The highlights of our trip

After 3 1/2 months away and 7 countries visited we are safely back in sunny London. We compressed our trip in this video. Very grateful to have such good fortune, health and weather along the way. Big thank you to all family and friends who followed us along the journey, those who hosted us (The Rutters, The Allans), friends that joined us and to those who led the way before us, inspired us to make this dream come true. This would not have been possible without the tips and tricks of Almost Fearless, Never Ending Voyage, Till The Money Runs Out, With 2 Kids In Tow, It’s Backpacking We Go.

Lost in Chiang Rai

We got lost, did many u-turns, Mark refused to ask for directions, Jonas cried and Dylan demanded we go back to the pool. At the end we found the black temple (Baan si Dum) Рthe creation of local artist Thawan Duchanee. Animal skins, skulls and horns with amazing wood carving. Very dark and unique.

On a lighter note we then wandered around hungry till we found the Chivit Thamada Coffee House ran by a Swedish/Thai couple. Next to the river this white colonial house was beautiful. Everything was perfect- pastries, drinks and Dalarna horses while jazz played in the background. Could have been Sweden but there was sun and heat so maybe not.

Tomorrow we will catch a plane to visit some twins
