Traveling in Thailand


Koh Lipe Sunset Beach 2014Our latest news: Traveling in Thailand

Hello from Koh Samui, Thailand. We spent two months here in 2013 and edited our memoir! It seems fitting to be here working on the paperback edition of Traveling in Sin. A year ago we had just begun our first travel-writing contest. Now we are in the midst of contest #4 and in 2013 over five hundred writers from over fifty countries participated! We hope you will share a story with us!

Our recent travels in Thailand have taken us to Koh Lipe which is where we got engaged five years ago. It was lovely to return to our favorite spot on Sunrise Beach and to explore Sunset beach for the first time. We stayed for three nights at the Regent Phuket Cape Panwa and enjoyed a luxurious Pool Villa, dined in the Grill and had drinks to celebrate January 18, which was the date we met seven years ago in Santa Monica. While we were there, we were invited to be on the KPNW Radio show with Robb Holloway to talk about life on the road. He read George’s five part series in the Huffington Post on “Is Panama truly a Retirement Haven?” and wanted to chat with us!

  1. I have this mental list of places around the world I would love to explore and photograph, Thailand is one of those places that continues to hover around the top of the list!! I have to check out Prevention Magazine, I know my parents have a copy and I will be sure to borrow it.
