My Next Adventure // Thailand!

Headed to Thailand // Do You Have Any Recommendations?

Remember my solo trip to Stockholm & Copenhagen over the winter? Well I’m back at it again, this timeĀ I’m headed to Asia in a few weeks for a solo adventure in Thailand. I’m still in the process of planning out final details but will be spending 10 days there and will be staying in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket and the Phi Phi Islands – it’s going to be a really interesting mix of spots, from big city streets to island relaxing, and I could not be more excited.

In my opinion, there’s no better way to recharge, get inspired and learn about yourself than traveling solo and while I’m expecting this trip to be significantly more challenging than Scandinavia, I know it’s going to be a true adventure. Since I’m still figuring out what to do, see and eat during my time in Thailand, I wanted to check in with all of you – have you ever been? What were some of your favorite spots? Any tips or things I shouldn’t miss?

Stay tuned for photos and Instagram Stories galore at the end of the month when I leave and a full trip recap on the blog after.

  • You are so adventurous! Traveling that far and that long alone would really scare me! I love your sense of adventure, it’s so fun to see! I’m sure you will plan an amazing trip and have the best time!! Can’t wait to see where you end up and what you end up doing!

    • Thanks, lady! I’m really excited for the new challenge that Asia will bring. Stay tuned ;)

    This trip sounds amaaaazing! I’ve always wanted to go to Thailand! You’ll have a blast. I’m so curious how you’re able to travel so much with work? Does your company have unlimited vacation time?

    • Great question! We don’t have unlimited PTO but our unused days do roll over – I knew I wanted to travel a lot this year so I saved days last year and planned out my time off at the beginning of the year (before I had any actual trips planned). A lot of my trips have been pretty short (long weekend type trips using 1-2 days) and I try and travel around holiday weekends so I’m able to get an extra day away without dipping into PTO (this Thailand trip will be the week before Labor Day so I have that Monday off as a bonus day). It really helped to map out the year ahead of time and request time off far in advance, THEN track flight prices and plan trips (red eye flights are also really helpful for traveling without extra days off). A little strategy upfront goes a long way!

        So smart! I do NOT plan ahead, wind up taking off random Fridays and then have no time for real vacations! Haha. Something to work on! :) Love you and your blog!

        • Thanks so much, Jess! Working on a blog post soon on finding cheap travel / making travel accessible so stay tuned there ;)

    I love that you travel alone! So inspiring. I definitely need to do that more- this year has been a LOT of change (both good and bad) and I think I could use a reset of my own.

    My coworker just went to Thailand earlier this year and loved it. I know you’re going to have a blast! Can’t wait to hear all about it :)

  • You’re going to love Thailand! So fun to do it solo, kind of envious actually. I need to do a real solo trip one day. I’ve always just done a day or two here and there.
    Chiangmai was hands down my favorite. We did a cooking class outside the city that was amazing. My favorite memory next to meeting rescued elephants. I did a post on all the things we did if you want to check it out!
