Farewell Thailand

Its finally happened and my two months in Thailand is drawing to a close. Just like with my final week in New York there is a twinge of sadness to be leaving a place that I have called, albeit for a brief time, home.

Some people might view it as an opportunity missed as I have only left Bangkok four times during my stay (to go to Singapore, Pattaya, Ko Samet and Khao Yai). What of Chiang Mai, Laos or Cambodia? I haven't even been particularly active inside Bangkok, although I have ticked off most of the tourist sites on previous visits.

However, it has been exactly what I needed. The purpose of this trip was never to back pack round Asia, but to have some "me time" and recharge. John and I have certainly managed to fit in a lot of fun along the way.

The parents won't be pleased to hear that I don't exactly feel motivated to take on the world of work once again, but it is probably not too far way. One thing I know is that I will be returning to Thailand sometime in the future. It is an amazing place.


  1. Has it really only been two months? Anyway, time to put down the papaya and grab a beer my friend...speaking of, I had better go buy some!

  2. You have been living it up! From all the stuff you've been up to I thought maybe you had stayed longer than two months!

    Enjoy the next bit.

  3. come back soon mate. We'll miss you!
