Loy Krathong in Chiang Mai


We have about seventeen travel-related posts floating in our collective heads. And yet they’re incredibly hard to write—somehow it feels strange to write about What To Do in your current city when you’ve barely been there yourself, or to find the muster to wax poetic about the lovely art of travel when you’ve just spent a day working, wandering streets, and schooling the kids.

I want to share my thoughts about travel, about how doing it extendedly is changing me, changing the kids, changing our marriage, changing us. But those are big words. Big thoughts. Good thoughts, but big ones. And so they stay in journals and in prayers for now.

We have posts in draft about the technology in our backpacks; another kid-perspective post about Chiang Mai, and more general thoughts about why, even though we’re loving this year, we’re not cut out for indefinite location independence.

I’m also working furiously on an upcoming project, and completing it gets the better part of my work energy these days.

And so, I give you photos here. Lots of photos. Loy Krathong was a few weeks ago, and I’ve always wanted to see it. So far, it remains the highlight of my time in Thailand.

More about travel soon. In the meantime, here’s a visual of a lovely evening with lanterns in the city.
