Stamping with my “chosen” family

This was the view from our balcony This was our room This was outside one of the restaurants (Baan Talay) I loved all these adorable little lanterns. They were really beautiful when it was all lit up at night. The entire resort was set in the middle of a lagoon, so there were fun little “rivers” and bridges throughout the resort. Here’s one of the cute bridges. The resort was huge! We were still discovering new
