We are officially travelling! We left Edinburgh yesterday morning for our journey down to London. We had a tumultuous start to the day when Ben discovered that McDonald’s does not do Happy Meals on the Breakfast Menu. Scream-sobbing ensued and he was quickly whisked back home – luckily we live a 2 minute walk away – where I produced some PB&J sandwiches. Of course, when he and I returned to McDonalds, suddenly the pancakes with fake-ple syrup that Chloe was eating didn’t look so bad… Stomachs full, we set off down South.
What can I say? It was a long day of driving through torrential rain, sucking back coffee and stopping for re-fueling – both automotive and human. At 8 pm, 10 hours after we left, we pulled into the drive at Old Orchard and settled into some takeaway from Mr Chong’s before settling into our beds.
Today has been a chill-out day and tomorrow the real fun begins. We’ll be catching a 9:35pm EVA Air flight direct to Bangkok, and I can’t wait to feel the familiar blast of heat that welcomes me to Thailand as I walk off the airplane.
So follow our adventures here on the blog, and I’ll also be attempting to keep my Instagram (@leighbc) updated with pics and videos so keep an eye out for us there too! Let’s do this!
