|The umbrella wasn't for rain, the gals needed some shade!|
We were joined for two weeks of that adventure by Stephen, our son, and various members of Thoom's Thai family either hosted or joined us for part of those travels. However, throughout the trip, two very special ladies were a constant integral part of the experience.
I owe many thanks to Thoom and Suzanne for making the trip so enjoyable. I thought it more than appropriate to share with our blog readers a sampling of photographs of the two of them as we traveled from Bangkok to Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai to Sarakham, Koh Samui and back to Bangkok.
