Day 22 – If you could live anywhere
Sorry guys, we’ve got a lot of catching up to do! Unfortunately I’ve been sick like a dog for the past few days. Serves me right I guess for walking my dog in the rain. LOL But can you blame me? How could I say no to this face?
I’m still not feeling so hot but I missed you guys. I don’t quite have the energy to pick up my pen but thanks to Evernote, I don’t have to.
So Day 22’s challenge was: If you chose to live anywhere in the world, where would that be and why?
That’s easy – this one’s a no-brainer. Since I visited Chiang Mai, Thailand last year. It’s all I can ever think about, I even planned my trip back this November before I even boarded my flight home last year and it’s taking everything in me to stop myself from packing now.
I’ve moved around A LOT and although Windsor is the first place I ever ‘called’ home, Thailand is the very first place I ever felt it.
Now I know I’ve already mentioned the great food, the amazing weather and being able to live like a king or queen on an amazingly low budget but all those things are really just the icing on the cake.
What I love most about Thailand is the pace and especially the people. It’s amazing just how much love and affection can be expressed even with a language barrier. Thailand made it easy for me to totally abandon the rat race and invest time into all the things that are truly important.
To be honest, if I didn’t have any commitments here I doubt I’d want to come back. But that’s something else my experience there helped me realize – many of the things I valued there, I can really have anywhere – it’s just a matter of choice.
