My Travels so far

This is th beginning of my travels soon I will be aboard the ship and only God know where will be be !!

Hey guys its sweet to see that people are following my site. I will try and keep the pics coming. Of course i have ton more that I am posting so you will need to seem them when I get back. Here are a few of the first few days here in thailand. The Place we are staying is right on the beach so it quite nice. We had and "Exploration day " where we had to go out into the area and find diffrent items. One of the places was a big budda statue. I have desided not to post those pics because of what the whole Budda thing really means. The whole day was great though, lovin every minute !

On one of our Exporation days we had the chance to actually see what the surrounding area is like !! Very Exciting and fun !! This is the Sattahip ( city I am in) which is basically a sub. of bangkok.

This is a city Taxi for the area. Really cool to ride in and cheap too. It cost 10 baut per person and even less if you travel as a group. 10 baht is = .29 CAD. So ya very cheap.

I took this pic as I was hanging out of the back of a taxi. It was fun and yet quite safe, just for those of you who were worried. The traffic laws here are very none exsistant. Infact i heard that if you move here from North Amarica, you need to take lessons on how to traffic works. You need to be a very confidant driver.

Good on ya Ben!
We are excited to see you with all your new friends Ben and read about your missionary adventures along with the many pcitures. Uncle Rick and I have visited Thailand when John was just a baby and Grandma and Pa Bowering babysat him in Victoria while we went into the Orient for a short visist. There is much poverty and the need for the gospel to be shared. We enjoyed Bangkock and its unique flavours and scenery. Thanks for your time to share on your blog . Your aunt and uncle in Wpg.
