Ring, ring, ring.
Asia, “Hi! This is Asia. Are you coming back here or what?”
Me, “Oh, I don’t know. We are thinking about it. You know we love you but there are just so many other places in the world that we want to show the kids. We kinda feel like we should give them some fresh experiences, ya know?”
Asia, “Yes, I understand this but don’t I call to you? Don’t you love it here? The food, the people, the culture, the price…did I mention the food?”
Me, “Yes, you do call to us. You have since the first time we saw you. It is just so hard to make up our minds when there is a whole world out there. And really, the flights are so expensive. We need to tighten our budget straps.”
Asia, “Let me sweeten the deal. I’ll give you a deal on airfare so good there is no way you could pass me up. Check it out….”
Me, “Oh geez! That is such a good deal! Ok, Asia. We are in alignment. We will come back to you. You know we can’t resist!”
Asia Called. We Answered.
After much contemplation over where we would spend next winter, returning to Asia won out in the end. It was the cheap flights that cinched it for us. All four of us for $3018 all in. I’ve never seen a deal so good from Western Canada.
So back to Asia we go. This time we plan on travelling a little differently. We have tentatively decided to split our four and a half months between just two places, Chiang Mai, Thailand and Ubud, Bali. This trip will be more about relaxing than seeing the sights, about finding the time for our passions. We plan to take it uber slow. Play. Eat. Enjoy.
