While it's great to be home after a month-long adventure in Asia, I'm missing traveling already! There is nothing like seeing & experiencing something new. Traveling isn't only about leisure or lying on a beach, but taking advantage of the chance you have to learn and open your eyes to different cultures around the world.

As I shared about my Vietnam Trip, I'm excited to share some stories from my trip to Thailand. I packed a lot in a week, so I'll be sharing bits and pieces throughout the next weeks.

If there is a sight you have to see sometime in your life, it's the Grand Palace in Bangkok. At first I thought it would be like other palaces I've seen in Asia, but wow! The Grand Palace is an exquisite piece of art that Thailand's kings once lived in.

I was mesmerized by every detail put into the architecture and really just the idea that people had to put every little detail in place is incredible to imagine. And let me just say, Thai people love their gold & beetle wings in their buildings. The hot sun reflected so beautifully on the palace.

Speaking of the hot sun, the dress code in any buildings affiliated with the royal family requires women to have their shoulders covered and skirts to the ankles. The weather was in the 90s and above so let's just say that cameras do I very good job of hiding the reality that I was drenched in sweat and uncomfortable. But nevertheless, it was a beautiful experience!
