I was remembering my love for travel exploration and got the bug once again. We had become settled and as day to day life took on a more routine schedule the opportunity to wonder and experience new adventures was at hand.
Being in a new country and although I had visited here many times it was always exciting getting out to experience new places and locations.
These are short posts of some early experiences but My Thai Life Update Blog will report on newer activities as life moves forward and we continue to live Tranquil in Thailand.
The experiences written about cover a range of events, attractions, our travels and foodie happenings. I have created individual posts below that showcase these stories arranged by Chiang Mai Region, Northern Region and the rest of Thailand:
