We reached the Beach.
There’s sand, there’s salt water…

Drive on the left-hand side of the road
Time zone: GMT+5:30 …. say what?
It’s actually our second country “half an hour off”. Myanmar was our first as it is GMT+6:30. Fun fact: In Myanmar they drive on the right-hand side of the road but most of their cars have their steering wheel on the right… because they used to drive on the left but switched in the 1970 and most of the cars are either old or come from neighboring countries were they drive on the left! -at least when we visited 5 years ago!
I also went to a country with “3/4hour off”. Nepal is GMT +5.45
you can thank me later when you get the question on Trivial Pursuit 😉

I always seat by the window.
I want to be able to have the first peak at the land beneath our wings.
Is it mainly Green? Brown? Blue?
Coming out of the clouds as we fly closer and closer to the land we are about to explore.
I can feel the excitement of the journey to come.

Ready for our next adventure… and the obligatory airport picture.
First trip as a traveling family of 3 (because we are still a family of 4, even if one is at college hence not traveling with us)
Also, get ready for multiple posts in the next week or so (traveling will do that to my blog 😜)
