It’s beginning to look a lot like …

…another standard Wednesday Evening.

Happy Christmas Eve everybody (unless you’ve already made it to Christmas Day, in which case, Happy Christmas!). I can’t believe Christmas Eve is already here. I can’t believe I have been travelling for over 3 months. I can’t believe Jade and I left Bangkok for Roi-Et exactly 2 months ago today. Time flies.

Roi-Et: Home Sweet Home?

Roi-Et is a city located in Roi-Et province in the North-East region of Thailand more commonly known as Issan. It’s situated nearish the Laos and Cambodian borders, and is a fairly big city within the area. It has an airport and a river, shopping malls and a cineplex. It’s not Bangkok, but it has everything you could need. We have our own little Bungalow a couple of miles outside of the hustle and bustle of the city centre. It has A/C, it’s detached, it’s located right by Jade’s school.

Sounds perfect, right? Continue reading “Roi-Et: Home Sweet Home?”
