there were no zombie breakouts and there definitely wasn’t any gongyoo around (train to busan, anyone?) but i love train rides in the uk. something about it gives me that calm… maybe except for when i’m forced to ride backwards and it gives me that motion sickness and i always tend to pick the wrong direction and by the time i realize it’s too late to change cos all the other seats are taken.
2016 has been one hell of a roller coaster ride for me. there were, without a doubt, many ups but also countless downs; met some really good people at the same time some really, really awful people; but i believe that at the end it all boils down having had that experience. good or bad there’s always a lesson to be learned in every experience and what’s important is that you take this with you along the journey in order to evolve in the higher dimensions. one of the biggest lessons i’ve learned is that you’ve got to keep learning. be inquisitive. be interested in things that surround you. you’ve got to keep pushing yourself because even if you might think you are – no one is there yet and can ever be. eventually what will make you stand out from the crowd is not how talented you are, not how smart you are but rather, how curious you are.
happy new year.
bangkok riverside restaurant samsara; people often misuse the term ‘hidden gem’ when it really should only be used for places like this. samsara, this place is a real hidden gem of bangkok and it literally is hidden. i was legit surprised to see that there were so many foreigners at this place despite the secluded location. without a doubt it’s no longer hidden from the travelers (as the price, too, will suggest) i have to admit it oozes that local, hole-in-the-wall kind of vibe that most travelers find fascinating.
