In the fall of 2012 I went to Thailand. This was my first time out of the continent (North America). Needless to say I was very happy and nervous to go. I went to Thailand to volunteer with a NGO that works with hill tribes in the northern parts of country. My time with the NGO was great because it showed me parts of Thailand that I would have not seen otherwise, as well as teaching me more about the county. Most of my time in Thailand was spent volunteering, but I did spend some time exploring other parts of the north. Thailand was a great first stop out of North America and it made me want to travel and see more of Asia. Here are a few photos of my time in Thailand.
