I saw an ad for elephant rides, so I figured, why not? Not exactly something I can do in most places.
So after transferring in Bangkok, I finally set foot on foreign soil. Koh Samui thirteen years ago wasn’t the island it is today. It was still quite under-developed, though even today it’s still relatively serene compared to say, Phuket.
I was twenty-one years old the first time I traveled abroad.
