Travelling to Thailand... The Back Story!


I'm keeping this short and sweet tonight, just as a bit of background to what you'll be seeing online over the coming days.

Back in November, I entered a travel competition for bloggers around the world, to write about their ideal trip to Thailand.  It's part of the Tourism Authority Thailand's campaign Fly Me to the Honeymoon, promoting Thailand as the ideal destination for honeymoon travellers.
Hopefully we'll see some of these! Taken in Bangkok in 2011

We are super delighted to have been chosen as the winners of the Culture category and tomorrow morning, we're making our way to London to board a British Airways flight to Bangkok.

It's all been incredibly sudden, two weeks ago, we had no idea we were going, but in a vow to say yes to live to the full and take every opportunity that lands by us, we're going!

Over the coming days, you'll see lots of Thai travel info on social media... I'll be blogging, tweeting, instagramming and facebooking our travel exploits.

Right now, I can't say too much, other than we're taking you somewhere that many Europeans have never been to - the areas of Nakhon Phanom and Sakhon Nakhon Province.  It's up in the north of Thailand at the Mekong River.  We're hoping over the next week to show you some cultural sites you've never seen before and tell you stories of culture - far away from the beaches and islands side of the country.
