Life Update | Thai Travels and Moving to Italy

Sawasdee ka! Hello! Ciao!

Wowzaaaaa. What a crazy couple of weeks! The last time I posted I was preparing to leave my placement in Thailand to go on a two-week holiday around the south. It is now a few weeks on and I am in Italy on my year abroad! I left Thailand on the 13th September and had a short yet sweet time at home before departing again for Italy on the 19th.  So much has happened and I’m really upset I was unable to blog during my travels- but it really was impossible to do so when staying in hostels, keeping up with a huge group of friends and planning (and living) adventures every second of the day. And that’s not even including the amount of time spent downing dodgy Thai cocktail buckets!

So seeing as travel blogging is supposedly my thing, I have clearly been doing a pretty crap job of it recently. During my short 6 days at home between countries, I had a mountain of unpacking, washing and re-packing to do, as well as catching up with family and friends, and celebrating my 22nd birthday on the 16th! And now I find myself in a beautiful Italian apartment in Siena, struggling to decide what amazing experiences to tell you about first. After deliberating over this issue whilst drinking a €1.50 bottle of red (#studentlife), I have decided to fill you in on my Italian year-abroad journey whilst it’s still a hot topic- much like the men all around me. During this time, I will also prepare the tales of the tens of Thai sunsets and cocktails that I endured, all with the hope to inspire you to take the journey to beautiful Koh Tao, advise you to not get pickpocketed at the full moon party in Koh Phangan (like I did), and not to stay in certain dodgy hostels in Bangkok.

I promise to get my backside into gear ASAP because I hate not having documented certain things for my own records, and not only to tell my nearest and dearest readers about my unfortunate encounters and incredible confronts. Until then, you can gawp at some of my favourite sights from my journeys.

**Oh, and to those of you who followed my daily posts during my teaching placement, thank you for reading and giving your support because it was definitely more time consuming and difficult than I initially expected daily blogging would be. However, I did come runner up in the British Council blogging competition which made my efforts worthwhile. Especially the prize of a fake BOSE speaker from the market which speaks in a hilarious voice every time "the bluetooth dewiz is connect-edd successfullayy" and makes my day every time I hear it.

Ciao, a presto!
