This is for You, Untraveller!

“Travelling is rebellion in its purest form”, says a Pinterest-worthy quote.  Couldn’t you agree more? Although, there will always be someone who can honestly admit that he or she loves the daily grind, wouldn’t it be nice to just get away from all these boring routines?  Take yourself far, far away or not too far…

Thailand: Pattaya

It was seven-ish and I was sitting in a pleasant-enough room overlooking the front entrance to the pub above which I had just moved in. The pub was the Pig and Whistle on Soi 7 in Pattaya. Across the lane was a big hole, which they were hoping to construct a hotel in and next door to that, right opposite me, was a tiny bar with one lady sitting on a stool outside it. Not that there was a wall there, it was open on two sides. The Soi was nice and quiet, I thought. I also thought that I might go and sit in that little bar and talk to that woman, if my friend was late, because I would definitely see him arrive from two metres away, the width of the Soi.
