After a 22 hour flight. I am finally home! I’m very exhausted and jet lag already. Stepping into the cold weather in New Jersey, it amazes how I was in Thailand not long ago, enjoying the beautiful heat, wind, food, and culture. The two weeks spent in Thailand flew by incredibly fast. Studying abroad in Thailand had exceeded my expectations and stepping on Thailand land drew my nervousness in beging in a new country right away. To witness and take part in the cultural activities of Thailand was a blessing, that I hope everyone gets to experience. The time went so fast, but we did so much! Thailand has forever a special spot in my heart. We traveled to different regions in Thailand, where we got a different perspective on how people live in Thailand and the agricultural practices. Agriculture runs very deep in Thailand, that without it I dont think it would what it is. Even though we went to several regions there is one thing that remained unchanged. Their deep passion and admiration for Buddha and the King. I thought it was marvelous to see this wherever we went and I believed the people and climate of Thailand is so peaceful because of their passion and faith towards Buddhism. I want to thank Rutgers Global study abroad for granting me a scholarship and Dr.Matthews for giving me the opportunity to visit Thailand This trip has enhanced my love for traveling and learning even more. Without them and the staff of Mahidol University, this trip would not have been possible. To those who are applying next year, I can’t recommend this trip enough. It will be your best time!
