Where Have I Been


Over the past 12 months, I have been spending an increasing amount of time offline. It all started in June last year when I deactivated my Facebook and Instagram account in an attempt to curb my social media consumption. It was a great decision - I suddenly had more time to do the things I really enjoyed (such as reading). It also forced me to take a step back from the curated lives of so many and live and focus on my own life in a healthier manner.

Bangkok


In Bangkok, we walked a lot, ate cheap street food and sweated a lot.

Wat Pho


Wat Pho, one of the oldest wats in Bangkok, is known for the 46m reclining Buddha. It was first constructed in the 18th century by King Rama I and underwent a series of expansions and renovations by the subsequent kings.

Pattaya


The next leg of our journey was in Thailand; Pattaya and Bangkok to be specific.

We caught the cheap airport bus to Pattaya, walked in the hot weather for far too long with our luggage (a recurring occurrence on our trip) and finally made it to our nice hotel. Our accommodation up until that point had been on the budget side and it was definitely nice to have a great shower and a comfortable bed.

Hanoi


The main reason for our visit to Vietnam's capital - Hanoi - was to embark on the Ha Long Bay tour. Subsequently, we didn't have much time for the city itself; it was effectively a day combined.
