First off: Pai is amazing. It should at or near the top of everyone's destination list when visiting Thailand. This amazing little mountain town is giving me flashbacks to Ton Sai, that favorite little beach/rock climbing community I always rave about. As soon as I rolled into town yesterday afternoon, I instantly had a good feeling about it. Everything just radiates positive vibes, and gets better at night when the reggae music starts blaring out of the multitude of reggae bars in this town. And there's even a couple bars with fire pits in them, which I think is an absolutely brilliant idea! I was lucky enough to meet a huge crowd of travelers to hang out with, all of which are great people to be around.
And since I'm in the right frame of mind, I'll do a quick little travel review of my thoughts. I've been traveling for a total of 155 days so far, or 5 months and 2 days. This has absolutely been the best decision I've ever made for myself, and I'm glad I had the balls to make it. It had been too long since I've said the phrase 'I love life', and I'm so happy I can finally say it. I've gone through thick and thin so far, and I'm still eager to see the world. While I do miss my family and friends, I'm not ready to go home yet. There's too much out there left to experience. On my travels I've met so many people that are out here to search for themselves, to find their inner soul. Not me, I know myself, I'm right here. This is about developing the person I already am, and I can't wait to see what the next eight months does for me. Life is great, and I'm glad I'm finally living it properly.
