Thailand, A Happy Reunion


Although my return to Thailand will be primarily limited to Bangkok as a launching point for my tour of South East Asia, I have fond memories of my previous visit there in 2007.

What I am also looking forward to is doing something I should have done on my last visit, eat a bug. Unfortunately, this time I will not have the opportunity to return to Chiang Mai or Ko Samuet.

Even today, I can still recall the total bliss of the best massage I have ever had laying on a beach there.





No doubt, these memories come with some regret that this time I will only be in Bangkok.   Nonetheless, I will make the best of my two days here before moving on to Laos.
