Some of you may remember from an earlier post of mine that my daughter is travelling in South East Asia with some friends. They have been gone for nearly 2 months and are having a wonderful time. They have experienced the chaos of Bangkok, the beautiful temples, a jungle walk and a fabulous Elephant trek where they swam in the river with the elephants. They have survived the obligatory sickness and sleeping in pretty horrid places when they had no other choice!
My daughter is the only girl in a group of 5 boys, 2 English and 3 Canadians, it seems to work well, she is certainly made to feel safe, they all seem to get along and so far there have been no problems. The only mishaps have been some cash taken from them, and being ripped off by a taxi driver and barman. If that is as tricky as it gets, I will be happy! They are currently travelling through Vietnam on motorbikes (this as a Mother causes me a few anxious moments) but, apparently this is what they all do and is a great way to see the country.
A rather large Typhoon is heading their way, they have moved to a better hotel (stronger building) and away from the coast. It is due to hit in the next 24 hours, so they are staying put and waiting for it to pass. Adventure certainly!
I love this photo, it has a wonderful sepia quality to it.
I miss her hugely, we are very close. However I am so thrilled that she has this opportunity and is making the most of it. They will have wonderful memories to cherish for many years and to share with others. I am so proud with how she is managing every new experience and challenge that comes her way.
