Coming Home

It’s weird. I thought it would be more strange coming home. I didn’t experience any jet lag and so far there has been minor culture shock. Either the culture shock is slowly going to set in, or I have successfully integrated the Thai attitude into myself. I’m hoping it’s the latter.

I’m taking a couple of weeks to catch up with friends and get settled before I make any big decisions on what I plan to do next. I have a few ideas but absolutely no solid plans. It’s nice to have a great void of unknown in front of me. I hate routine and if given the option to peer into my future, I would decline. I don’t want to know what’s coming and ruin the surprise. I also don’t want to fall into a lifestyle that will likely look the same 10, 15, and 20 years from now. BUT, a person’s gotta make a living. I’m not anxious yet but ask me again in a couple of weeks.

Now that I’m home and in a stable environment with internet access, I can catch up on my blogging. I already have a list of 15+ topics that I’d like to write about. Hopefully you’ll be seeing a wave of new stuff soon!

Carpe Diem.

    Hi Lindsey. I have just found your blog site for the first time, probably too late as you are now home from Thailand – you will have been very welcome to visit my adopted Thai family in Phu Noi, close to the Pranburi end of Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park. Please take a look at: or a site started just today if it is showing:

      Hi Nick,
      Thanks so much for the invite. If I were still there I would love to visit. I was only able to visit Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park for an afternoon so I didn’t get to see everything that it has to offer. Hopefully I will be able to return soon enough for a visit and if I do I’ll have to look you up. In the mean time, enjoy your time there! What an exciting place to make a home base 🙂
