Photos from Thailand

Northwest Thailand

Has it really been a over a week since I returned from Thailand?

It’s great when a country exceeds your expectations. Thailand certainly turned out to be a much different place than I’d expected.

I felt exceedingly safe throughout the trip. Bangkok was far cleaner and more modern than I’d anticipated. Chiang Mai was a nice quiet place to spend a few days.

Thailand has it’s quirks of course. But what country doesn’t?

Needless to say, I can see myself paying Thailand another visit.

Below are a few choice photos from my journey.

Note: I might write another post about the food I had during my trip. I tried a few things that you definitely won’t find on the menu at your local Thai restaurant!

Tesco Lotus: As big as Wal-Mart.
