I’m a little short on time today, so my A-Z Challenge post will be very photo heavy. Letter of the day is S. You’d think that coming from Sydney this would be an easy choice for me. I mean, my home city is beautiful so why wouldn’t I write about it?! And I will … just not today. Truth be told I don’t take my camera out with me when I’m home. This is a situation I should rectify and believe me, I keep reminding myself that I need to get out and take some photos of Sydney in all her glory.
I’ve decided to take you somewhere I haven’t yet mentioned in my blog … Thailand! More specifically – Sukhothai, which is located in northern Thailand and by that I mean if you take Bangkok as the centre, Sukhothai is about 400km to the north. I travelled there by local bus from Bangkok and it took about 7 hours. Sukhothai was the capital of one of Thailand’s first ancient kingdoms and was founded in 1238. It was in existence for approximately 300 years before falling by the wayside. The old capital is today a large area of some 70 square kilometres, full of stunning temples and statues of buddha. The best way to see the area is by bicycle. It’s a easy, flat ride and one of the most enjoyable ways to spend a day!
