When we first arrived in Thailand, we spent a week in Bangkok, a week in Koh Chang and then headed to Northern Thailand. Of course we took the overnight train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai and then spent a wonderful 3 1/2 months in Chiang Mai. We had a blast and even made a Chiang Mai Guide – Family Friendly of course. We then explored Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia for a few months, on our Adventure333 (3 Generations, 3 Months, 3 Countries). This was all fantastic, even though most of it was inland or away from beaches.
In February, we once again returned to Thailand, though this time we were going to visit Southern Thailand! We had plans to visit many of the beautiful Thai Islands, surrounded by the majestic turquoise waters, in the Thai Gulf and the Andaman Sea. It was finally beach time!
We have been traveling for 2 1/2 years! We spent nearly 2 years with Southern Spain as a homebase and explored a bit of Western Europe. As of July 2014, it was on to see what Southeast Asia had in store for us. It was time for a nomadic life, the life of modern-day gypsies. We would move around just about every week. Once in a while we would stay for a bit longer and in Chiang Mai we stayed for 3 1/2 months. After 7 months of being on the move, it was time for a family vacation!
