In January I am taking a work assignment for a year in Bangkok. This only is possible because my wife's employer allows her to work remotely, and the kids are big enough to be left alone. We will use every weekend to travel throughout Asia, as it is damn cheap. In each of the last two years we have spent a month in Thailand for my work. Hot and humid and chaotic as fuck, but a lovely place anyway.
Drop me a note if you are going to be in town, we'll go have a drink!
