Happy New Year From Malaysia

 

LG malaysia sunsetHappy New Year from Langkawi, Malaysia! (from our recent newsletter)

For the last three weeks we have been house sitting with a large garden to water, two cats to play with and a car to drive to all the best beaches on the island. Want to try housesitting? I can highly recommend two books on house sitting, Break Free: The Ultimate Guide to Housesitting and How to Become a Housesitter and See the World. While sitting in the garden, we created many new movies to share about our recent trips to Guam and Hawaii, and our three months of travels in India a year ago.

Our Inspiration Travel Writing Contest is now open. Enter by February 14 with your “Place of Inspiration.” First prize is now $1,000usd. Share your story! We are continuing to publish the Gratitude Contest entries and expect to announce the winners the end of January.

We are off to Koh Lipe, Thailand where five years ago on January 18, 2009 we got engaged underwater! George remembers me saying as we left, “I wonder if we come back in five years what our life will be like then!” I cannot wait to see what Koh Lipe is like now!

Enjoy our article on seven years of celebrating New Years Eve together!

We wish you a wonderful 2014 filled with success, adventure and happiness!
