I have been in Phuket, Thailand for a few days! My friend Emma and her family and friends were already coming to Thailand so they were kind enough to put me up in their 5 star hotel room. We are staying at the Hilton Arcadia Phuket Resort and Spa.
I planned my itinerary to Thailand because I could not pass up that opportunity and I was already traveling through Asia.
I have been to 4 countries in the past 1 1/2 months. It's just been overwhelming to experience so many cultures, languages, cuisines, religions, people and places back to back. It's fun, exciting, invigorating, thrilling, adventurous and educational while experiencing fatigue, homesickness and sometimes sadness all at once.
My emotions have been all over the place on this trip and my mind has reflected on so many different aspects of my life. From thoughts and memories of my mama and missing her to what path shall I take next in my career and other future endeavors. This is my first Christmas without her so I am fortunate enough to be spending it with friends. I am blessed.
