1 week countdown!!
11.02.2010 - 25.02.2010
For the extremely rare friends or family members who haven't heard us blab repeatedly about how deliriously excited we are about our upcoming annual winter vacation trip.. here it is: WE ARE GOING TO THAILAND!!!! If you're anything like me (let's call it geographically challenged) you probably know that Thailand is in Asia somewhere. Thanks to this enclosed little map, you can see that it is indeed in South East-Asia, under China - well technically under Laos and Myanmar but again, if you are like me.. you didn't know where those Countries were either Or we can simplify it by saying it's on the other side of the world, as Thailand is exactly 12 hours ahead of us. Now why Thailand? We were looking for a winter vacation that would include adventure, a hint of a culture shock and the possibility to veg on a beautiful beach to relax before going back to the grind (I could easily make a coffee grind pun intended joke here.. but it'd be too predictable coming from 2 coffee company employees.) Thailand seemed to be offering the best of both worlds. The grand departure is set for February 11th.. which just happens to be our wedding anniversary that we will happily celebrate on a 22.5 hour plane ride. (Can you say mile high club! lol!) Our trip itinerary includes 3 days in Bangkok, 3 days in Chiang Mai, then off to Phuket until the 25th. We will try to blog every few days like we did last year. We hope you'll enjoy tagging along in our Thai adventure!!
