Welcome to Thistle Nation


Welcome to the state-side site to StevieVolz.wordpress.com – Thistle elder Stacie Volz and her husband Stevie are traveling to Burma aka Myanmar for two years to teach!  20 years ago Stevie and I used what was then a newfound technology – emails – to stay in touch while I spent 8 months in Washington D.C. working at National Geographic.  We wrote each other almost every day, and on some days two or three times.  It helped me survive being 3,000 miles from my friends and family.  And bonus Stevie turned out to be a hilarious writer.  So welcome to his state-side site… and head over to his site to armchair travel with Stac and Stevie as they have the adventure of their lives.

  1. I love this idea of the Thistle Nation blog…. vicarious adventures through fellow Thistles!! Stacie and Steve – flying off to certain culture shock. hmmm…. will there be a Starbucks there?? I seem to remember Kentucky Fried Chicken being really popular in Thailand 16 years ago….. alright, updates!!!


    1. Murph – thanks I am counting on you to share your Thistle Adventures with us all… only you can take a simple trip to the grocery store and turn it into a laugh-out-loud adventure!
