From Thailand with a Book

Hello from Ao Nang, Thailand! Newsletter #31 August 6, 2013

After over two months on Lamai Beach, Koh Samui, we finished editing our memoir, Traveling in Sin, and traveled a bit more of Thailand. We went to Koh Phanghan, Tanote Beach in Koh Tao, Ranong, Little Koh Chang, Krabi and Ao Nang.

One of the best things has been seeing old friends and meeting new ones. We were able to visit with our friends, Taryn and Andrew who we traveled with in Borneo in 2009 and we wrote about in our memoir! Spending time with them in Koh Samui and Koh Tao was great. We look forward to a visit this week with Jeremy who was with us in Fiji when George asked me to go on the first sabbatical and we saw in the Fall in Hua Hin and who was in our wedding!

We appreciate all of you who read our newsletters, articles, website and BOOK! Thank you to everyone for your support of our journey and all our writing. We are participating in travel events in Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Guam, Oahu and Los Angeles!
