Travel Checklists

We’re counting down to our Thailand, Cha-Am trip, and it is only twelve more days to go!

Am really looking forward to this trip as it has been a rather hectic couple of months at work (as always), and especially so for the last couple of days. It would do me plenty of good to take the opportunity to recharge for the busy year ahead of us – house renovation, wedding, etc.
