We’re here! We made it to Chiang Mai, Thailand, late on Monday the 1st of February. We’re now in a guest house in Chiang Mai for about ten days while we go through some training, sort out work permits, and adjust a little. Next Thursday we’ll be heading down to Mae Sot to find a house, settle in, start working, etc. All the basics of creating a new life there, I suppose?
But before we move too far into Thailand, there are some wonderful times in England to be told. We had such a wonderful time with Chris and Jenn.
This is Stephen and I in the beautiful park behind their house. It was wonderful for walks and a few runs in the morning.
But, they won’t be there long–this is Chris & Jenn in front of their new house! We got to visit and look around; it’s a really lovely house and will be even better after all our dreaming of decorating ideas.
We went for a long hike one day–somewhere between eight and ten miles. It was beautiful, but freezing. I think the educated guess was about -10 degrees Celcius (14 degrees Fahrenheit). Anyway, it started in this old people town, so it had these signs up to keep them safe.
We tried to take a picture all together, but Stephen didn’t make it after he turned on the self-timer. Obviously Jenn and I were similarly annoyed with his pace 🙂
He made it the next time.
It got much colder as we moved further up into the mountains. We’re all pretty much freezing here.
Then we made it to London!
We visited the Churchill War Rooms, which Stephen’s Papa Doc highly recommended. It was a maze of underground rooms that Churchill ran the war from during Second World War.
Let’s just say it was fun.
And for all you folks in Conway: they can see your greatness from London!
