The Allure of Thailand- Photos from our 2004 visit

by Heidi

You may have noticed that at the top of both of our lists of favorite countries visited is Thailand.  Sometimes I wonder whether Thailand really is a better holiday destination than other places we have visited, or if we are just sentimental.  After all, Thailand was the first foreign country I ever visited.  Yep, even […]
