Travel Stories Week 50


What's your favourite place you have visited?

My favorite place that I’ve traveled was Thailand. It was my favorite place because I felt like it had the best of everything. Bangkok was a bustling city, Koh Phi Phi and Koh Phangnan had the beach and island life, while Kao Sok gave you jungle and mountain feels.

What’s the best thing you have seen while travelling?

The best thing I’ve seen while traveling were the sunrise hot air balloons in Cappadocia, Turkey. They’re so beautiful and a once in a lifetime opportunity. Even if you don’t go in a hot air balloon being able to see hundreds of balloons in a cotton candy sky is an unbelievable sight.

What’s your best travel story?

The best travel story I’ve had wasn’t truly my story, but I think it’s funny. My friends and I stayed in floating raft houses in Kao Sok national Park in Thailand. They’re houses floating in this national river, with 0 service and no electricity... a true digital detox. The houses had kayaks, paddle boards and board games to entertain yourself throughout the day. One of my friends decided to go out on the kayak and sunbathe. He ended up falling asleep and woke up an hour later, having drifted so far he could no longer see the houses. He was lost in the National Park for hours with no cell phone, watch or anything to help him. 7 hours later, after sending motor boats and multiple search teams, we found him on a small secluded island sunburnt and shoeless.
