  • Michelle Miller are amazing as usual. I have left you a message on FB and thanked you for the new "like" as well as letting you know I will be in Thailand in February. I am thinking I should come visit you for a few days? Can you put up with an old friend if I promise to help out? I would love to see you and Laos. My email is I am sure internet access isn't easy there but if you get a chance check out my FB message to you and tell me more about where you are, how to get there(if you don't mind company for a few days), and any insider Thailand info and Laos info. I am giving myself a month on a medium sized budget. Been saving all my change in a jar for 5 years to make this trip!! I hope to hear from you. Best wishes, Michelle
