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.
Another time, I was interviewed in Lima on my impressions of Ecuador.
In Tibet, I was interviewed after being held in medical quarantine for five days.
And, I was also interviewed in Armenia, at an orphanage that I volunteered at.
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.
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.
You can see the program here. Check it out! (The interview is in English, but there is some Thai narration.)
