It really difficult to single out a favourite travel memory but Ill try. So I'm going with my most recent travels to Thailand. I started by traveling around the south with my boyfriend on one of those organised tours. After he left I stayed on for a few weeks to meet up with my bestie in Bangkok.
Bangkok being a dirty smelly place was really unappealing to spend 2 weeks in. So I booked myself a flight to the North and went on an adventure. This turned out to be the best decision I could of made. I based myself in Chiang Mai and traveled to see the hill tribe peoples and the Golden triangle. But the real highlight was the town of Chiang Mai itself. This little place was packed full of book stores and art galleries, my perfect place !
The picture is of a book store that I spent ages looking through. All the books in the store were left behind by other travelers. You could buy a book and then return it later getting half your money back. I loved the idea that I could pick up a book that was read by another traveler, and perhaps even brought over from their own country, and now left for me to find.
Thanks Hila for this weeks theme.
