Christmas Overseas was better planned than Thanksgiving. We went to Thailand. Bangkok to be exact. Before I dive into pictures of our trip and the experience let me reflect on the past year of my life.
Christmas 2015 I struggled to provide for Elise a Christmas. My bought us plane ticket to come home because I was gonna stay home in my apartment and be depressed and sit deep in my feelings. 2015-2016 school I took a 10k pay cut in the state of Maryland. How I kept the lights on, food in the house, and roof over our head ….was nothing but God. I moved into a better apartment in a better school district but rent was higher and now I paying for before and after care all with a lower salary. I was tired of the struggle but I like living in Maryland.
Christmas 2016 I was able to book a flight to Bangkok, Thailand. I was able to not only afford TWO plane tickets but I was also able to afford the actual trip wot be able to sightsee and stay in two different hotels over the course of 7 days. MERRY CHRISTMAS! She enjoyed herself. I enjoyed myself. Bangkok owes me nothing, except the Grand Palace. (The king’s body was lying there and I’m sorry I just couldn’t bring myself to book a tour with a dead body inside)
Bangkok was busy and crowded so yeah I don’t have to go again. The beach was beautiful and I definitely want to see more of the beaches. I also want to see the Tigers and ride an Elephant. Maybe visit the floating market. However what I saw and was able to do I am happy and would suggest it to anyone.
I didn’t take pictures of our first hotel which turned out to be a hostel. I did not like it at all. I barely wanted to stay but that’s life. We live and we learn. I enjoyed the city and all that we saw.
