I always wonder what it’s like to have a career as a traveller that allows one to hop on a plane and fly around the world as easy and frequent as taking a bus. To casually cross countries like moving across buildings. I wonder how those people feel to have their realities shift ever so often. Do people get use to it eventually? I’ve lived in Bangkok for almost the entire 21 years of my life but I still felt slightly dazed and jet lagged returning here after being away for a year. Maybe it was the sudden change in climate, from Brisbane’s cool winter breeze to Bangkok’s blazing summer sun or the three hours delay in time zone? I don’t really know. Still, this slight daze and jet lag doesn’t stop me from waking up at 6am and hitting the Spring Epicurean Farmers Market at 8am the very next day. Such was my love for good food and markets 😀
I don’t usually consider myself a spontaneous person. I have a huge calendar plastered on my bedroom wall where I make plans days and sometimes even months in advance. I like knowing roughly how my day would unfold and what to expect. But I have to admit I do get a rush of adrenaline every time I decide to do something unplanned and spontaneous. Plus I think the best memories I’ve made are usually from those spur of the moment decisions. Perhaps it’s a sign that I should forget the calendar and loosen up a little? Henceforth, this Sunshine Coast road trip.
