Updates from Thailand

May 4, 2016

Hi, everyone! Today I’m linking up with Jenn and Jessi to share what’s been hap-pinning with me lately.

// We’ve been in Asia for a month! That is crazy to me. You wouldn’t know it from my blog (still working on those New Zealand recaps), but we’ve been in Thailand (and a little bit of Singapore) since April 5th. Wild.

Oh hey, that’s me right now!

// Thailand has been interesting. I’ll write about the country and days in more detail, but suffice to say nothing is what it seems in Thailand.

// I’ve had one bout of sickness that lasted for about four days, but otherwise I’ve been doing well. Luckily my food poisoning wasn’t terrible. It was mostly inconvenient and a little painful. But not as bad as other stories I’ve heard. Adam has a stomach of steel and he’s been almost 100 the whole time we’ve been here. I’m hoping my stomach and bacteria toughened up during my short period of sickness.

Thailand loves temples

// I’m going to start a new weekly feature on the blog where I post a photo of the week. Since my bulkier recaps are so far behind, I wanted to post something that’s a little bit more relevant to how the current week is going. So on Fridays, I’ll be publishing a short post with a photo and small update on how our week has been.

My favorite activity, eating

// I really need to figure out how to watch Game of Thrones over here. I’m about to quit Twitter for the rest of our trip just so I’m not spoiled. I’ve already been a little spoiled and I don’t know how to avoid it besides just giving up social media!

// I, like the rest of the world, am obsessed with Lemonade. I even signed up for Tidal Singapore. The things Beyonce makes you do. I still haven’t listened to Views; Drake is farther down the totem pole.

We went zip lining!

// We booked our return trip! We’ve been monitoring dates and flight miles for the last month and a really good deal popped up yesterday. We’ll be back in the good ole U S of A on June 25th. Now that we have a return date I really feel like we’re under a deadline! Only a little over 7 weeks to go! Eeek. We’re over halfway done with this trip.

Celebrating Songkran, Thai New Year, in Bangkok

// We’ve also booked out the rest of our flights for the duration of the trip. Our remaining time is about another month in Chiang Mai, a night in Malaysia, 4 nights in Cambodia, 4 in Hong Kong, 15 in Vietnam, and then a week in Japan. So we’re basically chilling out for the next month and then it’s go, go, go our last four weeks.

// America, I thought you guys would be done with Trump by now. Please. Stop him.

What up, America!

// I am newly obsessed with dim sum and am upset it’s taken me so long to discover. My only plan in Hong Kong is to eat as much dim sum as possible.

Hope you’re having a good week!

    Sorry to hear that you got a food poisoning. Hope you are feeling better. That is always my biggest fear when traveling. I cannot believe that you are half way through your trip. It really is the most amazing trip ever. I have loved following along on snapchat and IG. Continue having fun

    Bummer about the food poisoning, but glad to hear it didn’t last too long/wasn’t too terrible! Your trip sounds like it’s been so amazing. Love the idea of a quick recap on Friday’s! Have fun!!

    I can’t believe that y’all have already booked your return trip, but I’m still so excited to see what y’all do on the rest of your trip! You’d better eat a ton of sushi and ramen for me in Japan and I know you’ll eat tons of Pho in Vietnam! This whole election is just crazy to me! I don’t know what’s happening!

  • Reply Nadine May 4, 2016 at 2:24 pm

    The rest of your plans of travel sounds amazing!!! Especially Hung Kong and Japan. I think only 4 days out of how long you have been gone isn’t bad at all for a little bout of sickness. Mmmm I keep thinking about all the amazing food you are going to eat and I am totally jealous! In Japan I would be eating allllll of the Sushi!!!

    I share all your food snaps with my husband, and he keeps asking me why I would rather go to expensive places like Italy and France instead of all these cool places?! So thanks for proving his point 😉

    Keep having SO MUCH fun!!!
