Backstory:
We began (again) from LAX, California, USA November 2, 2018. We were gone for another full-time year of travel, prior, but did not have an official travel blog, yet. Now, we are building a new Travel Website to prevent any loss of our travel blogging. We will report when we are up and running, but one glitch for cell phone viewing is the hold Everything up 🙄 Until that time, reluctantly, on Facebook, there is Daryl’s and my pages:
Bunny Chronicles
World Travel
In addition, we have photos available for viewing, which go way far back in our world travel on my photo websites:

I have visited 72 countries thus far, and Daryl around 50. We have many more country visit adventures, ahead!

Bangkok, Thailand.. stayed only two nights. We had to empty a storage unit, then we got massages and ate great food! Daryl and I met in Bangkok, so it will always be special! ❤️
Bali, Indonesia 🇮🇩 superseded any expectation I had of the place. We stayed in Ubud, and had so much fun, ate good food, rafted, trekked the terraced rice farm, visited a coffee plantation, and the Volcanic mountain, a waterfall, temples, and the Sacred Monkey Forest.
Next, we flew to Labuan Bajo and spent a week exploring Komodo National Park. We hiked to find the Komodo Dragons, boated, snorkeled, went Scuba Diving and visited several islands… great views!
We had a lovely view from our hotel on Labuan Bajo…We also did a three-tank dive in the beautiful waters of Flores… such a beautiful place!
Singapore did not go as planned, but it went as it should have. I was in great need of replacing my old computer, so our time was spent at Apple, and I came away a happy girl! The weather did not allow for any of our planned sightseeing. It stormed, right up till the morning we boarded the plane… oh well. We honestly were not wowed by Singapore. We have visited many large Asian cities we found more interesting, and far more affordable; in our humble opinion, of course.

“Thailand 🇹🇭 ~We Have a Plan”

I had to do some work on our itinerary, but in June, 2020, we will return back to Thailand, after many months in Europe, to base ourselves out of; to travel to Bhutan 🇧🇹, Bangladesh 🇧🇩, Myannmar, and maybe Assam in India 🇮🇳 if we can fit it in. We have been trying to coordinate these last few places for awhile in Asia; places we just can’t miss!

In part, we are leaving luggage here at the hotel, when we fly out tonight, and we will need more immunization updates by June, too, at BNH Hospital. When we complete our above country stops, we will end in Thailand, where we plan on relaxing for awhile. In six months, we will have been on the steady go for almost three years, and I’m little worn out playing travel agent AND tourist. We need to stay put for a bit, to give me a chance to get away from scheduling, and chill, then build up our travel itinerary for another year in advance, before we take off again, as building the itinerary a month ahead at a time (hours and hours of research and whatnot) is not working as well, since it leaves me little time to enjoy living in the moment.

We did get most of our business taken care of, whilst in Bangkok, but we really wish we could stay longer! We love it here, since Thailand is so special, the people are so kind, and the food (especially street food) is the best. Thai massages, by the highly trained professionals here, are also the best in the world, and yet the cheapest you will find! Overall, Thailand 🇹🇭 is one of the most affordable countries to visit!

We had to check out of our room at noon, but don’t have a flight till 7:30PM tonight. We are just hanging out, till we go to the airport in a few hours.

Enjoy a few shots of short visit in Thailand 🇹🇭

“Thailand 🇹🇭 ~The Royal Palace in Bangkok, is Where it All Began for Us”

Just over four years ago, Daryl and I met on the grounds of this Palace, and fell in Love 🥰 Every time we come back to Bangkok, we make sure to go by it. Last time, we did so by boat on the Chao Phraya River, that runs behind the grounds.

Incidentally, today it is a Happy Birthday to one of the Kings today; from another era! Kings are still being recognized by the Thai people; both alive, and those who have passed. The spectacular Grand Palace is undoubtedly the most famous landmark in Bangkok, today.

It was built in 1782 and for 150 years was the home of the Thai King, the Royal court and the administrative seat of government. The Grand Palace has beautiful architecture and intricate detail, all of which are a proud salute to the creativity and craftsmanship of the Thai people. Within its walls is also where the Thai war ministry, state departments, and even the mint operated.

Today, the complex remains the spiritual heart of the Thai Kingdom.

2015… I was stalking this tall handsome stranger 😂
And Daryl was stalking me….
From that first conversation, we have been attached at the hip ever since! In this picture, we knew each other for less than an hour, but we are soulmates, so it felt like we were getting reacquainted, after not seeing each other in awhile. Love is like that.
