Overview

This being our first trip to Thailand, our honeymoon, and our first international adventure while pregnant (my wife, not me of course), we were a little apprehensive as we didn't know what to expect. Unfortunately, China Southern lost our baggage, and our apprehension took a little bit to lift. But, since I'm a firm believer that crises can create wonderful new experiences at times, and we're both pretty resilient folks, we kept our spirits up and trudged ahead. The lost baggage forced us to shop immediately, and we went looking for the most airy clothing we could find, as the heat was sweltering.

The fish was excellent, while everything else proved to be very good a...Read More
