Thailand was different for us.
We've been trying not to move around too much within a country, opting instead to pick one or two spots and stay put so that we can have downtime, save money and really get to know the place.
But for Southeast Asia we were keen to travel over land as much as possible so we started in Johor Bahru in southern Malaysia and headed north all the way through Thailand and then east into Laos. We did settle for five weeks in Malaysia, but were more ambitious for its northern neighbour. We moved eight times in 30 days while in Thailand and were busy most days.
It was quite the adventure!
It’s after dark and we’re whizzing around Bangkok in the back of a tuk tuk after a long day of exploring.
We’ve been in the city for just two days and will leave tomorrow morning.
“Mom, are we almost home?” asks a very sleepy LJ as she leans into me.
