My first solo travel adventure turned destination quarantine in Thailand has led and is still leading to many adventures and lessons learned. Beyond the usual lessons of 'what/what not to bring', 'how to prepare for long term solo travel', and destination guides, there have been invaluable things I've learned about myself and, in turn, the world during these few months. I'm so grateful to be able to dive deeper in my understanding of how I perceive myself and the environment around me and the people that have assisted in my expansion.
Currently in 'destination quarantine', living in a bungalow on Thailand's second largest island.
Some of the other travelers I've met on the road have taken one of two options: return home or stay here in paradise.
My choice was easy - ride it out.
I remember the first flight I ever took alone: freshly 19, working a minimum wage job and purchased a 'Name Your Own Price' ticket off an online site headed out to the Wild Wild West Coast - California.
