Final Adventures & Farewells

Hey guys! Finally arriving in Bangkok after our long haul home. We have gotten to our hotel bright and early, before anything is really even open! This was our final day together so there was nothing really planned. Some taking the day to shop, others catching up on some sleep.

Apart from that a small group of us headed back to BDK mall in Bangkok. That's the 8 tiered mall, filled with anything and everything you could possibly want! A few of us guys had even gotten custom tailored shirts for our last big dinner together. 

Later that night everyone was getting all dressed up for the first time since we've all been together. Everyone looked incredible! This was no fancy burger joint we were headed to by any means. Tonight we were headed to Thailands tallest building for a massive buffet dinner. The food was incredible, and we were easily the best looking crowd there. Enjoying our final meal together we reminisced of our favourite memories our LBW family had created. We were no longer a group of friends, we were a newfound family. Over the past 6 weeks I've seen tears of joy and tears of sadness; only bringing us closer together. At the end of our meal, our tour guide Sam shared a poem that he had written for us. Including a special piece for each and every one of us, it was incredibly well written! We also headed up to the top floor for some photos! This was the outer ring that revolved to give a full 360 degree view of Bangkok! 

LBW

For the past few days we all kept up talking how big of a night our last night in Bangkok was going to be. All this build up and excitement, however there was a major flaw to this plan. It was very coincidentally "Buddhist holy day". This is a once a year holiday in which out of respect for the religion, the sale of alcohol is strictly prohibited. This meant any bar or club on Koh San Road was closed for the night. Trying to make the best of the situation we found a small bar to drink at after the clock struck midnight. Enjoying a few last buckets together and getting all our last laughs out, we stayed up until almost 5. As the morning came, me and my roomie Joel awoke many times to fare our last goodbyes to most of our LBW fam; we might as well have slept in the lobby that night. Many hugs, tears and hard goodbyes later, only 5 of us remained. The hardest goodbye came later that evening. Saying farewell to my tour guide Sam, and my roommate Joel. It was now on to new adventures as I was headed to Cambodia and then elsewhere.

LBW showed me a new perspective to travel that I never knew I would love so much. The people, the places, the energy. From my personal experience, my LBW trip greatly surpassed my expectations I had before leaving home. Personally I would recommend an experience of this sort to anyone and everyone I know; LBW has given me the most positive travel experience I have yet. With that being said I am really grateful for anyone who checked out my blogs while I journeyed through Thailand. If any of you have any questions about any of my adventures or want to hear more elaborately about something, shoot me an e-mail! There are a ton more stories but I had to keep in censored: Bruiz777@yahoo.ca

Ohh and I wanted to give a huge shoutout to 2 special people: my tour guide Sam, and my roomie Joel! Thanks for showing me the ropes along the way and being older brothers to me. It wouldn't have been the same without you fellas.
