Hello, lovelies! Greetings from beautiful Thailand where my little tribe and I have been living for the last two months. Yes, dear friends, my long awaited Southeast Asian dream has finally come true… And I’m brimming with happiness : )

I have mentioned it so many times in my previous posts, that I’m totally in LOVE with Southeast Asia. For the past 10 years my partner and I had the pleasure of traveling around this stunningly beautiful part of the world. But every time when we got back home, we realized that we needed more than just a holiday. We desperately missed our beloved Southeast Asia and never stopped dreaming of moving here with our two monkeys. And to be honest, we weren’t happy anymore in our home country.

So, one freezing cold winter day, we realized that we were ready for the big change! It was time to make our greatest dream come true. We sold absolutely everything we had and bought one way tickets to Thailand. We’ve been waiting for this moment 5 long years but it was all worth it!

We decided to start our Southeast Asian adventure with the beautiful island of Phuket. We’ve been here before and we knew there were less touristy areas that would be perfect for us. After making some research, we decided to live in the peaceful and quite Rawai area. We rented a lovely two-bedroom house and we feel so happy here. The kids, especially are over the moon with happiness : )

We’ll be living in Thailand 6 months. After that we’ll spend one month in magical Bali and then we’ll move to the gorgeous town of Hoi An in Vietnam. Ah, we can’t wait for all those amazing adventures!

Meanwhile, I’ll be sharing the most exciting moments of our great adventure on our family blog for vegan recipes and travel adventures. And here, I will continue to inspire you with some lovely interior and home decor ideas : )

I’m sorry that this year I’m not in the usual Christmas mood… I guess it’s because we escaped the cold and gloomy winter in Europe and we’re enjoying the tropical life to the fullest : )

Xoxo : ) Wishing you with all my heart a magical month of December and beautiful and romantic Christmas holidays with your loved ones!

LOVE,

Gerry
