... packing our bags once more for our night bus to Thakaeck, hurrah, next place here we come!
In the next few days we’ll be snaking our way north, so when we arrive somewhere new that has wifi we’ll put a blog update on to say hello and wish you all well!
Enjoy what is left of the weekend back home, big hugs and kisses to you both
