Thank you veronica marilyn i try to do . youtuber and i bought the paper and the . spanned in the lights and it's just not . working it's not to asking so i'm a . company like this let me set you up bro . nice and we don't continue with the . video as planned and scheduled the devil . not gonna steal my joy so you are . traveling soon i hear or at least you're . thinking about it okay it's on your . vision board this is your shonda year of . yes or whatever either way you are going . on a trip in november of 2016 i went to . thailand and i want to ask them your . questions i'm here to a your cute this . is amazing how did chloe start one love . travel club and how did you find out . about the program . well internet cousin meet chloe okay . youtube world is chloe founder of one . love travel club travel connecting . people volunteering entrepreneurship . these are all passions of mine so after . identifying those things and combining . that with things i know that i'm good at . it was a no-brainer to start one love . travel club and it's been an amazing . journey so far i definitely started out . solo but we have grown and i have a team. that supports many of our efforts and . help sell this shit so i heard of one . love travel club through the travel . vlogs of youtubers natural niecy and . mini marley i have watched their vlogs i . think they had both gone to south africa . maybe later down the line chloe reached . out to me and i'll say is this the same . do the same thing this is gonna be lilly . cold. would you recommend a travel club to an . introvert who despises moments of forged . social interaction with strangers asking . for a friend i would recommend a travel . club if you're an introvert you just . have to be an adult and manage your own . relationships and manage your own. interactions with people and set . people's expectations up because the. worst thing is when someone thinks . you're unfriendly i'm not unfriendly i . just don't want to talk to you right now . what's your two totally different things . polar i mean three hours if you don't . like group activities then you're just . going to have to figure out how people . are going to maybe keep track of you do . you want people keeping track of you are . you going to be annoyed when people are . trying to find you do you want people . that you have to tell people how much . they should care about you i never felt . like there was a force interaction i was . have to be there obviously though . because i was co-hosting it and i knew i . would have a chance to meet internet . cousins right so i was high from the . jump. i can guarantee you there's another . person who wants to go somewhere and not . talk on the journey there find that . person and go with them oh this person . wants to know if they should go by . themselves because a travel group is too . expensive as cheaper to go on their own . definitely possible to navigate bangkok . alone chiang mai alone yes there going . to be some difficulties at the language . barrier but you will figure it out it's . not again i'm comparing my travels to . lagos in nigeria lagos nigeria is a . chaos that i don't that i just have not . gotten a handle of just get data talk . you're gonna have to talk to people so i . think the more you're by yourself the . more you have to talk to people to get . information to get from point a to point . b and low key if a travel club . experienced group travel is too . expensive you can just meet up with them . there . you want to say that part of the babu . brigade and i'm saying pad like i would . pack as light as possible but check your. airlines restrictions for the baggage . size so because the asian airline i was . using their carry-on policy to fly you . gotta be this big i had to check a bag i . don't know well you should leave at home . because i don't know your life your . lifestyle you know what i'm saying but . the one thing you should remember if . you're going to thailand . you should bring something to cover your . body for modesty reasons so in thailand . everybody buddhists and if you go to a . temple to visit and you our woman you . cannot have your legs out you cannot . have you cannot be walking around the . most beside me okay . bring you a little sarong you know . didn't say a little just cut out five um . and just wrap it up or wear pants what's . the best way to vlog while traveling and . how do you backup save all your videos . and pictures on long trips that's a the . vlog is so we can't have in front of . your face and blog um blogging is hard i . don't back up anything i could lose it . all at any moment i bring as few as . little um technology as possible in my . mind if you bring it you have to be ok . with it getting lost damaged or stolen . so i don't bring my computer i try not . to bring a hard drive i just bring my . camera battery sometimes i don't bring a . camera i just use my phone and make sure . i got enough memory it is what it is . okay i ain't no casey neistat okay um . i'm not much help because i am a plain . sleeper i sleep in planes trains . automobiles buses so the flight was . austin texas here home to seattle . seattle to taiwan taiwan to bangkok. thailand that's why from seattle to . taiwan i think with 13 hours i have a . cycle a system a strategy of sleep for . two and a half hours wake up watch two . movies so what's at four hours four to . five hours depending on how long the . movie is sleep for another two and a . half hours wake up and watch two . these go back to sleep do it again go . back to sleep do it again and you're in . asia . if you cannot sleep on planes you might. have to get you a melatonin if you want . to go the natural route you can find a. medication if that's what your body . requires i would be careful with those . medications especially if you're . traveling alone on the flight back home . from korea a couple years ago the guy . next to me had taken something and he . was a rock i had to like climb over him . to go to the bathroom like he was just . dead weight and i'm like i feel like i . don't feel safe in that but hey he did . not wake up for the whole flight from . korea to the united states so i guess it . worked. traveling from bangkok to chiang mai was . really simple i mean it's a flight and . it's on one of like the more local . airline and i like a huge plane it's. like a small plane like the plane i. would take from austin to ballast . that's comparatively what it's like to. fly from bangkok to chiang mai i went . through security they didn't know what . to do with my hair they were looking at . me like i think we have to check it but . i don't want to ask i don't know how to . ask just go through so that were the . questions about being black okay i know . my black friends have traveled to other . parts of asia and have spoken about . people wanting to take photos of them or . with them and touch their hair was that . the case for you i did not experience . any weirdness being black thailand . i called thailand one of the black asian . countries like they brown over there . that's not to say that colorism is not . prevalent we touched down in the in the . airport and a big billboard with this . white white girl promoting like lotions. lotions there were no weird glances . other than the fact that i'm a foreigner . south korea it's one of the run around . with an umbrella because you don't want . to be in the sun here some countries all. right people were asking me to take . pictures people were taking pictures . with. asking me people wanted to be in the. picture people didn't want they was one . of the picture of me i was on the train . with doyon and this woman literally . pushed her children to us and was like. speak english today also in bangkok . specifically there is there are a lot of . immigrants so one time we were on the . the bus going to our necks like a . charter bus going to our next . destination and i saw a nigerian man. watch out this tree which is full i . don't know what that long clothing is . called and you can see his face the bus . full of black women and some dudes and . we're just like what is that in bangkok . i saw lots of east african people so . somali your ecop and i don't know how . the air we are here eh we are here i . don't know what you like so there are . people who like nature there are people . who like buildings in architecture there. are people who like physical activities . there are people who just want to eat . and that's all they want to do don't ask . them to go nowhere pay an admission fee . for nothing i think part of the fun of . traveling is figuring out what you . shouldn't have done after the fact we . went to the white temple i'll put the . name the real name of it we went to the . white temple and that i knew ahead of . time that it wasn't a real temple but . it's literally just a photo op you can . skip that one also it's a far journey it . is a jacke me just walk around see . what's around you and don't be scared of . doing touristy stuff you are a tourist . see onsen so but . did the massages hurt it looked like . what would happen if i stepped on a . crack but it would be my own back the . massages did hurt okay uh they hurt so . good okay two and a half hours you get a . neck act you get two neck at and then . you lay on your chest is coming hurt and . then they scrub you down like they scrub. me down to my dna i felt like they took . all the years off my life i feel like an . embryo lifts my butt up scrubbed . underneath the butt flap put the butt . down to just like bop bop bop bop bop . slapping your boobs to and fro whoa . but when you get out hey you feel like . you can forget all of your life up until . this point throw it away . it's useless to me at this point you can . begin on you if i was always harder time . aside entirely i don't know i don't know . what i'm here for. i was saying that the food wasn't it . didn't hit like on the level and i . remember one time having your like . gesturing like i'm black it's different . give me the spine i did eat crickets was . the best thing i ate but it was an. experience i wanted to have to either be . look for a bag . oh god you think someone was not seafood . in some tropical food allergies could. survive but i mean if the allergy is . like life-threatening i'm going to err . on the side of caution and say no you . can't survive cuz why would i tell you . yeah and then you die the thing of it is . is like you can't make requests some . places you go they might be . accommodating and then all the good . spots all those super local spots all . the spots were don't nobody speak your . language trying to communicate to them . you could ask does it have seafood alike . no look if you like it don't and then . you die because it was cooked in fish . oil. who is the family channel family channel . i was ready to get a tattoo in thailand . yes it was going to be in thai shut up . this is already cultural appropriation . as it is let's keep the ball rolling so . the whole like stick and poke tattoo . situation done by monk is it really . possible for women because moms cannot . touch women price so how is how is he . going to you know how is he going to . okay i'm going to go to a tattoo place . get a regular dental or tattoo or i . would get it like the bamboo stick and . poke tattoo which is not gonna be . blessed if that will be hold of course i . don't speak thai he don't speak english . and i don't know how to say what i want . in thai i only know the english . pronunciation or the english what about . transliteration you can see thai letters . and they say something but i did notice . a thing ii thought i said africa i was . like ho ho no that's that way that's not . what i said um okay i kind of freaked . out that wilshire . he said put it in google translate i . said what i won't do is have a google. translated tattoos with what i won't do . sir so i just gave up and i went home . and my body is naked but a lot of people . on the trip got cut twos a lot of people . got their first tattoo your first tattoo . is a big poke down your rib curve . hopefully i helped you out or you know . you have some insight into what it was . like to travel
