We started 2007 in Libya,
finished it in Thailand and had a wonderful year in between.
Of course, Zoë was the star attraction of our lives
this year. It has been great fun to watch her grow. She
started the year unable to crawl and finished the year
Libya was a great adventure, it was
one of our first big trips with Zoë. It was pretty
low key, a a good starter trip as
we were obliged to use a tourist agency for almost everything,
so we didn't have to deal with buses etc...
We struck out more independently during
the summer when we wandered the highlands of Mexico making
sure to avoid the heat of the lowlands. The highlight of
the summer was meeting up with my family in Puerto Vallarta
where we celebrated my parents 50th wedding anniversary
We took advantage of prime weather in
the fall to go camping almost every weekend that we could.
We have had great fun exploring the desert with our car,
particularly as we have gotten more experienced (and reckless?)
with our driving.
For Christmas this year, we linked up
with friends to bicycle most of the way from Chaing
Mai to Bangkok, great fun towing the kids!
Teaching this year has been fantastic!1
Robyn and I both love our classes and our schedules have
been ideal, we love what we are teaching!
