Nostalgia has hit me while talking with my friend at this late hour and so I will jot this one for posterity.
It was July 2014 and I had just got out of bad relationship – a sucker of a company I worked for. And I started planning to go to Russia and live a long, boring but happy life. Per plan I started to read the language and take classes. Pretty cool.
But then one month out of a job and I feel I need to do something more. Well, what is more? I packed my bags in last August and went to Goa for a week. Not bad. But then the post-holiday remorse set in as soon I landed in Delhi. Sitting at my laptop late evening I started looking at other traveller’s blogs and voila! Thailand. Such a lovely place, I thought. Next moment I found myself booking tickets and hotel. Holy smoke….never do important things after 2200 hours because it is like being sucked into bad clubs 😉
Next morning I woke up with the fear that I will hate myself for booking expensive last minute tickets and hotel…but on the contrary I was feeling all pumped up. Hmm interesting for a man who has taught / helped people how to be smart with their personal and business money.
Evening I was at the airport and then I realised, nobody in India knows I am going to Thailand. Wtf right? I am a truly glo-cal person now. Wow! So I called my mum and she was happy as ever and ready with last minute mom-speak.
But the best part was when my father called my local number and asked me how are things in Moscow. And I was like “But I am in Thailand.” For better reason, I guess my mother did not relay my exact travel coordinates to my father. That was the moment I realised the true feeling of being in my personal <<Hangover Part 4>>
I had earlier posted some travelogue about my Thailand travels here:
