The People You Meet

My chameleon color is yellow…yellow for friendship.  This photo is a picture of an eldery British couple we met on Koh Mak at a random restaurant in the middle of nowhere on the island.  We sat with them for dinner and drinks and had a great time hanging out with them.  The next when we were leaving the island, we took the shuttle from our accommodation across the island to the dock to get take the ferry back to Koh Chang.  To our surprise, when we arrived at the dock we bumped into the eldery couple who came to the dock to bid us farewell. The touching thing about this memory is though we only shared one great night in their company, this sweet couple made the effort to come say goodbye to us.  As the boat departed they waved to us and began taking photographs of us…it was as if we were saying goodbye to friends or family we had known our whole lives.  This is what makes traveling so amazing.  The people you meet along the way though you only know them for one day become people you’ve known your whole life.  It’s a bond that all travelers share because of our vulnerability in foreign places and our willingness to open up.  The people you meet are just as important a part of the experience than anything else. They are the only people who will share that memory with you for the rest of your life…something people back home will never understand no matter what you tell them.
