Lonely Planet & me

I should be in bed. But I'm making a typed, color copy list of potential activities for our upcoming vacation. That's what Type-A people do. And I'm just going to own it. 

The review I'm unexpectedly excited about stumbling across? 

The Snake Farm

I hate snakes. But the reviews made it sound so compelling that I added it to the list.

See?! I'm inspired! 

We've been through Bangkok a few times now. And I've never really been a big fan. I mean, I do love the amenities, but the city itself is just kind of overwhelming to me. Generally speaking for us, Thailand means meetings. Bangkok means the shopping district. I hate shopping for more than about an hour and I'm not a fan of big cities. (Says the girl who lives in a city of 10 million;) This time we don't have any meetings. It's vacation. 

I booked a hotel on the Riverfront. And it just changed the whole idea of the city for me. I've been marking up my Lonely Planet map and loving it. I'm completely excited. 

I should still go to bed. Because the trip isn't for a couple of weeks, and that spreadsheet won't matter when my kids wake up in the morning. 

Good night. I'll be sleeping with my travel guide under my pillow.

Fantasia Lagoon is a GREAT place to spend little boy energy! It's a water park on the top of a mall and it's away from the touristy places, so it's mostly locals. I thought the prices were decent and there's tons of kid areas. Plus, they have food at the park and food at the mall below it. I recommend it!
