I got writer's block (the reason for the blank journaling). I am having a really hard time finding the right words to describe the group I was traveling with. Let's just say "traveling with 12 strangers in a foreign country came with MANY challenges." Which is a really polite way of describing the dynamics of the trip. Hey that sentence is a start! I am hoping by posting this page it will motivate me to finish the journaling.
The large photo is a composite of at least 4 photos. OK I'll admit it, I am addicted to photo merging! Just wait till I get a panoramic camera...then I will be merging panoramic shots with panoramic shots! Can you say "fold outs"!!!
SHCG: and just for clarification, my last gallery post was not my 1st digital scrapbooking page. It was the 1st page in this new vacation album. (I have already made approx 50 digital pages.)

We huddled just inside the Grand Palace in Bangkok. Twelve strangers, from three countries, had come together for a 12-day tour. We suspiciously eyed each other as well as our guide, Amy. Little did she know how challenging it was going to be to navigate this group through the Temples & Tigers of Thailand.
Trepidation (or should I say, TRIPidation) was already setting in as Amy gave us but the briefest of explanations on the layout of the palace. “If we get separated, meet back here”, she said. But like the Sierra Club's no one left behind hikes, I knew if you lost your guide you WOULD be left behind! so I had no intentions of letting Amy out of my sights.
