Jessica's Journey to Thailand

Current Location

Negombo, Sri Lanka

Hi everyone! I'm Jessica and I am studying abroad at Mahidol University in Bangkok, Thailand. Follow me as I learn about resource management, tropical environments, Thai culture and much more!


I had a fun 18 day mini-adventure in the Philippines! I was wowed by the waterfalls and bamboo houses. I enjoyed the Filipino food and culture so much. I can't wait to come back here with my family!


I went to Sri Lanka mainly to compare its cuisine to that of its neighbor India. However, I ended up learning how different cultures place value on different things--from nature to playtime to family!

Field Notes

I went to the Philippines for my school break and found the most interesting thing on the beaches of Bohol island: this was the starfish! I now have a renewed respect for these fascinating creatures!


These are some of my favorite pictures I have of my travels in Thailand thus far. As you can see, I have met some wonderful people and seen some very memorable sights. This is why you need to travel!
