Well, as you have probably heard on the news... there is a lot going on in Thailand at the moment with the protests. We were scheduled to fly out of Bangkok, but that won't be happening now.
We're looking at our options...most involve very long bus rides. Either we get bused to a military base and wait in a cue to fly out of there or take a bus down into Malaysia. Should be more of an adventure I think.
This trip has been amazing. We've really enjoyed it here and though it's rained off and on--it's stayed really warm. The water is as clear as I could have ever imagined water to be. Pictures coming eventually ;) hopefully we can make it back to Japan soon and safely.
