Tenielle is a 26 year old physical therapist currently living in Edmonton, AB, although she has really started to wonder why anyone would possibly want to live on a glacier. She has travelled through all of central and south america, and is looking forward to travelling to any continent that does not have the word america in it. Tenielle is going to have a hard time parting with her electronics, most recently guitar hero has topped the charts. Tenielle has a serious crush on anything to do with calculator watches, mullets, tight jeans, bad moustaches. She has most recently dislocated a bone in her foot on a hard game of dance dance revolution.
Jen is a 22 year old teachers assistant currently working with grade 6 in Leduc. Jen lives with Tenielle, and two of them have been pretty much inseperatable for the past year. Jen is looking forward to her first backpacking trip, and Tenielle is wondering where the hell she is going to store all her shoes and purses. Jen will also have a hard time parting with her cell phone, as she sends close to 100 texts a day. Jen has a serious crush on .....well, we'll leave that for another time. Jen says she likes sushi, but she really only likes the rice..haha. Jen is not currently injured in any way, so Tenielle is going to make her carry the jewelry in her pack.

so, we met up with lisa and tara on bottle beach. we stayed there for a few days, it was really nice and quite and you started to feel like a family there after a few days, everyone knew each other and we had fun joking with all the locals. Last night they had a "big" BBQ, bonfire and "free" games, which is funny, cause nothing in Thailand is free. Jen won the game musical chairs and her prize was a mickey of thai whiskey and a bag of chips!! We took the ferry to Kho Tao today, and signed up for some diving in the am. We got Thai massages, and then we taught the kids some english afterwards. We had alot of fun joking with them, and we told the kids that the ... read more
