Think of Thailand and beautiful, tropical beaches probably spring to mind. Sun, sea, sand and blue skies. Well I can confirm, from a week’s worth of experience, that it also rains in Thailand and when it rains, it rains hard.
There is also not a lot to do in Thailand when you are stuck indoors owing to monsoon conditions. We read. A lot. And we caught up on series 1 of Homeland, I know, I know, so 2011, but hey. Still ploughing through season 2.
This photo sums up our experience of tropical paradise so we will just have to return another day and have a second go at Thailand.
