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.

The Grand Palace, Bangkok, Thailand
Now that we've finished the rigorous CELTA credential program and have begun the much more lightweight TEYL (Teaching English to Young Learners), we've had time to pick up being tourists again. We visited the highly recommended Grand Palace which is the big time Buddhist temple here in Bangkok. Everything that appears to be the color gold, is actually 24 karat gold leaf. The palace consists of many temples, and a miniature replica of Angkor Wat -- the 12th century temple located in Cambodia.
