When we were driving back, it was dark. There are a lot of decorations around the city for the King's 60th anniversary, and they are best appreciated at night.





It reminds me of Christmas back home...which makes me miss Canada. I miss many things about home- some inevitable, others surprising. I never thought I would miss wearing a toque, Kraft Dinner, driving in Calgary, cold water at the beach... but I do. And I miss my family, my friends, my room, my things, playing soccer, going out to "the usual places" on the weekends, being able to phone people whenever I want...

I suspect I'll come home for a visit in October. If I do, I already have a list of things that MUST occur while I'm back:
1. Play a soccer game
2. See a concert
3. Walk in snow
4. Drive through the mountains
5. Enjoy many tearful reunions and, unfortunately, sad goodbyes

Until next time,
Heather

    Do you ever work? Let's be honest here, this is really just one long vacation.
