Thanks so much to everyone who wished me a happy birthday! It’s so fun being on the other side of the world because my birthday lasts like a day and a half ;).

We met up with my parents in Bangkok tonight, they have had such an adventure in Thailand so far. You should check out their posts! Jetaime and I have been talking a bit about a philosophy I picked up from my brother when I was younger “If it makes a good story it’s usually worth it”. So anytime we have a terrible experience, but it makes a great story we can just laugh and realize that’s the price of a funny tale. 

My parents took us to an exquisite, but still fairly well priced to Canadian standards, restaurant. It was just simply good to be together again, to catch-up, and to share the experiences of encountering a new culture all over again. The meal was delicious, and the company even better. I’m so thankful for my parents and so proud of how adventurous they have become now that they are retired. I can’t wait to hear what else they encounter this trip!
