Thailand

We love Thailand! That’s just the way it is. We spent about a month exploring the country in early 2017, and can’t wait to go back.

Our trip around Thailand included both some of the well known, tourist “meccas” like Bangkok and Chiang Mai, but also some of the more off the beaten path places like Kanchanaburi and Sukhothai.
