We were supposed to be in Thailand by now, on a two week holiday. Unfortunately, that’s been thoroughly scuppered by protests closing both Bangkok airports. It’s a big disappointment, because my parents and several brothers were also due to fly in, and we were really looking forward to spending time with them all.

Fortunately though, KLM gave us a full refund on our long haul flights, and the rest of the things we’d booked were fully cancellable, so we’ve hardly lost any money. We still have 2 weeks of annual leave stretched in front of us though, so we spent yesterday rearranging plans.

Instead of a trip to Bangkok and Krabi, we’re now doing a trip to Cairo, Hurghada and Paris starting tomorrow. Pyramids and sunshine, here we come!
