It was quite a day! Went to the floating market, which is amazing, gorgeous, crazy, and sort of like bumper boats.
Then we went to an elephant village and I rode an elephant!
Whole story here:
DH took me out for a Valentine's Day lunch - but since he was taking me, he got to pick the restaurant.
We ended up at his new fave, a neighbourhood spot with burgers. He's a burger man.
They had a crazy Valentine's special with a hea... Read more
DH grabbed my dad's hat as we were leaving the states, to take on our travels with us. Hat fits him well. So we've started taking the hat around and photographing it in country-specific locations.
So here's the hat in Bangkok.

I had to act like a chicken to be sure that's what this was - the photo in the menu was ambiguous. So I really did fold up my "wings" and say "bluck bluck bluck" and the waitress agreed this was "tsicken." (The restaurant guest on the other si... Read more
I know, it was a short break. But, well, while I'm still a bit down, I'm feeling better.

So, I flew back from the States, and enjoyed New Year's Eve with DH in Bali. Had a lovely and slightly crazy time, which I will blog about at a later date.

So I'm heading to Washington (state) and will be there 10 days. Don't know what will happen or how this will work out, but I'll be in touch.... Read more
