This morning I had a security clearance interview for that job I got at the embassy (yes, it’s taking forever). As we were going out our building, my friend Michelle ran up to us and asked for a ride to the embassy.
As we were chatting on the way there, she mentioned how her plans to go to Bangkok with a friend fell through, and she was just not going to go now. Then Karl said “maybe Carla can go with you.”
Oh, wait. What?!? You don’t need to tell me twice!
By noon my tickets for tomorrow were booked (talk about last minute!), and as Michelle has been to Bangkok but not Chiang Mai, and she’s been wanting to go there (and I’m dying to go back) we are hopping on another flight and Sunday we should be riding elephants. For real. AGAIN! I’m so super-excited to have a chance to do that one more time before we leave Asia!
And yes, I paid a small fortune for my tickets (by Philippines standard, it’s still a sweet deal even compared to US domestic fares), but it’s going to be so worth it. Let’s hope for no rain, since it’s that pesky season and all…
So though yet another trip won’t help much on my blogging, I will come back with even MORE pictures to post! There was our relaxing trip in Kota Kinabalu, my trip with Tracy to Coron (Tracy left yesterday, boo!), and now back to Thailand.
Can’t wait to do this again…
And to think this morning when I woke up, traveling wasn’t even on my radar!
