This is originally from my previous facebook group ‘Brittany Goes Global,’ (wanna know how I got the blog name? ;)) in which I sent messages to friends about my travels with Global College’s CRC Program through Taiwan, Thailand, India, and Turkey. This post was not originally associated with this blog, but I have put it up here in the correct date. As you can see, my writing is not quite up to par with what it is now 🙂 But I thought you readers would still find it informative and entertaining.

Hello from Chiang Mai, one of the most amazing places on earth! (For those who don’t know- and don’t worry I didn’t either- Chiang Mai is in Northern Thailand). Mira and I took a flight in today and entered ‘Old Town’- it’s the central part of Chiang Mai that’s surrounded by a moat. Yeah, I’m living around a moat, don’t worry about it. But seriously I might has well be living like a queen anyway, our hostel is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. I mean…I have never stayed somewhere so nice. I have my OWN room with a cozy queen bed and a wicker desk and wardrobe, my own huge bathroom and a balcony, plus a fridge and a TV. Plus WIRELESS internet (novel concept in Thailand), and our hostel has a kitchen! Life can’t get more amazing. I seriously look around at my surroundings and always wonder how I got so lucky.
PLUS the area around Chiang Mai is so awesome. There are tons of restaurants everywhere that serve GOURMET food for super cheap- Mira, Heidi, and I celebrated the beginnings of Chiang Mai with chang, bruschetta, and vegetable tempura (for 3 dollars- not bad!)- not to mention the amazing dinner I ate too- and we wandered around the area and popped into a photography shop, hung out with some locals and played guitar into the night. It’s so peaceful and quiet around here also. I seriously feel like royalty. Can I never leave, please?

But we did leave Bangkok with a bang(….kok), and it was definitely the best Halloween I’ve ever had. Last night Mira, Adam, Amy and I dressed up in halloween costumes (I was a hula girl, but Adam took the cake- he was a ‘sexy’ sheep? Bahhhhh!) Khaosang Road was PACKED with people, bars were open on every corner with music blasting- we danced on stage and about a million people came up to us asking for photographs- it was one of the most fun nights I’ve ever had, and hanging out with an Angel, Frida Kahlo, and a sexy sheep was the icing on the cake. Thailand is- amazing. I love it here. I love traveling. I love my life.

Check out this video taken by MTV covering Khaosang Road on Halloween. You’ll see Frida Kahlo, a sheep, and a hula girl dancing onstage 🙂

Much love,

Brittany
