Win a Trip to Thailand through Amazing Dream Journey!

When I hear the word Thailand, a few thoughts come into mind: Buddhism, diverse culture, vibrant lifestyles, and beautiful sceneries. Thailand has always been very exotic to me, I always hear about how it’s a country many foreigners want to visit and/or even live in, and someday it’s a place I hope to explore myself as well.

My interest in Thailand first piqued when my boyfriend, Gab, traveled with his family to Bangkok a few years back. He raved about the beauty of Thailand, and how it was a place he didn’t mind visiting again. He took some photos and shared them with me when he came home. I guess it’s true what they say, that you can fall in love with the world through the eyes of the person you love ;-)

Currently the Tourism Authority of Thailand is holding a campaign activity where all you can create your own 3 days/2 nights dream trip itinerary for two and share it on your social media sites. The selected winners will take a trip to Thailand based on your selected theme.

There are 6 themes to choose from: The Royal Project Culinary, Luxurious Honeymoon, Well-Being Trail, Life on the Green, Splendid Yacht, and Extravagant Eco Shell.

I joined the activity and chose The Royal Project Culinary theme because when I travel, I really love getting to know a place’s culture, and as a visual person I love beautiful nature/sceneries. The Royal Project Culinary originated through the royal project foundations, founded to solve problems of deforestation, opium and poverty in Thailand. Nowadays, these projects have become beautiful tourist attractions in Thailand and are not to be missed.

It took me a while to pick what places to visit because I didn’t want a jam-packed itinerary per day. When I travel, I like to take my time and savour the moments in each place. After much deliberation, I finally came up with the places I want to visit should I win:

The Royal Project culinary offers diverse tourist attractions and I was able to keep it balanced with a mix of nature and wildlife, historical monuments, and arts & crafts. Just looking at this itinerary gets me excited, with high hopes of winning too. :-)

It’s an easy campaign to take part in and you can do it in five minutes or even less. I took long but only because I really thought about the places I wanted for my itinerary. :-P

To join and create your own Amazing Dream Journey itinerary for Thailand, all you have to do is visit http://amazingstories.tourismthailand.org/ and follow the simple instructions. I would also love to see what themes you picked or what your itinerary looks like, so please share them with me! :-)

Daily Life Through My Huawei P9 Leica Lens

I have to admit that I’m prone to falling into routines that eventually drive me a little bit crazy. Routines that last a month or two eventually become boring and loathsome to me; my blog name “Wild Spirit” isn’t just a name I picked out of no where, it’s two words put together that identifies me as a person. I am in need of constant change, be it big or small, and while that sounds like a good thing I see it as something that’s also my weakness. I dislike that I can be someone who can easily leave things behind, I can be flakey and indecisive, and sometimes my “wild spirit” is what causes strains in my personal life/friendships. It’s something I’m trying to work on.

Routines may get boring to me sometimes, but I’m reminded that stability is healthy. It helps me stay focused, disciplined and it actually gets me more productive. Since July, I’ve had a solid routine that’s involved five main things: me time (lots of it), French classes, time with Gab, doing some work and socialising with friends — quite honestly it’s one of the happiest I’ve been. Notice how being online isn’t even on here? It’s because I learned to disconnect and my “me time” is mostly spent just being by myself. In all honesty, there isn’t a true work/life balance right now since I don’t get to spend much time with family, but when you get older that stuff tends to become normal anyway.

I decided to document one day of my usual routine with my Huawei P9 (with Leica lens, yes that phone) because I missed posting personal blogs like this (and I know you guys miss it too) — Here’s to celebrating healthy routines and the mundane things in life:

MORNING:

A Day in my Life - Huawei P9 (1 of 1)First thing in the morning selfie. I had to. Remember my old posts on Tumblr? I was the queen of selfies, but back then I wasn’t very confident about posting my face without makeup on the internet. Nowadays, I don’t really care much for it. Continue Reading

Q&A: Pre-Marital Sex & the Best Advice My Parents Gave Me

You guys are awesome for sending in so much questions! They kept coming in while I was filming, but I didn’t mind. Definitely cured my boredom for an entire afternoon… But maybe I shouldn’t have filmed so late because it took me two hours and sunset actually reached me. Haha

Though this was tiring, you know, talking so much — I had fun. I always do. I love answering your questions! Let’s do this again some time! :-)

Photo Diary: The Fox & Bear Escape the City with Chevrolet Sail

Being both freelancers, Gab and I used to spend all our time together. It was easily achievable, between blog work and other social events — you could say it was an ideal situation being able to balance it all so effortlessly. But real life gets in the way sometimes, and the past 2 months have been incredibly full with Gab filming a new TV show (and soon will be shooting a movie) while I decided to continue with French classes, which easily take up half my entire week, and aside from that I’ve got work stuff going on too.

When Gab and I both have our weekends free, we take every opportunity we can to spend time together, have a nice little date, maybe a movie. A few weeks ago, Chevrolet informed us they were interested in lending us the Chevrolet Sail for a few days to do a test drive. Of course, we said yes. He was into cars and loved driving them, and I was into car rides and going places — it was a win/win situation for everyone.
