When I finished college a few years ago, all my saving transferred themselves into tickets. Tickets for Europe. No job hunting yet. Europe first! I was two weeks in London, a week in Paris, a few day in Amsterdam. Then a long long time in Bangkok (my hometown), being poor . haha
One of japanese former prime ministers (I don’t remember his name now) was asked by the press why he chose to become a politician. He said when he graduated from college, he was completely clueless. Then he was encouraged to take a trip to Europe, take some time off and observe himself. He took a trip and gradually realized that he naturally pays attention to politics of every country visited. And that was exactly what he has chosen to do later in life. In this article I read, he persuaded every young japanese to go out and see the world outside (and inside). I am Thai, yet I take his word very seriously.
I was determined to see what I automatically go to or do during the trip. Exactly, sketching. During the trip, I realized how much I enjoy drawing. It was a big peace there to travel slowly, quietly, sketch and then sketch.
And here are what I had from that trip
I am a big fan of Hyde Park. I can be there all day long. In this picture, behind the trees was Princess Diana House, Kensington Palace.
Then I went to Bath and of course the unskippable Stonehenge
