Inspiration for where to travel with children

The Boat Museum Ayutthaya Thailand

Most people visit Ayutthaya Thailand because it was an ancient capital of the Kingdom of Siam. It’s extremely pretty and historically significant enough to credit the UNESCO World Heritage Site honor it earned in 1991. We went there to kill three days while waiting for our Chinese visas to be processed at the embassy in Read the Rest…

When Visited: January 2011 Duration: 12 days Thailand Itinerary Day 1: Train from Penang to Bangkok Our arrival in Bangkok is always going to be a bittersweet memory for me.

Gentleman Kid

This is what a crowded backpacker bus in Thailand looks like. Every seat filled with people standing and sitting all down the aisle. If you think that’s not safe, consider also that the backpacks belonging to the extra passengers were piled up behind the driver, blocking the entrance and there was no air-conditioning. Altogether not Read the Rest…

Crossing The Mekong From Thailand To Laos

In Chiang Khong, Thailand, open boats ply the broad, muddy, mighty Mekong all day ferrying people from Thailand to Laos and back again. When we arrived we were winging it with respect to knowing anything about the border crossing, passport control and even how much the boat across would cost. BigB got a little frustrated Read the Rest…

We miss you Bangkok

We’ve been snowbound in Seattle this week. There’s been snow, sleet, rain, a very unusual ice-storm and general weather mayhem. All of which led me to think about where we were a year ago: in a warmer, gentler Bangkok. Here’s BigB and I taking a moment out of a busy day sightseeing exploring the many Read the Rest…

Thai Motorway Toilet Sign

Spotted at a motorway gas station on the way into Bangkok. There were regular male/female toilet signs posted but some humorist had put this up on the wall just by the entrance to the men’s restroom. This collection of whacky toilet signs is building quite nicely. You can check out the set at WanderMom Toilet Read the Rest…

Golden Triangle Asia And Drugs

We arrived at Golden Triangle, Thailand late in the afternoon. It had taken almost the whole day on a minibus and then a public bus to get from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai to Chiang Saen and then on to Sop Ruak, a hamlet outside of Chiang Saen. At this stage even I was begining Read the Rest…

Five Days In Chiang Mai For $600

Our five days in Chiang Mai were some of the most enjoyable on our trip so far. We rode elephants, went bamboo rafting, did a bicycle tour of Chiang Mai and spent a day learning to cook Thai food. On our bus out of Chiang Mai I was daydreaming, thinking about how much fun we’d Read the Rest…
