I have a big announcement to make today! This will be the very last Thursday Things on A Teaspoon of Happiness. I have decided to start a second blog to chronicle our lives and travel, so I will be moving all of my personal blogging there. My reason behind starting this blog is I just didn’t feel all of that other stuff was the best fit for A Teaspoon of Happiness anymore, and I found myself holding back when I really wanted to share. I want the focus here to remain on the food and being a resource for great recipes. I’m so excited about this change, and I really hope that you’ll follow along because I love sharing my life with you. Of course, I’ll still keep you updated on what’s going on in my life here, but just in less detail. If you want the whole story, you’ll have to come visit me at my new blog – Love in a Suitcase.
This Thursday I’m in Almaty with Marc and his team for the last two games of 2013. We took the train all the way from Kokshetau. It took 26 hours. I know, that’s a really long time. I actually calculated the approximate speed for the whole trip, and I don’t think the train went over 40 miles per hour. You can read more about our little adventure on my new blog. It was definitely an experience. We’ll be staying in Almaty for the next few days and then flying to Phuket for our vacation on Sunday.
I can’t even tell you how excited I am to visit to Thailand. First of all, it’s going to be the first really Asian country that we visit – technically Kazakhstan is in Asia too, but it barely feels like it because of all the Russian influences here, especially in Kokshetau. Secondly, the food. I can’t wait to try all the different Thai foods. I can’t wait to compare some dishes to their American counterparts/copycats, I can’t wait to try all sorts of new dishes and I can’t wait to learn how to cook them. I’ve been compiling a list of foods I want to sample while I’m there. And, of course, I’m also excited to be at the beach and away from the frozen temperatures of our Kazakh home.
