Why Thailand is a Good Idea.

Yesterday, I booked my flight from Toronto to Thailand. In less than two weeks, I’ll travel across the Pacific, land briefly in Hong Kong and then fly into Bangkok. And yes, I’m doing it all by myself.

I’m going to be honest with you: I’m scared shitless. And that’s why I’m so certain it’s a good idea.

When I was little, I remember waking up in the middle of the night crying because my legs hurt. My mom always told me that it was growing pains – and that it was as a result of me getting taller. In actuality, science hasn’t found any evidence that physical growth hurts. But from my personal experience, I’m quite certain that the more internal growth often does.

It’s the feeling that you get before speaking to a large crowd, or jumping out of a plane… or going to a faraway land (did I mention I’m going by myself?) for the very first time.

When we push beyond our emotional, mental, psychological and spiritual bounds – and grow and evolve as an individual – it can hurt. It can be scary. But when all is said and done, we’re almost always glad for having stretched ourselves to new dimensions. And when we’re outside our comfort zone, it’s where the magic happens.

It’s all the more reason to take a different route home from work. Or to learn a new skill. Or to discover a new culture. Or to travel to Thailand.


  1. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  2. We are waiting to welcome you ^_^

  3. First things first. Protect yourself. We all fall for the most outrageous lies when we’re strangers in a strange land. I oughta know – Hongkonger with a Chinese face and a Scottish accent in Bangkok.

    So long as you’re comfortable in your own skin, go wild.

  4. hey davey, you’ll be going alone? wow great
    i’ve been thinking about travelling abroad alone. But these things keep cross my mind: the language barrier, who will take my picture, what if i get lost, etc


  5. Traveling freed me of what was inside my head to what was inside my hart. I have just seeing you blog this morning for the firs time and i am blowing away. Your way of thinking I love and It’s going to help me and a million more.

  6. Really? I don’t know this before,thanks for sharing!
