Only 5 days till we (Bev, Margaret, & Keri) leave for our 21 day trip to Southeast Asia where we will be visiting the country of Thailand!!!!
Bev just got her passport in the mail today. Her old one would have expired in 4 months so she was encouraged to obtain a new one as per Thailand regulations. Because we will only be there for 21 days, we did not have to get a traveler visa – SWEET!
