After freezing our tails off in Vienna, Budapest, and especially in Ukraine, sunshine has never felt so good. We weren't planning on venturing into winter weather on this trip, so we didn't pack for cold, let alone snow. Two weeks in the wintery cities was enough to give us coughs and stuffy noses. A flight from icy Ukraine to southeast Asia was quite the shock. Here's a "before and after" just for kicks.
before: Kiev, Ukraine // 20 degrees and snowing
after: Bangkok, Thailand // 85 degrees and sticky hot
