9 Days in Thailand

Words and photographs by Davin Sanchez

It took some serious convincing and persistence on my brother’s part until I, and my nonexistent piggy bank, committed to taking the journey to this proclaimed paradise. Maybe it was the realization that traveling to Thailand was as equivalent as a flight across the country, or maybe it was the temptation of 50 cent beers, cheap authentic Thai food, and the appeal of a tropical getaway. But I like to think it was some serendipitous shit where my film enthusiast soul was destined to snap a fuck load of photos. Turns out it was a little mix of everything.
