Transcript

The most interesting place I've travelled to would definitely have to be Thailand.

Which is where I am right now. I've been here for a month, and I plan to stay here for quite a while.

It has a lot of culture, it's very cheap to live, and the weather is amazing. I'm from London, so it's very cold, very miserable. This is the complete opposite.

I really, really like Thailand. And I'm not sure how long I'm going to be here but I would like it to be, maybe even a year, I don't know. We'll see, we'll see.
