Stay-cations are something we really have only been doing for a few years now. It’s actually what inspired our exploration of our great state of Arizona. For awhile, well actually always, we were on a pretty tight budget and getting out of state just wasn’t written in the stars for our family of seven. Finding great places to check out near us has become a fast family favorite. This summer we made a quick trip up to Flagstaff to get out of the heat, check out from technology, and just simply unwind.
As long as I can remember, I have dreamed of traveling to Thailand. Bangkok Thailand was top of the list. Being adopted and being raised in an all white family, I often heard the question, “how come you don’t look like them?”. It never bothered, especially as a small kid, I never felt like I didn’t look like anyone, what I looked like was always the furthest thing from my curious mind. As I became a teenager, kids my age were a lot more inquisitive. Asking more targeted questions like “what are you”, my awkward teenage self always wanted to answer in really weird ways, probably did most of the time. But I knew they just really wanted to know what my ethnic background. Luckily for me, I didn’t mind telling people I was half Thai and adopted. The more I shared that I was Thai (and was always correcting people that Thai is of Thailand and NOT Taiwan), I started to look into all things Thai and fell in love with my ancestry. Thus my lust for strolling the country of Thailand. I hope you enjoy these photos from my first trip. I guarantee it won’t be my last! Here are 5 things to do in Bangkok, Thailand.
