I'm flying to Thailand tomorrow to train for about 10 months. I really have no concrete plans, I just packed my mouthguard, shinguards, socks, boxers, laptop, camera and a couple of shirts. I'll be going by myself too since it seems as though most people are scared of the "unknown" and don't want to put themselves outside of their comfort zone. I understand how people find it to be scary but at the same time, it's a big world and we're only here once .. so .. f@ck it!
Anyway, I'll be hitting up a lot of the top gyms around the country and I'll be keeping a training log on here for you guys to read. I'll document the training (of course), but I'll also be documenting EVERYTHING else. If I see somethin' crazy goin on in the streets, I'll film it. If I see a group of money-hot Thai girls walkin' around, I'll film them. Heck, maybe I'll snap some pics of the more convincing ladyboys and post em' up here so you guys can play the "find the ladyboy" game. Test out your transexual detection skills .. haha
Also, for those who have been thinking about going to Thailand to train and you have questions, post them here. Hopefully I'll be able to be of some help. I'll be going to a lot of camps to both train and take video tours of the facilities so people will get a better idea as to what to expect if they come.
Alright, so keep checking back. I have a long ass journey ahead of me. Ottawa --> Chicago --> Tokyo --> Bangkok.
I'll post my first "official" entry when I arrive.
