I just booked my trip to Thailand on an online travel website and printed out my e-ticket. I had made a decision to go there on a spur of the moment decision because my schedule had recently opened up. I had gotten in a little bit of a rut so decided a little spontaneity in my life couldn’t hurt. Also, I was growing very weary of the cold weather and thought it would be nice to hit the beach. I was really excited to be in the water and feel the waves again. Hopefully my accommodations will be good. I booked them online as well and have only seen the pictures. The pictures look good on the website but I’ll be pretty angry if it is some sort of a scam. Oh well I guess I’ll see when I get there. Sometimes, if you want to be spontaneous you have to role the dice.
