The Plan

Although it appeared that we were throwing all abandon to the wind, we still had a plan. Here’s our original plan:

  1. Fly to Bangkok
  2. Immerse ourselves into the culture quickly by spending first few nights in local neighborhood
  3. Immediately tear off the Band-Aid of eating street food
  4. Move up north so I can get a job teaching English
  5. Stay in Thailand a year

…and here is how it has gone

  1. Fly to Bangkok – check
    1. Arrive with food poisoning – check
  2. Immerse ourselves into the culture quickly by spending first few nights in local neighborhood – check
    1. Realize we speak no Thai, we are still tourists (and we are the only tourists around), and there is nothing for us to do since we are staying in said local neighborhood – check
  3. Immediately tear off the Band-Aid of eating street food – check
    1. Get rapidly introduced to the interesting smell of animal fat burning off the retched smelling coals this neighborhood uses – check
  4. Move up north (check) so I can go get a job teaching English – ummm
    1. Completely change plans and abandon teaching English plan – check
  5. Stay in Thailand a year – ummmm
    1. No income from teaching job means can only live off savings…and don’t have enough for a year

…and the Addendum

  1. Start a blog and become famous on the internet – work in progress
  2. Use my fancy new camera that BC bought me to become world master photographer – work in progress

So…that’s where we are
