Video: Thailand Solo

Posted on 24 May 2017

I had been itching to travel to Thailand for a while but had never followed up.  This was partially because the timing wasn't right and partially because I couldn't find anyone to go with me.  It's always very easy to find a reason not go for it.

One day I realized it had been over a year since I had begun fantasizing about Thailand.  Things had been so hectic at work I had completely lost track of the time.  I knew life would pass me by if I wasn't careful.  I found some time in my schedule in January, and while I couldn't find a travel companion, I decided I could go it alone.

I am an outgoing guy but the thought of traveling to the other side of the globe without knowing a soul was still a little nerve racking.  However, once I arrived I found it almost impossible not to meet other like minded travelers.  Planned activities and common rooms in hostels made breaking the ice easy.  Once, I showed up to a restaurant to eat alone only to have some young Australians beckon me over to their table to join them.

This video is a snapshot of my adventures.  It was one of the greatest experiences of my life and it is safe to say I found my inner Mana Loa.  I hope you enjoy it and decide to join me in my search for the Great Power!
