Goodbye Thailand!

Well friends, today was officially our last full day in Thailand…where have the last 8 months gone?! We’ve been packing all week ~and thank goodness we started early~ or else our last day would have been a stressful one!

We had a full agenda today…lots of last minute errands and goodbyes said 😦 Honestly after being here for 8 months…it really does not feel like we are leaving tomorrow – I guess it’ll hit me when our alarm clock goes off at 3:30am tomorrow morning! Having got the chance to live and work overseas has been such an incredible experience and we’ve enjoyed every minute of it! The best part? The friends we’ve met along the way…we’re going to miss them so much!

~Saying Goodbyes

Last visit this morning to Mokador Cafe!
Last visit to see Malee 😦 She gave me one last haircut…going to miss her so much!

Last dinner with good family friends!

After deliberating what I wanted my last dinner to be (serious business here)…I had to go with a Thai Papaya Salad ~who knows when the next time I’ll be able to eat true & authentic Thai food!

Som Tom ~aka Papaya Salad~ you will be missed!

~ On that note, I’m beyond excited I received a Thai cookbook as a gift from a friend at school – can’t wait to try to recreate some of these dishes once we’re home!

Malee came one more time to help us with last minute packing and one last hug goodbye!

11 Bags later...

All set and ready to go!

Well it’s time to hit the hay! (Actually we’re debating on whether to just stay up until 3:30…so we can get back on Eastern Standard Time…we’ll see! We’re up in a few more hours anyways to catch a flight to Tokyo…and then Dallas…and then HOME 🙂 We are super excited to get home and even more excited to see some familiar faces!! 😀

The next time you hear from this dressed to dish gal…she’ll be STATE SIDE!
