Hitchhiking in Northern Thailand

March 19, 2019

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Been in Thailand for almost a week now in the city of Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand, the people here are very friendly, I got picked up twice by people offering me a ride while I was walking on mountainous roads. I can tell crime rates here are very low as people leave their helmets unattended with their parked motorbikes, as well as leaving bottles of water on tables in restaurants.

It’s taking me some time to adjust to no longer working a 9-5, suddenly. I have so much free time and the tourist feeling is subsiding for the time being as I’ve seen whilst I’ve wanted to see for the time being in Chiang Mai. I’ll still be in the city for about another week and I’ll focus on writing my next book with this downtime. I sometimes think and contemplate on whether I made the right choice during this adjustment period, but then I remind myself: If I stayed in Reno, I definitely would be unhappy, and the less conventional path I’ve taken right now, that sense of fulfillment is up to me to seek out.
