I’m sorry to say we just got back from a great 2 week holiday in Thailand - sorry because I could have easily stayed there a few more days at least. I’d been before, about 13 years ago, but this was the first trip for my wife, and she thoroughly enjoyed it too. We’ve relaxed, eaten some fantastic (and of course, at times extremely hot, if you head for where the locals eat, which we try to) local food, and generally had a good time.
The return journey was somewhat demanding though, clocking in at 27 hours due in part to the fact that for the latter part of the holiday we stayed in a somewhat less travelled area (at least compared to the now arguably spoilt tourist centers of Phuket and Koh Samui), and given that we also live on an island, the whole journey amounted to 1 boat, 2 car trips, 1 bus transfer, and 3 flights, with all the inherent waiting about in between each.
I have a ton of things to blog about regarding the trip and other subjects, but they’ll be delivered in a gradual fashion over the next few days. Needless to say, lack of sleep and jetlag means I’m taking a couple of days to catch up with things and adjust to normal life again 😀
