The Clips and Trips blog was put together in preparation for our leaving the U.S. on an indefinite world travel adventure which started around August of 2009 and returned us home in December of 2012. If you want to see where it all began, read our mission statement from before we left.

A Successful First Visa Run

We've had some things left to do before leaving the country - pick up anti malaria and anti diarrhea medication (Who wants the liquid poopies?), find a way to secure our luggage, and most importantly, get our 60 day tourist visa to Thailand.

Having to go to the Thai Consulate in Los Angeles, I feared the worst. I anticiapted long lines, lots of confusion, and lots of questions relating to our stay in Thailand. So, we went early. Turns out it was easy - no questions, no long lines, no confusion. We walked in, dropped off our application and passport, and came back the following day to pick up our visa. I doubt that business is done so efficiently in SE Asia. But, who knows, maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised. I do love surprises.
