Well, I made it by myself: Vietnam, Thailand. It seemed pretty much amazing trip until I recognized my money worth $600 was stolen. It happened in the night bus from bangkok to chiang mai. The moment I recognized was only few minutes from when I left the bus and took a local taxi(tuk tuk). My other valuable belonging with my money was gone. I still have my left adventure to go to Laos and Cambodia and not ready to go home yet. My name is Narae Choi. A 23-year old South Korean girl traveling all around the world. I have been to Europe, Egypt, India, Nepal and etc. So far, I did what I could do my best to save for this trip such as part-time job in japanese restaurant, English tutoring, helper in wedding halls and so on. And now I am here in Thailand caught in worries for continuing my trip. I didn't come here in Thailand or any other country to just stay and whine about my loss but to explore, feel and grasp into the life of locals. I'm not here to only have fun but also to learn and be better of myself. Im here to discover myself my own brokenness and receive healing. And so far this adventure has just done that. Why do I need to travel around the world to learn that? Because the traveling isn't just a exploring trip; it's a discipleship education. I get to be involved in society. They make me think and learn to be better of myself. For example, I get to know how I can be such a small person with little egyptian boy who I thought was trying to sell stuff to me. No. He gave me a necklace and said "It's for your smile." Even when I tried to give me money later, he ran away from me to make sure he really didn't want the money. The little boy made me to think. What made him happier was my smile not the money. I felt so bad and got to think to be happy you don't need too much. When you think of it, actually small things really brightens your day. Afterwards, I felt I can be better than myself now and did that! Or I got the learn difference between Europe when I was in Denmark. A girl I met was half Italian and half Dannish. Being raised in Italy made her life style as Italian but working in Denmark made her recognize her life style does not fit in the country anymore. Previously I thought Europe as a one. But I get to know how my indifference was such a huge mistake. When it comes to Korea, China, Japan or any other Asian countries, I notice there is a big difference in culture. But I was little to see that with Europe. By experiencing, I also got to grasp the people and the culture better for understanding. Please help me remain in this great place of growth. I've come so far already in learning more about everything. I'm growing in understanding the gifts of what world has to bring. I've already found learning and healing from past I didn't realize it was there. I need to raise $600 in order to remain on this trip to learn more about the world what God has given us. Thank you all my supporters! I wih you a Happy New Year all the way from Thailand! All the Love!
