Day 75 of my Southeast Asia Trip
Today I won’t be able to write a diary entry as I don’t think I’m going to have any internet. I’m off on an overnight trip into Khao Sok National Park. I didn’t want to slip up on posting a daily blog already so have decided to use today as an opportunity to reflect.
Five weeks ago I was in the south of Cambodia, on the way to the island of Koh Rong Sanloem. I’d had a rough few days and decided that I wanted to cut my trip short. I made a loose plan and concluded I would be home by mid July.
Yesterday I realised that if I’d gone ahead with that I’d be sat at home right now. I wouldn’t have made it to the beautiful national park I’m at now. I wouldn’t even have seen south Thailand. I definitely wouldn’t have done Laos as thoroughly as I did. I wouldn’t have met many of the people I have done in the past five weeks.
I have to say as well, those last 5 weeks have been the most life changing. I’ve dealt with so many emotions I didn’t know I had the capability of dealing with by myself. I’ve definitely proved that I can be there for myself, pick myself up and cry to no one but myself in the mirror.
I’m keeping this one relatively short and sweet, but here’s some pictures of things I’ve done recently which have made me thankful I didn’t leave.
