Hi there,

Time for part three of the Happy Challenge. This time it is all about making your dreams and wishes visual. With this challenge I decided to focus on what my dreams and goals are right now and a little bit for the future but not for my whole life. I guess I like changes and therefore nothing is determined yet as where I will eventually end up haha.

So let’s make it visual!

Travel planning dreams: Thailand

Hi lovely followers,

As you might know I love travelling. During the summer of 2012 I went to Singapore and Indonesia and I had the time of my life. In Indonesia I went to Manado, West Papua, Bali and Java and so I saw a lot of different things. It really was an amazing experience and if it depends on me I would love to see more of Asia! 

A couple of alumni from my education are now on backpacking trips and I have seen so many beautiful pictures from their trips. I can’t wait to plan an go on a new trip myself! 

One of the countries I would really like to visit is Thailand. This country has so much to offer if you ask me. Gorgeous sandy beaches, tropical islands, gorgeous nature, amazing Buddhist temples and building and of course a wonderful culture. 

I love planning trips, even before I even bought a ticket to go somewhere. Today I am giving you a little bit of insight in what I would like to do should I go to Thailand someday (which is hopefully soon haha).

During a holiday I want to be able to relax but I also want to see as much as possible. Besides that I really like interaction with local people. 
On my trip through Indonesia I actually stayed with locals most of the time. I know that in Thailand you have some home stay’s. While staying in these kind of accommodations you not only get to know the host or home owner but you also get a great sneak peek in the normal and daily life of a local. Very interesting and it might let you look at a country really different.

Besides interacting with locals I of course would also like to see the touristic attractions and not to forget, the hidden pearls only the locals know about. 
For example I would love to visit Bangkok and see all the different temples! And in Chiang Mai I would love to visit a elephant farm or sanctuary, check out the waterfall, see the temples and so on. Travel to me is more than just relaxing, for me it is also learning from different cultures and getting to know new people. wallpaper thailand island beach

When checking out things to do in Thailand I found a website whose focus it is to let tourists meet locals, learn from them and hang out together. Check out some of the cool tours with locals in Thailand. The opportunities are pretty huge.

I already imagine myself chilling at the waterfall together with some fun locals.
