Last Day At The Beach

What a wonderful time in such a beautiful place! I have had a Thai massage – where you are pushed and pulled in all directions and feel like a million dollars afterwards, kayaked, snorkeled, taken a motorcycle all over the island, watched the preparation for serving food to the ancestors and leaving it on the alter (plus lighting fireworks early […]

More From the Sea

Yesterday all I did was blog in the morning and read all afternoon. The excitement of the day was the snake chasing the lizard up a tree, right in front of where i was laying, (of course) and everyone came to watch the 2 struggle and eventually watch it eat the lizard and head back up the tree. NOT ME! […]

The Andaman Sea

Tuk tuk to airplane to tiny airplane to mini-van to high speed motorboat to scooter, and we finally arrived here in Koh Phayam. PARADISE!!! It was a long adventure, but so, so, so, so worth it. Thank you Ina!! We found a little bamboo hut rustic resort, that is so cute, and here we are. Last night I picked the […]

Chiang Mai

In the morning we got up, geared up, took the bike out and went to see a waterfall before we headed to Chiang Mai. Afterwards we grabbed a tuk tuk and off we went to the airport. We landed in Chiang Mai to find even more smoke and pollution. We were heartbroken as we had heard so many amazing things […]

More Elephants!!!!

We have so many photos and videos. Here are a few more!

Bathing the Elephants and Golden Buddha Statues

The next morning we woke up early to watch the sunrise and bathe the elephants!! Our guide met us and we waited for the “ladies” to come out of the forrest. Once they did, we climbed on, and took them down to the river for a little bath. We had so much fun!!!! Once the bath was over they went […]

The Elephant Village

This adventure is in the top 5 things I have ever done, if not top 2. (Number 1 being helping my sister in the delivery room). Around 8:30am our guide, M came to our hotel to pick us up and take us to the Elephant Village. Once we were there we met the Elephants, learned their language, how to speak […]

Luang Prabang

We flew into Luang Prabang last night to find the area covered in a smoke or smog like haze. As there are only 6 million people in the whole country we did not think it could be smog but wondered what it could be. Turns out we are here during the 3 months when all the farmers burn the old […]

Siem Reap

Hoi An to Siem Reap!!!

The adventure of all adventures!!! We left Hoi An to go to the airport in Danang to fly to Laos. Once we got there had a beer and went to the gate as you do to only find out the flight has been delayed, which is a very uncommon occurrence in Vietnam. We went to get help, because now we […]

After Mr. Rooster woke me up at 3am, I was a little grumpy so the amazing banana pancakes (from the bananas in the yard) with bacon was an exciting sight! After breakfast, off we went to head back to Hanoi, the dirtiest, most smog filled, exciting city I have ever been to. The thick layer of smog hangs over the […]
