Arriving in Thailand was like a short break from travelling as we were in our second home country for a couple of weeks. We thoroughly enjoyed being cared for by my parents and having a home base. We were on the road for nearly a year by then and have packed and unpacked our backpacks in over a hundred places. Packing is done in a jiffy but the luxury of not having to live out of your backpack for a couple of weeks was welcomed. Everything went in the laundry, including our bags and our first aid kits and supplies were reviewed and replenished.
Eating out has become a normal daily activity so having home cooked meals was great. We chilled out and caught up with my parents but also visited Chiang Mai and Bangkok, two cities where we always feel at home in. Thailand accommodations are plentiful and cheap and finding a place to sleep was easy. Accommodations are always great value for money and we made our choices based on location. For our two stays in a guest house, we paid an average of € 16 per night for a comfortable double room.
This overview is slightly different than the normal overviews as our main stays were at my parent’s homes. But here goes, these were our homes on our visit in Thailand.
