This week I made my way back down to the heart of Thailand after my extended exploration up North. En route I stopped for two days in the ancient capital of Sukhothai, which I’ve been wanting to visit since my trips to Ayutthaya and Lopburi last year. Then I made my way to Bangkok, from where I write you now. Bangkok is one of my favorite cities in the world, and it feels like home to be back here. Last night I checked out the Talad Rot Fai night market and it melted my heart — vintage wares, painfully hip people, and tons of delicious street food to snack on. Can’t wait to post more about it!
Tomorrow, I have a flight booked to the Philippines. Can we be real for a minute here? I’m kind of in panic mode here — to the point that I’m not sure I’m going to get on that plane. Am I really ready to leave Thailand? I’m really torn, going back and forth every minute –and it’s a horrible feeling. Do I want to explore somewhere new, stay put somewhere fabulous and familiar, or what the heck — go travel to Vietnam or Cambodia or Laos and see all the bits I missed last time. I guess you’ll see from next week’s Photo of the Week what I decided to do!
