24/30 – Thailand through his lens

Thailand through his lens

I have never met Chris of Christao408 dot com but for a year I’ve been seeing some of his adventures, some of the food he’s eaten and his slice of Thailand through his lens via his website.

Thailand is one of those countries I want to visit; the cultures, the food, the architecture and the people. My good friend of 18 years parents-in-law have a ministry working within the red light district and with the women who are leaving prostitution, but my liking of Thailand goes back to when I was younger and I would read National Geographic voraciously, not only the new ones that came in every month but the older ones I would buy pretty much bulk at garage sales.

Chris’ perspectives are very much a-day-in-the-life and I like that, and with it being a blog primarily about his life in Thailand I get a bit of a grasp of a culture that is unfamiliar to me, it broadens my worldview. The world is quite a large place but in the age of the internet it can seem so small and at times personable because of the words and photos of others that gives me an idea what life is like from where they’re from, and I definitely appreciate that.

Until I get to traveling to new and different places I’m going to have to enjoy the world through other people’s words and photos, and when I do I will be sure to return the favor to others.

A bad case of wanderlust (thanks a lot National Geographic!)

I haven’t done much traveling outside the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Oh sure I’ve been to nearly all 50 states, but growing up reading National Geographic sure did a number on sparking my desire to see the world.

Here’s some things I want to see in real life:

The Cliffs of Dover

The Taj Mahal

The Swiss Alps

Petra

The Sphinx and Pyramids in Egypt

The Salt Flats

Where do you want to travel?
