  • I was invited by the Thai government to explore the rice culture in Thailand and visited a rice field where I got to try planting and harvest rice and then enjoy a rice themed feast! This was part of the Think Rice Think Thailand Champaign.

    Was this like an excursion trip that the government set up for you? it seemed like this entire thing had a schedule or an itinerary. is it possible for people to book this exact trip as well? Or is it something that only the government has invited you too and it is exclusive?

The flavour is overwhelming and just hits every part of your senses. Real Thai food is amazeballs.

I love to be able to see people experience other cultures, because I will likely never get to myself, though I would love to so much. I've always had a deep seated desire to travel, but never had the opportunity to, even where I live. The furthest I've ever traveled is Florida (from Texas).
