Thailand – Destination Experts Victoria, Chris & Liam

We are a small family (Victoria, Chris and Liam) living mostly in Thailand and we write about it on our blog Nesting Nomads. 11 years ago, Chris and I were the 1. We have been to Thailand for the first time and after we got over the initial culture shock, the country just wouldn't let us go.

That's how we ended up returning almost every year and staying longer and longer at a time. The north of Thailand has become our home in the meantime.

Despite the abrupt departure from Western Australia due to the Tiger Airways disaster, we were and are again thrilled by the landscape, wildlife and the road trip. The national parks in the Top End of the Northern Territory are worth the sometimes endlessly long drives, as well as Karijini and Cape Range are must-sees. In the southwest we liked Esperance and surroundings best. Sydney and Melbourne are two metropolises that are really worth living in. Situated by the sea, both cities offer vibrant life and beach recreation close by. On weekends, it is easy to roam through nature away from the hustle and bustle of the city. read more
