    I love Thailand, but haven’t been there in a long time. I was traveling solo, so I only had to worry about myself. To have to keep your family safe and comfortable while exploring and to be productive with your photography was quite an undertaking… well done!

    Looking at your photos, we have been to many of the same places. I was, at the time, shooting film. Everyone now thinks nothing of thousands of shots on a couple of SD cards. Changing film every 36 frames while speeding through the canals in a narrow boat in humid sweltering heat was taxing. I would love to go back with my Fujifilm cameras and really see how much digital photography has changed things for touring.

    Thanks for sharing.

      Hi,
      First of all thanks a lot for your comment.
      I have never traveled alone. It is true that sometimes I wish I could do it in order to focus 100% on the photo. My Fujifilm X-T2 in one hand and my Canon A1 in the other.
      But I also like to travel with family and try to integrate my children in photos that I would usually take with strangers.
      I hope to be able to return to Asia very quickly and continue to discover this incredible culture.
      See you soon.
      Yoann

    Thank you so much Yoan for sharing the story of your travels in Thailand.
    We have been visiting Thailand, Vietnam and malaysia annually for 25 years and love it. Our two daughters are now married with children and they agree that visiting other cultures changed their lives and view of those around them in a very positive way. Lovely pictures also.
    If you ever go back check out Chiang Mai and the Mae Hong Song loop with it’s amazing hill tribes. Another awesome country with very welcoming people and amazing beaches but far less tourists is Vietnam.
    I have several videos on Vimeo. If you do a search ” Vimeo Jim Mitchell Canada ” you should find them.
    Happy travels.

      Hello and thank you very much for your comment.
      I hope to be able to visit the northern part of the country. It was very hot when we went there and I was a little scared with my children. We are not used to this kind of heat (not yet …).
      We chose this country because it was our first trip and it is true that the neighboring countries also attract me a lot.
      Thank you for your advice and your videos, they remind me of good times with my loved ones !
