From our latest newsletter: 

On June 27, we went to Nathon to extend our visas so we have another 30 days in Thailand for a total of three months. So if you are wondering where in the world are Lisa and George? We are in Koh Samui, Thailand.

Our friend, Arn, took us sailing last week. We had a really enjoyable day on the water and his daughter, Angie was a great co-captain and attempted to catch us a fish for our dinner.
