From Jamie's Philippines Pics

We have also had the opportunity to travel to some amazing places in China, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Bali. We have archived all of our travels and living experiences abroad; and if you wish, you can read about our adventures by finding the archives on the right of this page and by checking our Photo Album.

We appreciate all of our family and friends who have stayed in touch and emailed us with encouraging words throughout the year. We hope you will continue to keep us in your thoughts as we continue our adventure of living abroad teaching at an international school. For those who have stumbled upon our site, check out the "About Eric and Jamie" section on the right for more information.

Thanks for checking us out!

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness."
- Mark Twain

"Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends."
- Maya Angelou

Thailand - Day 15 - 17 - Koh Chang

From Koh Chang Island

Our last 3 days in Koh Chang were spent relaxing on the beach by the ocean. I made a nice little pyramid the first day and a great ziggurat the next in the sand. No tools! I took pictures of the pyramid but didn't get a chance to because some Thai kids kicked my ziggurat down. We both continued our book reading and we were able to just chill and relax on our final two days.

We found an "international" pharmacy and bought some cream for our feet. This helped tremedously. Apparently, sand flies ate us alive the night we stayed up and talked to our family and waiting for the computer to charge. I stopped counting after I reached 50 bites on my right foot and 40 on my left. The anti-inflammatory steriod cream worked wonders although they charged us $15 for it.

Our meals consisted of more Thai food for the most part. Breakfast was provided by our resort although it wasn't really that good except for the toast and fruit. Jamie and I have become quite the fans of hot tea though and drink it with almost every meal now.

By the last day, we were actually ready to get back to China. Griffey is being shipped on January 1st, so we have to prepare for that. We'll be spending New Year's Eve in Hong Kong and we are really excited about that.
