The Changing Seasons: July 2018

July has been the epitome of summer, filled with vacation trips, visiting with family & old friends who have returned from far & wide, and lots & lots of sun!

It all started with a trip to Bangkok, Thailand (began at the end of June, spilling into early July) with my parents, my sister & her daughter (visiting from Phoenix, AZ). Bangkok has been a family favourite as it is easily accessible, and teeming with great food, fun shopping & hospitable people.

The month concluded with a trip to Ipoh, Malaysia (began at the end of July, spilling into early August) with my parents. It is a place we return to in order to reconnect with our roots as Loving Husband’s family hails from these parts. Ipoh is still a charming, small town with beautiful environs with lots to offer.

This my contribution to The Changing Seasons.

  1. Oh. My. Goodness! I don’t know even where to begin. These pictures are amazing. How is that hotel so beautifully located near a mountain AND on the water? I have never seen anything like that… just breathtaking.

    So glad you had such a great time in Thailand. It is a bucket list place for me for sure!!!

    I don’t think I have ever heard much about Malaysia, but I am now adding it to my list too! Hope you are so well, dear friend!<3 ❀

    1. I have been thinking of you – especially when I had all that Thai food & Dosai in Ipoh. I have been missed reading your posts – have been so dreadful in keeping up with reading and correspondence, and the posting has dwindled to such a minimum on WP.

      But it is soooooo good to hear from you!

  2. How nice to have a trip start the month and end it!
    For me – the main excitement was mid July – opposite of yours!
    Anyhow – love the pics because they give a good variety and nice feel for those places !
