    Great video Shawn, and one day soon I hope to walk the same paths of Sukothai as you both walked. Tell Tricia, she looked great in the Thai boxing ring (that was her, yes?!?). Wish you both continued adventures and happiness in your travels.

      Thanks, Randall! From north to south, Thailand is rich in cultural offerings. We look forward to getting back to the region, tasting the food, and honing our kickboxing skills. 😉
