Overwhelmed really.

Bangkok was terrifying at first. Overwhelming. Within the first hour I thought I had made the biggest mistake. Traffic craze. Motorcycles riding next to you on the pavement as if they were pedestrians. Red traffic lights being treated as mere suggestions. The full chaos of it all. So I went to sleep.

When I woke up I thought I'd grow a pair. I got a taxi to democracy monument. From there I walked around Bangkok, and slowly but surely learned about its transport network and how to navigate the place. Suffice it to say that on my second day in Bangkok I was zipping from attraction to attraction. Good times.

From there I got the train to ayutthaya. In evening I got a boat ride to the temples off the island. Truly stunning. Today I hired a bicycle and I rode around the whole Island to different temples. The past couple of days have truly been amongst the best in my life.

Feeling independent and shizzle. Already I've met the most fantastic people over fizzing local beer and I couldn't feel happier. I've lost my way, I've found my way and I've been appreciating a culture I'm utterly unfamiliar with in glorious sunshine.

I'm confident my positivity will continue.
