Welcome to our trip journal!
Bienvenue sur notre journal de voyages (version francaise plus bas)

We are one week away from leaving on a trip we kind of kidded about just a few months ago. I remember throwing out the maybe we should just take a few months off and do a little adventuring in Thailand for a few months. Yet here we are one week away from leaving for three months. Funny how things work out sometimes. We have a number of locations in mind including Bangkok our departure point, Northern Thailand Chiang Mai and some cooking classes, Nong Kai for some Mekong adventuring and a visa reset into Laos before we head down to enjoy some beaches and relaxation in the Gulf of Thailand. From there if we can get ourselves to leave we'd like to fly up to Hanoi and travel by train along the coast of Vietnam working our way down to Saigon and again enjoying some beaches along the way. We do want to spend some time in Cambodia to enjoy the history of Angkor but we are both very interested in spending time in Phnom Penh as we are both very interested in the tragic history of the Khmer Rouge and the Pol Pot years. With our remaining time I expect we may find ourselves on another beach swimming and snorkeling before we head back. On our return trip we arranged to spend a week in Beijing which will top our trip as we will be visiting places such as The Great Wall, Tiananmen square and the Forbidden City. I can't wait to hike along the Great Wall!!! We'll update as often as we can as there are internet cafes all over.

Plus que 7 jours avant notre grand depart pour la Thailande le 7 Janvier! Un voyage de 3 mois que Derek a bien planifie durant son mois de pre-vacances en Decembre! Moi je commence enfin a relaxer après ma derniere journee de travail stressante au bureau, mon demenagement (adieu Burnaby, Bienvenue Whiterock) et mon voyage au Quebec pour la periode des fetes. Nous sommes presque prêt pour l'aventure. Nous arriverons a Bangkok le 8 janvier au soir (12 heures de difference avec le Quebec) et y resterons quelques jours pour recharger nos batteries avant de prendre le train pour le Nord de la Thailande pour ensuite aller vers Lao et redescendre vers le sud de la thailande pour profiter des plages! Ensuite Vitenam et Cambodge. On vous tienderas au courant!

A bientot...
