So this is me (Bob) packed and ready to hit the dusty trail once again. Bring to lighten the load with two carry-on size bags. Still seems like too much.

Last time we were in South East Asia was February 2016, that’s 6 years and 9 months. I hope we can remember how to speak some Thai.

We fly out of Victoria at 10:00am on Thursday, October 27, transit Vancouver and board Air Canada to Tokyo. After a 3hr 25min layover we board ANA to Bangkok.

We have timed the escape seeming quite well… after a very dry, warm and sunny fall… the forecast is for one of those atmospheric rivers to come roaring in as we leave.

Stay tuned…
