We are leaving today for a three week to Thailand and Japan. Two backpacks and two children will be our only accompaniments. We decided we better take advantage of being in this part of the world, even if it does mean travelling with two toddlers! Nicholas decided to pack scotch tape and shims, Morgan packed her silky blanket, Ryan his camera, and me...my sleeping mask and earplugs. We will spend 10 days in Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Northern Thai mountains (we are skipping the beaches since we live in Saipan) then to Japan for 10 days. We will be in Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, Nagoya and Kyoto.
We are planning to return to the States later this summer, making it to Nashville by the beginning of August after stopping in San Diego and Kansas City.
It will be difficult to leave the Saipan lifestyle, but We are looking forward to seeing all of our loved ones. Hopefully we can put some updates along the way.
