The trip begins!!! Megan and Mini-Moose arrived safely on Saturday night (much to my delight, its fun having ‘forang baa (crazy foreigner) travel buddies’.
Yesterday we did a mission to Chatuchuck market working towards Megan’s goal of purchasing 43 handbags…. You think I am kidding? I am not!!! We managed to purchase 15 bags, 3 wallets, 4 pairs of shoes, 12 pairs of socks, a belly button ring, a watch, a crazy balloon, 6 T shirts and a cute puppy. Ok, joking about the puppy – dad wouldn’t let me!
So… the trip is on, lots of beer and yummy Thai food has already been consumed (thanks HardRock café for the great sounds). Today we have packed our bags, taken a team photo and we are about to start our big adventure! So… introducing the travel team:
- Megan Barnes
- Julia Baker
- Mini Moose
- Max the Kiwi (we reckon he is only half kiwi because he was probably made in China) and…..
- the SD Travel Companions (thanks to the very crazy but cool Department of Labour, Service Design team, you guys rock)
