First of all, thank YOU, to everyone who read this blog, the commenters, the silent ones, people who followed on Facebook and Instagram and everyone who virtually kept us company along the way.
Thanks to James and Cara for sparking the whole idea with the invitation to their Thai wedding, a highlight of the trip for sure.
Thank you to Mike and Sandra, housesitters extrordinaire, who took great care of our home and car and garden. Also thanks to our neighbours for keeping an eye on things when Mike and Sandra weren’t there.
Thanks to my Dad and Pam for receiving, opening, scanning and emailing six months worth of mail for us. Excellent service!
Thanks to friends back home who kept us up to date with all the news, both good and sad, from home.
Thank you to the family travel blogging community. The ones we met along the way, the ones who gave advice through the best facebook group for travelling families, the ones whose blogs provided information and inspiration before and during the trip and that I will continue to enjoy following.
Thank you to Tae, Jun and A-Tong, the best Thai host family we could have hoped for. They kept us extremely well fed and looked after for our month in Sisaket.
Thank you to all the friends and family who hosted us, fed us, and drove us to airports and train stations. Nonna deserves an extra special thanks here for having us over Christmas and New Year, but also thanks to: Jo and Dirk, Tory and Vince, Noa and Luc, Richard and Lucy, James and Cara and a big thank you to Poppa for getting up at some ungodly hour to pick us up on our return to Sydney.
Thank you to anyone who spent time playing with our kids! Especially above mentioned family and friends, the students and teachers at Sritrakool School, and friendly guesthouse and restaurant staff everywhere!
Finally, thanks to my three favourite people in the world for a most excellent adventure and for putting up with me on those days when all that family togetherness got a bit too much.
Thank you all!
