Calling all arm-chair travellers!

Sometimes, during our days here in Thailand, I've had a thought flash before me - I'm not ready to go home! Who hasn't had that thought while they're on holiday? The days go quickly and the next thing you know, its all over and you are back to reality.

Following that thought, I have this realisation that it's ok - we are not going home - somehow we have arranged to put our life on hold to have a whole year in Asia and I intend to enjoy it as much as I can as the opportunity may not arise again.

We went for a final sightseeing walk at dusk this evening to see the 'Giant Swing' and have our last taste of Thai street food.

Thailand has been wonderful: three weeks of unwinding and at the same time energising, refreshing and spending quality time together as a family. The Thai people have been friendly, smiling and kind, and above all affectionate to our little travellers. But the real business of this year away begins today as we board our Druk Air flight this morning at 7.20am, bound for the mysterious Kingdom of Bhutan!

A while ago I found this great clip on youtube and so I invite you to come along for the flight with us today - as we head into our new life in Bhutan. Come and sit in the cockpit for what has been described as the most difficult landing on earth! 

See you on the other side!!!!
