Our Time In Thailand........A Look Back

We have lived in two very different yet wonderful places in Thailand for the past 2 years and 4 months.  Looking back on our experiences, adventures, and new friends we can't help but shake our heads an say, "Wow, what a great time!"

Forever grateful, we send giant hugs and thank you's from the bottom of our hearts to the following people: Nok and her family, Ursula, Varangkana Sinor, Sursasak, Chissy, Fon Fon and Joe, Sengthong and Somphone, Lisette and Bim Bim, Chiara, Sacha, Jmayel, and Eden The Dog, Peggy and Bob, and Patrick. And, we will always remember the many others we have met along the way from all across the planet.

Please enjoy some of our favorite pictures from all over Thailand.
