It is amazing to look out my window every morning and see the snow capped "beginning" Alps. Vicenza is a beautiful city, enriched in culture. Located in the province of Veneto, which is the region famous for the best food in the world. In one direction we are an hour from the beach, in the opposite we are an hour from the mountains for skiiing. This is truely a magical place!

Live in Another Country, is this something I've done before but it only lasts for a month. 

Though I've been to China a several time, this time was different. 

Talking about this I'd have to try to use my brain so much to remember what I've done but.. well. It's all started when I was in the break of grade 5 to 6,  my father wanted me to know Chinese since we're Chinese family but I can't speak Chinese, can't read or write but hey, I can understand what you Chinese are saying. Although I can understand Chinese but the skill wasn't enough. So he decided to send me and my brother, Vichakorn to China and we'll to stay there for a month! 

Things that came to my head at that moment was. 

  1. The bahtrooms are rough, how am I gonna survive? 
  2. I'm leaving on 1st July but hey! 4th July is my birthday. Dont I get to celebrate?
  3. Living apart from your family at very young age is .. scary. 
  4. I was only 11 years old! I can't travel alone.
  5. My brother was 10.. 
  6. I can't cook.

And alot more list of things that gonna be struggled me. 

Things started to get fun when I stepped on China airport it was.. WTF There's no one I can communicate with and I only know English and Thai at that time. My english was bad too so the only language I'm fluent is Thai and it's hard living in the country where they speak completely different from what you know. My aunt came to pick up us and drop us in the condo where there's a security guard and all those password thing but .. the password was 8888, 4 numbers according to what building you're in :-l but the surroundings was so good, the park was near, the malls are also near, the basketball court and the skateboard place too so actually that break for me was just me doing all the excercise. I don't really get to practice Chinese that much because my dad hired a babysitter to take care of me and my brother. She was so good but I forgot her name, it was something I teased her all the time. Lol. She took us to the amusement park, to the beach, to the malls, or even the historical places. It was so fun but yeah, she could speak english so the only language I get to practice was English lol. A great news is I came home fit, I lose weights, I get muscles and even abs hahaha but yeah it's all gone when you're home. :-l 

My brother and I, we get closed. At first, I cried every night before I could sleep, my brother was the only one to comfort me even when I'm 1 year and 11 months older than him lol. We prayed together, we cooked together even he did the apple juice for me even though the kitchen turned out to be a completely mess. It was hell of the experiences I have. And this is where I learn to put family as your number one. Even though today.. 16/02/2015 I tried to recall the memory with Ed Sheeran's songs, my brother already passed away at the age of 15 when he passed due to leukemia. Cancer is a bitch belive me. 

In Loving Memory; Vichakorn Manitviroon 10th July, 2013.

During my "Sabatår", a year off after high-school untill you resume your education or decide to enter the job market. After working as a substitute teacher for 3 months, I left for an internship that I had applied for after have hearing about it through my father. I figured that I could work during the week and then at night go out and discover the city and in the weekends perhaps go see other cities nearby Bangkok.

This experience turned out to one of the most testing periods of my young life so far. Being dropped into a new country with a very unique culture far from ones own and with an entirely different work ethic than one that I had seen in any of my former jobs. They were very industrious often time working one or two hours overtime with out complaining and simply because they took pride in their workplace. While I was there I learned some Thai to try to dismantle the existing language barriers that a Dane has in a country where with a population with a finite English vocabulary but I must admit I could probably have made a greater effort. However the custom that you cannot discuss politics, society or personal life with people you aren't your family or life-long friends hampered the subjects that you could talk about when no customers needed to be served.

This however gave me a lot of time with own thoughts. I changed my desired field of study while I was there and I came to savor my friendships and my family back home. Could I go back in time I would probably have made a greater effort to hang-on to the co-workers and friends I made in Thailand but this was a tumultous time in my life so I had to make sense of myself and who I was. Working abroad gave me a great opportunity to blossom socially although I perhaps due to my age was a bit inhibited socially.

But I Partied on Khao-San Road, Learned to Cook Thai Food, Joined a Kareoke Party, Biked Through the Slums of Bangkok, Partied on Koh Samet, Dined at Streetkitchens, Lived on my Own, Made Friends in Other Countries, Worked for a Five-Star Hotel and many other exciting things, so all I can say is go for it.

Been living in the US for the past almost 5 years now. Came to the States in September of 2010, went to high school, now I'm in college. Always been on campus. Hopefully I'll experience what it is like to live on my own in an apartment, which does not belong to a college! With all the responsibilities -- bills to pay, etc.

I came to Australia as backpacker on January and I'm still here. My purpose is to stay here until end of next year which means 2 years in another country (and sooo far away from Finland). When I came here I didn't speak good english but now it's been getting sooo much better. This journey has taught me lot of things about myself and life altogether. Living the dream.
