I know this post is a day late, but wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, or just Happy Holidays!

We hope everyone had a great time with their family.

Santa Claus & (Emily & Daraius) in an undisclosed destination

A huge Christmas tree.

Is that a teddy bear with long antlers?

We’ve been traveling and had a long travel day yesterday (December 25) which involved an overnight flight, an aborted speedboat ride over very choppy seas, a delayed ferry trip, wading in waist high water with our luggage to get to a boat, and a longtail boat ride in pitch darkness to get to our destination.

And all along I was thinking just what a great blog post it would make. 🙂

But we got there safely and and are really enjoying our time off with family whom we see once a year.

So I won’t be posting much this week!

We’ve been extremely blessed and lucky to have had a great trip so far including Emily’s favorite First Class seat which had a separate bed complete with a mattress and pillow top cushioning.

I can sleep anywhere (even standing up!), but this was the only flight during which Emily slept for a long, long time.  More on that later!

  1. Look’s like Emily is a fan of the new Lufthansa F (B747-400)
    I had the pleasure to experience the new LH F on an A340-300 earlier this month, an amazing product!

    Enjoy the Holiday Season!

  2. That bed looks great! Hope you have a wonderful visit with your families.

  3. I love that bed, cant wait to fly that bird 🙂

  4. “a delayed ferry trip, wading in waist high water with our luggage to get to a boat, and a longtail boat ride in pitch darkness to get to our destination.”

  7. I was going to say the Park Hyatt Paris until you mentioned the part about wading in water and the longtail boat ride. Enjoy your time in Thailand.
