Welcome to The Long Trek Home!
Welcome to the first installment of our foray into the land of blog: The Long Trek Home.
We have just returned to Bangkok after 3.5 months of our triumphant Honeymoon / Human Rights Advocacy / Business Development / Travel Writing / Visiting Family & Friends World Tour. We made 11 stops in 8 countries and took many thousands of photos. If anyone knows of a program that automatically finds and destroys pictures that are blurry, duplicated, composed poorly or downright boring we'd be much obliged.
There's so much to share, we could fill tomes, but then that's all we'd be doing. So instead, we're hoping that our little photo-blog can offer some insight into the world of Jan & Cindy.
We are writing to you from our new home, a steamy single room down one of Bangkok's old windy lanes ("soi"), past the purveyors of everything possible - from fresh hot soya milk to pad thai to cel phone accessories to traditional sarongs that a sewer lady turned into "bed" sheet for us.
Life here is lived on the street, a real community that seems to have accepted us. Then the lady next door gave us taro chips and 'burnt candle cookies'; we gave her a folded-paper lotus flower.
But that's so present, we need to catch up on the past. Over the next little while we shall be posting highlights from our recent travels so come and check in on us as often as you can!
