That Time I Was On Thai TV

That Time I Was On Thai TV.  It was another steamy stick morning in Thailand.  I was on the outskirts of Bangkok at the Jesada Technik Museum.  The museum is a collection of 500 cars and motorcycles from the private collection of Thai businessman, Jesada Deshsakulrith.  It is a fun place to stroll around for an hour or so, and admission is free.  That morning, I had taken an Uber from my apartment in Sukhumvit, Thailand, and arrived approximately an hour later, northwest of Bangkok.  Today, I was going to be interviewed for a Thai TV show, known as The Passion.

Over the years, I have been interviewed for random TV shows when traveling.  I was in Tokyo and interviewed about the Sumo controversy sweeping the nation as I walked by the stadium.

But today, was going to be a bit different.  This was to be a long form interview about my passion for travel.

I had met Fah, the host of The Passion, at the Bangkok International Travel Group.  This is a Meetup group I organize that is comprised of 2,500 people who love to travel.  We meet on a regular basis in Bangkok where guest speakers share amazing travel stories.  I had previously watched some episodes of The Passion so I was glad to meet Fah in person.  Fah invited me to be on her program, and a couple months later when our schedules coincided I found myself at the Jesada Technik Museum.

The host of The Passion, Fah.

Fah and her crew decided that the program would take place at this museum since I have participated in three driving rallies in India, Cambodia, and Europe/Caucasus.  The museum ended up being a great setting for the interview.  The morning spent with Fah and her crew was a great experience.

    Congratulations Ric, you’re a great interviewee…couldn’t help but laugh when you said you ran out of gas 10 or 15 times on your Indian rally. You’ve had some great adventures. I was also curious to hear Armenia one of your favorite countries. We’ll get there someday, everyone says great things.
