I touched down in Bangkok after an 8000km long journey that departed over 20 hours prior from Poland. Despite the fact I was exhausted from the flight I was overcome with joy which gave me a sense of boundless energy.
With my backpack behind me and camera gear stowed closely by the side, I boarded a train for another half an hour towards my destination at the Bodega Hostel.
Not one to rush through life’s moments, I opted to take the scenic route. Walking through alleys, backways and markets stalls all whilst being illuminated by the city lights finding myself immersed deeply in the Bangkok nightlife. This all intrigued me…..
My only contact with the Bodega Hostel was via email and wasn’t sure of what to expect.
If the directions I managed to scrawl onto a piece paper from one of the locals was correct ..I should be fairly close to my goal. I looked around and then heard voices in the distance. I walked closer and could hear the sounds of youthful banter. From afar, I saw people from around the world mingling together and vibing of each other. Knowing I I was about to be a part of this magic I was witnessing brought a smile to my face.
I heard my name being yelled with a chant and a cheer, I was welcomed by Tate himself to the famous Bodega Hostel.
Tate is an amazing host and manages the day to day operations, bar crawls and general upkeep of the place. He provided me with a lot of support and valuable advice during my visit.
I knew it would be great to stay a few days with the guys and document my trip. The adventure just began … The very next morning I started to document the life at the hostel. Below are a few photo memories.
Very warm welcome and lots of good energy with endless positive vibes– is how I can describe the first moments at Bodega.
