5 Reasons why we are excited to get outta town!

Our bags are (somewhat) packed and we are only four days away from leaving! Woo woo! Now the excitement is really starting to grow because we are officially in the home stretch! We only have a few more days of work left and then we get to say goodbye to Winnipeg and say a big hello to beautiful Bangkok!

Here are a few things that we are most looking forward to do when we arrive on the other side of the world:

1. Catching up on reading.
Saying that this year has been hectic would be the biggest understatement. Words cannot describe how excited we are to get out of town and just relax and reboot. We both have a stack of books that we can't wait to dive into the second we get on the plane!

2. Soaking up some much-needed rays.
Did we blink and totally miss summer? I think so! We are more than ready to get our sweat on in the humid Thai heat!

3. Shopping!
So much yes!! I cannot wait to navigate the narrow hallways at the Chatuchak Market in search of the perfect new piece (or two... or three...) to add to my wardrobe.

4. Eating delicious food
Mmm... spicy curry dishes! Fresh fruit shakes! Chang beer! Street pad thai! Doner kebabs! The list goes on and on and my mouth is watering as I type this...

5. Exploring new places and visiting old favorites.
Ah, Khao San Road, aren't you a sight for sore eyes?! We cannot wait to walk these crowded streets again! Also, since we aren't venturing out of Bangkok on this trip we will have plenty of time to explore new areas that we haven't been before, so if you have any suggestions of must-see places please let us know!



  1. Have fun...I know you will! Sounds like a great itinerary!

  2. ahhh, lovely list :) now i wanna get outta here as well!
    xo, cheyenne

  3. The fresh fruit stand looks beautiful. Fresh shakes sound like a great pick-me-up after all the shopping, reading, & sunbathing. :] // itsCarmen.com ☼ ☯

  4. Just saying you two... I think you should give serious consideration into putting together a girls retreat. I always love your Thailand posts and I always say that if I had guides like you who I trusted, who knew the city, and who liked to do the same fun stuff I do, I would totally sign up for a trip. I'm sure other girls would too... something to think about.... ;)

    Have fun!!

  5. Swimmming! Have an amazing time x

  6. Hey! I will be travelling to Bangkok in a couple of weeks. Can you recommend some interesting shops and food places in the centre? Thanx. Have a fun trip!
