  • I was invited by the Thai government to explore the rice culture in Thailand and visited a rice field where I got to try planting and harvest rice and then enjoy a rice themed feast! This was part of the Think Rice Think Thailand Champaign.

                                          First time my husband and I had a real papaya salad outside Thailand and we weren't expecting it to be legit so it nearly blew our heads off - not just the spice, either. The flavour is overwhelming and just hits every part of your senses. Real Thai food is amazeballs.

                                                          This episode made my soul smile. I love to be able to see people experience other cultures, because I will likely never get to myself, though I would love to so much. I've always had a deep seated desire to travel, but never had the opportunity to, even where I live. The furthest I've ever traveled is Florida (from Texas).
                                                          Thank you to Mikey Chen, and the other Youtubers I watch who travel - your documentation of your trips allows me to experience travel vicariously.

                                                                                            But the way you pronounce Chiangmai (chiang-mai) and longan (long-gan) makes me feel uncomfortable 😂
