Arriving in the Philippines

Arriving in the Philippines.....

A few weeks ago we arrived in the Philippines, earlier as planned because we couldn't resist the tickling in our fingers to start with our own projects. So we arrived at Jay´s parents unexpected as a surprise, and it was a good surprise :) It was such a happy moment to be home again after 2 years.

The two of us had the crazy idea after a few days already, to start building a hut in the forest next to Mama and Papa´s house, so we have our own little residence  until we have found a place to settle. Then we have a place to store our stuff and a place we always can come back to, after we travel from place to place in search of a new home.

So we started to draw huts. .....and calculated....and cut some trees into boards and started to realize our idea from the little hut in the forest :)


thats how it started ...with sketches ....

Nan Art Festival, Thailand

Our last days in Thailand,

We spend our last days in Nan again, that beautiful little town between mountains, temples and the nan river. We thought it would be a nice idea to be there before we will fly in the Philippines !
And it was because surprisingly there was the annual art festival during the days that we spend there.
Which made it even more beautiful for us, the only difficulty with that was, that all rooms in the city where booked, but we were lucky and found our friend just around the corner of the hotel that we had been the first night. That was a nice surprise!, and we could join him in his little Tippi, so our hotel problem was solved.
We loved our time there very much and we met interesting people and had good talks.
We left with a night bus to Bangkok airport sad and happy at the same time, happy because we had such a wonderful time and gained so many new friends in Thailand and learned so much from its people and culture and sad because we left it, but there is a saying that it is best to leave when you love it the most.
Thank you Thailand for all the amazing things and people you showed us, we will miss you and carry you with us, we will come back on day for sure !
