January-March 2024 | 49 days

This trip was a challenge to plan, in part because it was longer than usual. But since we were literally going halfway around the world — and hey, we went around the world getting there and back! — we wanted to make the most of our time while we were there.

We made a stopover in Istanbul on the way. In Thailand, we hit laid back Chiang Mai first, then Bangkok, then with cultural interests satisfied, focused on nature and beaches on Koh Tao, Koh Samui, Koh Lanta, Koh Lipe, and in Khao Sok, Krabi and Phuket. Then we ramped up again with Singapore and Japan. This was our first visit to Asia.
