It’s Official: We’re Heading to Thailand!

December 12, 2017

Coronavirus: Is it safe to Travel Asia?

I don’t know what compelled this year to be such a train wreck, but it has been the most educational, and maturing ride of our lives. Between switching careers, and finding ourselves exasperated with the daily 9-5 routine, we realized we had to take action. My husband, Daniel, and I have talked about traveling the world and seeing Thailand since our first trip across Western Europe in 2015. However, there is a distinct difference between fantasizing about world travel, and selling all of your stuff to do it. It hit us two days after our wedding…

“We want to be on our death beds and be able to say, ‘we lived life with the courage to chase our dreams‘”.

Something about getting married makes you feel really “adulty”. Like, you wake up and realize, “this is your life now”. You’re not in college anymore, your parents don’t make decisions for you, and the only thing between you and living the life you dream about is your own courage and willingness to make sacrifices. Daniel and I looked at each other and thought, “is this what we want to do for the next forty years?”. Work the mediocre job, to pay for the new car that drives us through our mediocre lives? It’s not the life we want to live. We want to be on our death beds and be able to say, “we lived life with the courage to chase our dreams”. So the Tuesday after our wedding we began selling all of our furniture…

Now it’s two months later and it’s official! We’ve booked our one-way tickets to Bangkok, Thailand and are readying to start traveling the world. Why Thailand? It’s cool, it’s tropical, and it’s cheap! Are we scared? Absolutely. Will we let that stop us? Hell no. Why? Because it’s scarier to imagine the next forty years of our lives, giving the best hours our day to make someone else rich. Because life is too damn short to sit around and simply wish for our lives to be more exciting. This is our chase for adventure. Join us. 🙂

If you have any questions about what we’re doing and how we’re doing it, please feel free to ask!

  • What are your plans once you get to Thailand?

    • We have little planned once we get to Thailand. We are going to take a taxi to the touristy areas upon landing, feel out the vibe, and then look for hostels within that area. We’re thinking of staying there for just a couple of months, and then moving on to a different country. We’ll keep you posted with everywhere this trip takes us!

    I’m all about it and couldn’t agree more. My husband will finish his degree in three more years and hopefully things will go from there! Good for both of you!
