Three Days to Bangkok (sung to the tune of the “Twelve Days of Christmas”)
February 26th, 2010 by Kate

After 3 days of travel, my head was killing me…

60 kilos of backpacks

28 hours sitting in airports

18 hours on the airplanes

10 airport security lines

8 trips through customs and immigration

7 hour drive across New Zealand

6 more passport stamps

F-I-V-E overpriced airport meals (fa la la la la la)

4 shuttle buses

3 grungy hotel rooms

2 unhappy children

AND a 4-star hotel room waiting at the END (yeah Jeff!)

I’m so envious of you guys. And, embarrassed of my own cowardice. What an adventure. I am hugely proud just to know you and want you all to know that I think this is perhaps the greatest venture a family can take.
I still have vivid memories of the travels with Dess and Bernie. Of course that was just the family packed into the current model Buick we had at the time and setting a course for dad’s next assignment, so it pales by comparrison to your sojurn.
One question; will you be going to Bali? If so I have the name of a beach I highly recommend. Its called Dreamland Beach; any cabbie can take you there and most probably wait until you’re ready to come back. But what am I doing telling you about places to go and see? I wait to hear about where you’ve been and what you’ve learned.
Yours in constant motion. JohnB
