From Patty: Sometimes, our team has a free moment to write about their personal travels. This week, we are sharing the amazing adventure that Hazel Xavier, my assistant and reason for sanity, recently took to Bangkok, Thailand.
Hi, my name's Hazel and I play a crucial role in supporting Patty's endeavors remotely while often remaining hidden from the spotlight since November 2021!
I guess you can think of me as like the gears of a well-oiled machine, working to ensure that all the pieces come together seamlessly, allowing Patty to focus on what she does best.
With the freedom to work from anywhere, I chose to immerse myself in Thailand's culture.
Stepping foot in the bustling city of Bangkok, I was instantly captivated by the people, atmosphere, rich history, and flavors.

The intricate details of the architecture, the gleaming gold decorations, and the serene ambiance left us in awe of Thailand's rich cultural heritage.
We also paid our respects at the famous Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn, which stood tall by the Chao Phraya River, offering breathtaking views of the city skyline during sunset.
During our time in Bangkok, we had the privilege of witnessing the locals' deep-rooted traditions and customs.
From the bustling markets like China Town, where we bargained for unique souvenirs and immersed ourselves in the local shopping experience.
