Each Thai Journal contains some of the topics and themes listed below it. The files are in PDF format so you will need the Adobe Reader, or equivalent, to view them.  Here's a link to the Adobe web site where you can download and install the reader.

This particular picture was taken at Phi-Phi (pronounced pee-pee) island a couple of years ago.  Note just off to our right how the two bays almost touch at the isthmus. They are less than a football field apart. This island was heavily damaged during the tsunami in December of 2004.

I hope you will find these journals both informative and entertaining. They are listed in descending order on this page.  Still older Thai Journals may be found by clicking on this link:   


As an added distraction,  I am providing a link to an incredible trip I took a few years back to one of my other favorite places, Colorado.
