Here’s the story of two months I spent in Thailand, traveling solo with diabetes and seeking out places I hadn’t visited on previous trips to the Land of Smiles. What I found was captivating: warm, friendly people and places imbued with a live-and-let-live approach to life that makes Thailand such a rewarding land to wander around. Read these tales of Bangkok smog, the Death Railway, pit stops for mysterious fried snacks on Thailand’s largest wooden bridge, thieving monkeys in Lopburi, pizza and insect meals in Phitsanulok, and even a brand-new blood sugar meter from a Surin pharmacy. There’s no place on Earth like Thailand!
