SawaDee-Krap and KapKun-Krap! I’m writing to you from exotic NJ,US for two reasons: 1. I much appreciate your google-search-timeframe-script and want to say “thanks”, and 2) once here at your site, I see we may have something in common: love of Southern Asia, particularly Thailand (trips: 9, duration: 18 months, years: 2005-2012).
I’ve used your script to add the gamut of 1yr/1mnth/1wk/1day/1hr searches in firefox and chrome, with the 1 year as default. I see that every search I add is represented by the same icon you provide, so I’m going to see if I can learn how to edit a way to change the icons on the “add” box. I then create edit a generic google “G” search icon by superimposing a label (e.g., “1yr”, etc.) on each one.
Regarding Thailand, from your postings, it looks like you may have covered more ground and learned more about the whole of the country than I did. I spend the majority of my time in Chiang Mai and in villages near Korat, Nakon Rachasima, towards the border with Cambodia. Fortunately, I learned how to cook many Thai foods l love (from a cooking school, remote old-school villages, and street vendors). Truly amazing experiences.
I’m now planning travel in New Zealand.
Mike from NY here (Southern Trip in 2005) – I just found your site. Great information and photos. I really enjoy your writing style and want to thank you for this great summary of all your trips and the food!!! Looking forward to reading about more of your adventures.
Hey Mike, great to hear from you! I hope all is well and we get a chance to catch up next time I’m out East. Or in Thailand, as the case may be.
