Getting Engaged in Pai, Thailand

I’m engaged! (Again…)

An "engagement" in Pai, Thailand.

Finally, the moment I’ve been waiting for my entire life happened (for the third time on this trip…): I got engaged!

First, there was my way-too-young-park-bench-romance in Turkey. Then there was the drunken English agreement in Vietnam. And now, my mojito-making Thai bartender in Pai.

I knew he was the one when he took took my hand, got down, and drew a ring on my ring finger. How could I say no? I’ll let you know the details of our wedding when we finalize a date. I think we can turn Almost Famous into a wedding venue…

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    Congratulations! Can’t wait to see the wedding ring he pulls out… wonder if it’ll be gold or silver!
