For obvious reasons I cut my trip to China short. I mean they closed the great wall. But that’s OK because Thailand is an amazing country and now I have a lot to see. My return flight is supposed to go back to China for a day or two but I’m going to trying to get it diverted to South Korea. I will see. But for now monks, mangoes,monasteries and madness. Today I got to see the world famous lounging Buddha and take a long tail boat ride to some of the more rural areas. I saw some lizards the size of alligators and have had the most amazing food. #GoodTimes#NomadicNick#bangkok#watphotemple#buddha#innerpeace#thailand 🇹🇭 #nextstopthebeach#coronafree
Florida was the first place I lived outside of my home state and I lived there for 10 years! The first place where my family wasn't around to help when I needed it. I was constantly taken out of my comfort zone but from that…I GREW. .
I still remember my first days there where I mustered up enough courage to drive around by myself. My siblings gifted me a Garmin GPS for my wedding; it was one of those huge ones because they were still brand new at that point…I thought I was so cool! 😂😎 I drove around aimlessly but the feeling of accomplishment came over me...it was the little things. I knew I would be alright.
I will never forget those first few days because I’ve come SUCH a long way from being that shy timid little girl that got married at 23. I grew as a human being, a wife, a daughter-in-law, and engineering professional and eventually became a mother! .
Some people look back and think high school/college years were the best years of their lives, but that’s not the case for me. For me…it was THOSE 10 defining years. It was the countless great times with great friends that I will hold onto for a lifetime. It was many late nights, belly laughs and more hangovers than I’d care to admit. 😆
Where were you in your 20s and how did that define you?
