Krabi, Thailand


Krabi was the perfect ending to our excursion through Thailand...3 cities, 3 flights, 3 kids, 7 days. It was an adventure. Whew we got to Krabi, we laid by the pool, ate yummy food, and just relaxed. The beach was like nothing i had ever seen; rocky cliffs meeting right up with the green ocean. If i clicked my heels together right now i'd dream of going back here for a day....

Malaysia and Thailand= Best trip ever

I fell in love with Malaysia...or maybe I fell in love with Tanya's life there. I'm still not sure which one it is. But as our trip came to an end i was asking Tanya if we could move in with her.


We had an amazing time to say the least. Tanya and Tai were outstanding hosts. And Tanya is quite the tour guide. She showed Gabe and I the ins and outs of Malaysia. We packed in three days of intese sight seeing before taking off to Thailand. From muay thai kick boxing class, to gorgeous mosques, butterfly sanctuaries, monkey sitings, and quality time with kiki and kaile.... we were on cloud nine. Malina was a dream. We dragged her everywhere and she smiled through it all. Here's a few pictures of our site seeing in Malaysia....


260+ stairs to reach this temple



one of the many monkey encounters



id Jamek Mosque:The oldest mosque in KL...Malina forgot her birka









Tanya and i trying to look submissive...i think she looks more seductive, she can't help it...














beautiful grounds of the butterfly sanctuary...

We left the babies at home with sweet Ivy, and went to the best buffet ever...amazing Indian, Thai, and Malay food. Yummy!
