Just a quick post to let everyone know that both Darin and I are well and safe here in Bangkok, Thailand. To be honest, our hotel does not have a tv, so we didn't even know anything was wrong until late on Boxing Day when we both checked our emails. It is nice to know that people are worried about us :)
We still haven't seen any tv footage, so we just read what was available on the Internet (but we have only used dial-up so far so it's very slow) and of course, we cannot believe that this happened and the devastation that it has caused.
We actually never even considered heading to the west coast of Thailand, but did fly to Bangkok on the 23rd via Phuket stopping at Phuket airport for an hour. We are thinking of heading to Ko Chang tomorrow, which is nowhere near the worst hit areas (it's near Cambodia). I still want to enjoy the beach!!
Lots of love,
