I have never actually road a hoverboard up until a few days ago. My friend Johnny let me ride his in between a long day at the office. At the time he was trying to sell it so I offered to give him a hand. He was nice enough to let me use it while he left to Europe but I was eager to sell it. My original intention was to just cruise around the Tha Phae Gate and try to flip it to a tourist. Once I arrived I just kept encouraging locals to give it a go and we had a blast.
Everyone was nervous, laughing, having fun and even when they fell they thanked me and smiled. I didn’t realize how enjoyable this video was to make and honestly I don’t really want to sell the hoverboard anyone. The smiles and laughter I got from so many good hearted people were amazing. A genuine smile is priceless.
This part of being a digital nomad traveler makes me different from the rest. I thrive off the local culture and trying to speak Thai and even a bit of Spanish makes it even better. I respect everyone in this beautiful country as it’s more then just a place to look at temples and mountains to me. It’s the people that keep me here.
P.S. Half the audio in the video was lost, could you tell?
