It is no secret that I have a special soft corner in my heart for Thailand; I have waxed eloquent about this on the blog often enough. The Land of Smiles is where the husband and I honeymooned, back in 2009. It is the place where we prayed for a daughter. It is the place we celebrated our daughter’s fourth birthday, keeping our promise to the Emerald Buddha to come back once we had a child. The country has given us several fond memories to look back upon and cherish and, needless to say, I would love to visit again.
As Thailand gears up to open international travel, I take this opportunity to share with you all some precious moments in the country that we hold close to our hearts. I have my fingers (and toes) crossed for the pandemic to ease soon, so we are free to fly to distant lands and explore them without fear. I can’t wait to rediscover our favourite Thai haunts, and ourselves in the process.
Until then, here is a glimpse of some special moments from our holidays in Thailand so far.

This is my entry for the #BlogYourThailand contest conducted by the Tourism Authority of Thailand, India. The theme I have chosen is ‘Rediscover’.
