Most Memorable Travel Experience
Lipe island: I love that moment. This paradise gave me a chance to meet good friends!

Koh Pangan: My first solo trip and I really loved it, and trying to go there every year, cheers to my favorite beach "Tong Nai Pan".

Loas: I was very excited when the police caught my friend and I just because he played djimbe in public :O

USA: My first time in the US. Traveled alone from Thailand to visit my cousins. When landed in Chicago, I was detained at the US immigration for 4 hours. They took a photo of me and my fingerprints as if i kill somebody :S The thing was, the photo in the passport didn't look like me .. but that's really me! :S

Italy/England/Korea: I must go back! Love!

Trekking in Nepal: They said "Trekking can prove the relationship between you and your trekking partner". Forever friends or short time friends, now I already got the answer.

India: Ohhhh ... more than words!
Profile
I love traveling, it's a good break for my boring routine. Actually my job is fun, it's advertising but sometimes after months before the job kill us alive we really need a break

In my country, I love the beach at South of Thailand. My favorite beach is Koh Phangan, be there once a year for 7 years now - not for a fullmoon party but to the nice, quiet beach called Tong Nai Pan Yai. And the second one is Koh Lipe. Travel abroad? I can go anywhere but i hate the visa rule, too many documents to prepare - it takes time but lucky never got refused yet, hope never. I love the cold place, prefer less heat but if have to, it doesn't kill me. I like snow, beach, food, city, small town, field, mountain - all I think. It's nice to see new things, try new things and meet new people. I also love shooting pictures. It's a good thing to remind me when I'm older about who/when/where/how it was. Some photos remind me the moment that already forgot so i try to snap the good time as much as i can:)

I just set up and run my own digital ad-agency with a few friends this year and I thought i would not have a chance to travel like before but i was wrong. If you can manage time perfectly then nothing can stop you from traveling. Enjoy walking on the road everyone:)
