Thailand: Life in Lamai

 

music thailandFrom our Latest News:

Hello from Koh Samui, Thailand. Lately we have been enjoying life in Lamai Beach, Koh Samui, Thailand. See photos above and below for the band George has been playing with at Rock Island House Bar and our new friends from this visit. When we were here last Poi was a tiny eight-month old and now she is a wandering, talking drumming toddler! We love her smile in the photo!

We have added over twenty-five videos to our YouTube channel at their house but over forty-five new videos since Jan 1! A giant thanks to our friends, Jessica and Ted, for sharing their fiber optic Wi-Fi, gorgeous home, pool and support! We could not have done it without them!

Jessica also introduced us to all her friends and we enjoyed a block party, Aussie day celebration, Friday night performance with Mimi Moore and afternoon bowling for Chinese New Year. So much of life depends on whom you meet, we are grateful to our friends in Lamai! We are on our way North in Thailand to experience our first visit to Chiang Rai and to get a new visa! But we will be back in Lamai again later this year.

We are grateful to Jessie Voigts of Wandering Educators for hosting our live online Google on Air hangout to announce the winners of our Gratitude Travel Writing Contest. The Inspiration Travel Writing Contest is open, has a first prize of $1,000usd and closes on Valentine’s Day! We look forward to sharing your inspiring stories.
