Thailand is a country I will return to again. And again. It’s simply wonderful in every regard — from the people to the food to the beaches to the jungles and everything in between.

Recently, I was feeling very nostalgic about Thailand, so I decided to post 16 of my favourite photos — my favourite memories. Because that’s what they are… memories. Each photo represents an emotion and a moment in time that meant something to me — whether exciting, serene, profound or bizarre.

Enjoy!

scooter

This photo captures the devil-may-care attitude we had while roaming the islands on beat-up old scooters.

toilet

Our bathroom at the first real beach bungalow we rented. Jump into the backpacker lifestyle with both feet, we did…

wildman_ko_chang

I met a lot of unique and interesting people on Ko Chang, but this guy — a camera-shy Frenchman — was the most eclectic by far.

Mummified_monk

The Mummified Monk of Ko Samui. When someone asks you if you want to see a dead body, usually the answer is “no…”

tsunami

This empty field was once the site of a massive resort on Ko Phi Phi Don — before the tragic tsunami of 2004 took so many lives and caused so much destruction.

full_moon_party

Fuzzy memories from Ko Phangan’s legendary Full Moon Party.

buckets

Communal drinking at its finest with Thailand’s infamous Buckets.

longtail

The Longtail Boats of Ko Phangan. Our driver fell off the back…

treehouse_bar

The Treehouse Bar on Ko Chang remains my favourite Thai watering hole.

big_buddha

Ko Samui’s famous Big Buddha — iconic Thailand at its finest.

ko_san_road

Kao San Road, Bangkok. It gets even crazier at night…

eat_bugs

Eating bugs on the streets of Bangkok? Why not…?

bangkok_monks

I love the juxtaposition of Old versus New in this photo; traditional Buddhist Monks among the modernity of Bangkok.

bangkok_nights

A photo of myself and a man who I can only describe as the Coolest Guy in Bangkok.

pad_thai

My staple meal in Bangkok: street vendor Pad Thai… a great meal for less than $1 Cdn.

backpacker

This photo sums up my trip: backpacking, carefree and shirtless.
