Greetings from Bangkok! Okay, well technically I’m not in Bangkok anymore, but I was when I first penned this post. Unfortunately I fell off the grid for a few days and didn’t get the chance to upload, but you’ll hear more about that next week. For now — Bangkok.
I returned back to the Big Mango just a few weeks after last leaving in order to attend the very first TBEX Asia. I’ll be writing more in the future about this conference and the milestone that speaking at it was for me, but suffice it to say I feel humbled by how far I’ve come since I first eagerly attended TBEX in North America back in 2012. More — much more — on TBEX later. I’m already looking forward to the 2016 edition in Manila!
Other unrelated highlights of the week included a shopping spree at Chatuchak Market for my new apartment on Koh Tao, a beautiful run through Lumphini Park, and unexpectedly hanging out with a huge contingent of my Koh Tao family who also just so happened to be in the city (not that I should be surprised — I can’t go anywhere without bumping into this crew!)
Next week, I’ll be checking in from my PostBEX tour to Trang and Satun, a new corner of Thailand for me. Between now and then, you’ll be reading about my time in Tennessee — posts I’m so excited to share! Wishing you a wonderful week from wherever you’re reading. And now, onto Photo of the Week…
