A Travellerspoint blog

Thank you, Thailand

We are down to the last ten days of our extended time in Asia and I've been trying to think of all the things we have learned here. I know Thailand and Cambodia were not at all what we expected. This place is the most relaxed and easy-going country we have been to. The people are friendly, cheerful, modest, polite, and seem truly happy. The country is peaceful and comfortable and somehow manages to be modern and traditional at the same time. It gave us the perfect place to put down roots for a little while when we needed to regroup and change our plans. It gave us the perfect tropical vacation and helped us save some serious money!

Even in the middle of our wonderful stay we did discover that long term travel needs some purpose. I realize that some people may be shocked by this...but there is such a thing as a "relaxing vacation" that goes on too long! While we were seeking out historical sights, finding our way through new cities, and constantly planning our arrival in the next new country our journey felt much more alive. Since we have settled into Thailand and have returned multiple times to some very familiar places we have become completely ready to move on. So we are gearing up for our next big jump across an ocean. Once again, adventure here we come!

I can't imagine how bored you'll be when you return to the old routine. How many times will you say, "Remember where we were this time last year?" You MUST buy an elephant to keep in that big backyard....(or maybe a monkey or two.) I can hardly wait to hug my Baylie Girl! xoxo
