83days till 5nites Bangkok, 1 nite kanchanaburi and 4 nite patong.

It's going to be a very special trip. My mum helped me organise it she said my dad will need a holiday. A couple of weeks later my mum was diagnosed with lung cancer and died six weeks later on 14/9/12. This trip is my mums last wish for her family

Thanks Mossy! Interestingly enough, a group of our favorite travel buddies are from Perth! Sadly, they are also going to be in SE Asia, but we are missing them by a month, as they have a wedding scheduled in Phuket in November. Anyways, thanks for the lovely response! It is still nearly 2 months away but we are already losing sleep in excitement. We will be in Bangkok, Northern Thailand, Krabi, Phuket, and Koh Phangan over December and January :D

Malie: I am so sorry to hear of your loss :( Enjoy they way your mama would have wanted you to!

MalieMorningt.... In a way, it's good that you still have a couple of months to wait until you start your trip. Grieving takes awhile, and you are probably still a bit numb with the shock of losing your mother so quickly... You have some time to let things settle a bit.

When you finally do go, I think it will be very poignant for you and your family. I hope it is a lovely time for you, and that you will feel your mother close to you...

My heart goes out to you Malie. I understand what you are going through as I lost my Mum to cancer last year, and my Dad was diagnosed with Kidney and lung cancer this week.

I hope you have the most wonderful trip, and I'm sure your Mum will be enjoying it with you in spirit.
