But at some point, people need to mature to the stage where seeking comfort is not the only motivation driving their actions. An adult whose only interest is their own comfort is no longer cute and appealing; at best they elicit our pity, at worst our scorn.

We have also gotten to explore some areas of Bangkok and experience some different modes of transportation.
