We're Not Going Home Yet
Despite the fact that we have run out of the original $10,000 budget for our year-long journey around the world, we are not going home.
I've been able to get some extra cash by doing web development work on my MacBook Pro and William has gotten money from other sources.
So we've got enough money to finish out the adventure.
For now we've settled down in Chiang Mai, Thailand for about a month. We've got a nice apartment so that I can finish out some big web projects.
When I say "nice" apartment, I mean, "the nicest serviced apartment in Chiang Mai." We've got two rooms and two full baths, a nice kitchen and livingroom. It's also got a pool and workout facilities.
And the kicker? It costs almost the exact same price as the crappy hostels in Australia.
Because of the riots in Bangkok and the swine flu scare, people just aren't traveling to Thailand. Which means the foreigners that are here are getting sweet deals during this tourism slump.
By the way - the riots that you see on TV make Thailand look like it's on the verge of civil war. We haven't seen any riots or craziness go down since we've been here. The riots took place in a few small areas of Bangkok. Everywhere else is pretty much business as usual... except for the whole tourism slump.
Oh, and if you haven't noticed already, I've made some changes to the site. Most notably, the photo section is now thumbnailed, the video page now shows the popular videos on the right and I updated the press page with some media hype we've been getting. Check it out.
