Greetings! This is my first post here. My wife and I are in our 30’s, and I’m a UX Designer by trade. We will soon be putting our stuff in storage, moving out of our house, and hitting the road. I work remotely, so my job situation is fine for traveling for the time being.
We are planning our first stop. For our first stop, we are looking to go somewhere for a couple months to decompress (had some stressful personal events of late that we need time to deal with), do some studying, and reading – ideally in a beautiful, warm, healthy, relatively inexpensive place.
One major thing is that I have Type 1 Diabetes and have an insulin pump. While I’ll be loading up on pump supplies and insulin before I leave, it would be nice to be somewhere that has some medical facilities or access to pharmaceuticals.
The two main places we’re considering for our first stop (March/April 2015) are Bali or south Thailand (been looking at Ko Lanta, Ko Samui, etc). Which of the two would you recommend? I’m especially interested in solid Internet service, as my job depends on it, as I’m sure you all can appreciate.
