Well, that’s it for 2 weeks. Songkarn holidays are here. Just finished for the term, so, on to the road trip. Where? Who knows. Looks like the northern route of Thailand. In the past we have taken to the road, packed the car and off we go. No booking hotels, just turn up and check in where we fancy.
For those who are not sure what Songkarn is about. Here is a little information for you:
The Songkran festival (Thai: สงกรานต์, pronounced [sǒŋ.krāːn], listen; from the Sanskrit word saṃkrānti, or literally “astrological passage”) is celebrated in Thailand as the traditional New Year’s Day from 13 to 15 April.
The traditional water pouring is meant as a symbol of washing away all of their sins and the bad and is sometimes filled with fragrant herbs when celebrated in the traditional manner. Although the main attraction for many is a free for all is to get completely soaked with water.
This last term has been very hard with sports tournament and students preparing for the final exam’s in May, June. So stay tuned for reports, pictures and facts of destinations of Thailand.
