Made it...

See the itinerary of this trip, and details about each destination.

After 24 hours of shleppin' we arrived in Bangkok safe and sound. It's not hot at all...70-75 F ish. Staying at a sweet guesthouse called Lamphu House in the heart of backbacker land. I highly recommend it. Time for a massage.

Money for the trip...

0 °C

180768DSC_0530.jpgWe just had a big moving sale where EVERYTHING went. Erik just realized that his recent years of relative financial stability, materialism, and accumulation of stuff has been an indirect way of funding the upcoming trip. Over the past 2 weeks he made $1000 by selling all of his un-needed stuff (most of which were freebies to begin with)... $20 here, $40 there...furniture, old bike, clothes, books, plants. Add that to all the Miles racked up on the credit card from paying off bills and that covers the round trip flight. And Pia cashed in her 15lb. bag of spare change and got $60 and $75 from Crossroads. Stoked!

Getting ready for trip to South East Aisa

After 7 years of 9 to 5'n it Erik finished up his last day of work on Fri 12/19 and Pia finished up her AA degree at Cabrillo. Yeah for us! We are stoked, but it all hasn't set in yet b/c we have so much to do -move out of apartment, pack, get rid of things we don't need, etc. It could be worse...saying goodbye to Santa Cruz will the hardest part.
