BIG Ending.

While I was growing up, our family used to sing songs together (especially while in the car). Towards the end of each song, my dad would say "Okay, now everyone ... BIG ending, BIG ending!!" And, we would all finish the song, singing as loudly and fully as we could. It was a great chorus.

Eric and I are nearing the end of our year volunteering internationally. Our final stop was originally supposed to be India, but (long story short) we ran into some visa issues in December and had to change plans at the last minute. We have found ourselves in Bangkok, Thailand - and are making new plans to finish this year with our version of the "BIG ending".

Eric and I are offering our services as volunteer photographers to a number of different groups here in Thailand. We sent a volunteer proposal to a number of groups last weekend - some that have been recommended to us, and some we found online. We've been very pleasantly surprised by the response we've received, and already have arrangements made with three NGOs here in Thailand. Throughout the course of the next month, we'll be spending time with groups here in Bangkok, Northern Thailand and Eastern Thailand.

So, we'll be spending the next month traveling, learning and taking lots of photos. And, when all is said and done, we will have many more new stories and photos to share. Sounds like the perfect BIG ending to me.
