The restlessness and the longing, like the longing that is in the whistle of a faraway train. Except that the longing isn’t really in the whistleâ€”it is in you.

I’m certainly guilty of being a restless individual. I love to be occupied and run from place to place because I want to touch and experience everything. It is an amazing world out there and I want to discover all of the new people and cultures that are part of it. I suppose that is why we travel at least once every two months. As I mentioned last week, I am in Bangkok to meet a good friend. I was only too happy to meet here because I haven’t been to this city in more than 10 years.
I want to see how the city has evolved in this time and also get to know it again. I hope that I am able to find a few restaurants that will become favorite restaurants and capture a few moments that define this city. We will certainly try to take the BTS train as often as possible and still aren’t sure whether we will get out of the city. But I think this trip will certainly satisfy my restlessness for some time!
Have a lovely week!
