A girl friend of mine and I traveled to Thailand in 2011, when it was a little less mainstream, but still was no big deal. Add the fact that we scored $100 return flight tickets to Bangkok, and this trip was begging to happen. But this was no ordinary trip for us. One way or the other. Many firsts, my first Air Asia flight, my first time couchsurfing, my first trip with a girl friend, and my first time being robbed.
