2048“So I was at Ton Sai beach, one of my favourite beaches in Thailand. I think I’d been blogging for a year already. Wasn’t sure where I was going, I didn’t see the success, I was about to quit.
”I met this fisherman who at night was bartending at one of the two bars on this beach. We’d been talking and talking and drinking a few drinks. He told me this. That kept me busy for a few days. Gave me the power, the motivation to actually become a professional travel blogger, and that’s where I am today.
"I have to be very thankful for meeting this guy. I never knew his name, but this random guy on this small beach in Thailand helped me become the person I am today.”
