Buying a one way ticket to anywhere always brings anticipation and excitement, especially when it's on the other side of the world. My boyfriend and I decided we wanted to spend the majority of this year traveling through South East Asia, so we bought one way tickets leaving from Honolulu, HI to Bangkok, Thailand for January 21, 2014. We flew with no plans on when we were to come back. Stepping onto the Delta Airways, I knew my life was going to change forever, and I could not have been more excited. I know my life is destined for adventure and travel, that's why when my boyfriend and I first started dating, I knew it was something special since he felt that way too. We have many plans to travel together and after spending a year traveling with him, I know we are going to have many successful travel adventures. Upon arriving in Bangkok at midnight, we quickly grabbed a taxi and went to our hotel we had booked. This was the only night we had planned getting onto our flight, because we wanted to leave it up to spontaneity on where to go next. We got our hotel on Koh San Road late in the evening, after very obviously being ripped off by our taxi driver.
Finally, we took a taxi to the Bangkok Northern Bus Terminal and loaded our bags. While waiting to get on the bus, we met two nice couples and chatted up about our plans in Thailand. Little did we know how amazing Chiang Mai was and how it was going to impact our lives....There is more to come.
