Where am I going to start off my story..
I don’t know what was on my mind but I surely had the smile on my face going to Chiangmai, Thailand and when I was off home again, I was so sad. Hahaha………
I did not know that this felt like the biggest escapade of my life, maybe for now. I mean, hopefully there will be a lot of trips happening in my life. My one true dream is to just travel the whole wide world.
Leaving home with a smile on my face, it was surprising having enough sleep despite of my excitement that reached the sky or maybe even the galaxy but what do you know, I had complete sleep! Maybe. Enough. My first and last trip outside the country was eleven years ago, I think so, my parents were in lead and I just remember my eyes are half closed when we arrived at the airport. I just remember how my ears hurt. But this time, I was alone. I am alone going to an adventure and it depends on me on what will happen next. I came in and ha! Of luck, I only have to enter a tiny airport. I asked the guard what to do, I paid right away with the taxes, and checked in. It took me a while to stand there in line. Next in line was the immigration, wait for it. Here comes another story! I had basically no stamp on my passport, and crazy me I did not bring my old passport, but hello. There should be no questions asked. I am of legal age! I mean, that is what my parents told me. My sister traveled alone from Asia to USA at twelve years old. Yea, Inspiration. So, I had the letter and all, they checked my sisters records of going here at PH, she comes home every year then the guy was asking for more proof, He even told me it was for my protection if we were even close to each other enough. He asked a picture, and I had to go all the way upstairs just to log in my facebook account and get a picture of my family. Luckily, I have a copy at facebook! Then poof. Okay now, but in the middle of that, I was thinking to myself, If I don’t catch the plane now, what will happen to my whole summer? Sitting and laying all around the house? No. I will not let that happen! Thank God I got through!
I got the lucky seat, the window seat + the wing side seat. Taking off and seeing the clouds felt so real. I mean I appreciate it even more on my age. Good thing I had no company, well I had an American with me but there was one space of chair between us. Yay! I took a nap, could not help it. A little sleepy even though I had enough? sleep. Right when we landed, changed my time to BKK time. I was with Filipinos too. I came with them to get my baggage claim over by belt so far I do not remember. I have a lot of time to kill before my next flight so it was okay. Got through the immigration and all as fast as a bee. I found the Bangkok Airways lounge in no time, but I searched for it too. I thought the gate was with my ticket, but there was no gate in my ticket. I stayed for an hour I guess at the lounge. The gates were in front of the lounge, before I enter the lounge I asked a guy and he was a responsible looking man he was a staff which had the lists of the gates, and on how busy and responsible he looked, he gave me the wrong gate which is AA. My gate was A2A. I went back to the information center which made me go back twice, they were the girls I was asking for the lounge too. Good thing it was just in front of each other. I thank God for letting me not have fear for being alone in traveling. It was so fun, not scary at all. Not a brag or what, But it was not. I met a lot of friends at the airport, sadly I do not have a picture of them. Oh, i forgot. Every staff member I talked to at the aiport was so friendly! I had so much fun talking with them and just smiling around. Landed at Chiang mai and saw my sister waiting, Yay! Got there safe and sound.
