i know it seems really romantic to just do whatever you want,

But the government really doesn't like that...

"where are you going?"
"for how long?"
"six months"
"you have a visa?"
"no you're not."

After a few very stressed out moments in the Winnipeg airport we came to the conclusion we would have to change our return flight for three months from now, we still intend on being here for six, so a little juggling will have to happen.

We boarded our plane to Chicago and landed starving, we got on the plane and were told it would be a 2 hour wait before the fixed a seal. Sweet, food! Pictured below, our pizza, roasted vegetable sandwich, and butternut squash soup. So good, who would have thought there was good food in an airport.

The flight from Chicago to Tokyo is long, real long. We made our connection into Bangkok without trouble and after over twenty hours on a plane, and a few more waiting in airports, we've arrived safe and sound (with one month stamped in our visa's) into our very cute little resort in Bangkok. It's very nice to have a shower and not be on a plane. We haven't seen much of Thailand yet, but so far everyone is very friendly and it is just as crazy as you think it is.


  1. Hey, I'm glad you guys made it! I saw your facebook post asking about visas, and I was concerned... I hope you enjoy Thailand!!

  2. Glad to see you made it safe. Good luck with the visa stuff. My brother went to Poland sans visa for six months. He just had to go vist Germany for a day in the middle. So it might not be that much juggling.
