One Night in Bangkok...

Actually, it'll be more like three weeks. And not just in Bangkok.

Even though I love a steamy subtropical city, we'll be going much farther afield. The plan is to hang out on beaches, explore Cambodian ruins, visit Vietnam and generally make our way through as many culturally relevant sites as we can.

My children, of course, are coming along. They're champion travelers, but even so we're all dreading eighteen hours of time in the air broken only by a jet-lag infused stop in Seoul.

Me: I think there's a playground in the airport.

Kids: Mom, no one wants to play on playground equipment at 3:00 in the morning!

They might have a point.
I have good reasons for dragging my entire family to the other side of the earth. There are things I want us all to see and experience. Because I'm a creature of impulse and impatience, those things take on an enormous magnitude that I'm helpless to ignore.

I'll expound more on that when I get back.

But right now I'm extremely preoccupied with making sure the hamsters have a temporary home, loading my Kindle with reading material and trying to convince Child #1 that my cast off flip flops are insufficient footwear for the entire trip.

See you in mid-April.
