Stir fry (and corn) at the night market in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

The world’s your oyster.

What I ate in Thailand.

In Thailand I ate a lot of pad thai. A. Lot. Of. Pad. Thai.


And a lot of noodles in any way shape or form.


And a lot of random stir fries.


And green curry.


And fried rice.


And spring rolls.


And random snacks.


And fried chicken (which is everywhere).


And papaya salad.


One of my favorite things to eat was random fish from the street that cost about $1.


I even learned to cook Thai food in Chiang Mai

Sometimes I ate other Asian food.


And sometimes you just need some fruit.


Or a fruit shake.


Or ice cream.


Or weird flavored chips.


Sometimes I need to satisfy some of the western food cravings I’d been having.


Sometimes you just need something somewhat healthy. Like a salad.


Every so often I have breakfast.

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.

    This post makes me seriously hungry! Love that you love noodles & pad thai as much as we do. Looking forward to explore Indian food with you next month 🙂

    I love how one of them is labeled as “sweet something.” And no judging on the Pizza Hut. If you were on a 2 week trip, you probably shouldn’t do it. But you’ve been traveling for months, it’s totally understandable. And I’m jealous about the tacos and guacamole, looks yummy! I have to learn how to make my own Mexican food here.
