Weâ€™re back! Thanks for coming back toÂ NoPeanutButter.com and sorry for the hiatus. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Yearâ€™s. We had an amazing time in Thailand and didnâ€™t want to leave (I tried to convince Jay that we should teach in Thailand and make $2 a day rather than coming back to Korea).Â We got back on January 1st, but due to a little Thailandâ€™s Revenge (Montezumaâ€™s cousin in the East) I was unable to post a blog or photos until now. I am feeling much better now but a word to the wise, when they say donâ€™t drink the water, donâ€™t even use it to brush your teeth!
Other than the water, Thailand was truly a paradise. Southeast Asia has its similarities and its differences from Korea. I like to use the slogan for Thailandâ€™s Chang Beer to describe it, â€œSame Same But Differentâ€. The people of Thailand were so kind and welcoming (slightly different than what we have experienced in Korea), the food was unbelievably good (Korea has some tasty dishes but they donâ€™t compare), the scenery was breathtaking, and the weather was much more our style (Iâ€™ll give Korea another chance once Spring rolls around). Overall, we both loved Thailand and are eager to see more of Southeast Asia. We hear Vietnamâ€™s beaches are even better, which is hard to believe is even possible.
We have so many photos and experiences to share with everyone that we have decided to post several Thailand entries. We are going to post one or two a day for probably the next two weeks. Check back often because we had so many great adventures in Thailand that you donâ€™t want to miss hearing about.
