Thai airways serves you foodstuff! Even for just a 2 and a fifty percent hour flight! 🙂

There is a strange issue that transpires when you stay abroad. People take weekend visits to Vietnam or Japan or Korea or, in my case, Thailand. In the states this would be like getting a journey to Florida or California or just to a random town in the midwest. I never assumed I would have the life-style of touring to yet another state over a weekend, and still right here I am.

Initially of all…I want to say that I had a Fantastic Awesome Fantastic time in Thailand. The weekend was crammed with a great deal of comforting, fantastic pool and therapeutic massage time as properly as some extra adventurous and fascinating stories. In advance of I inform some of these stories, even so, know that I am back again in Hong Kong harmless and seem….every little thing turned out just great! 😊

The vacation down there was pretty enjoyable and uneventful. We received picked up from the airport by Khun (Mr.) Sexith….also regarded as “Khun Sexyyyyyy!” He has been Marcia’s driver for lots of years, so his name is not intended to be in a creepy way. Properly, he was really pleasant…and to entertain two youthful american ladies on the way down he set in some DVDs of audio


Enjoying our food…

videos. The DVD was labeled Best of Gals artists…volume 15. It involved videos from madonna, alicia keys, beyonce, woman gaga, and so on. It also provided some really extremely lousy songs and videos. Things that I do not truly consider was popular in the US…or I just in no way noticed it. Unnecessary to say, it was a pretty awesome way to start off out our weekend vacation.

We arrived at Marcia’s rental in Hua Hin (about 2 hrs from Bangkok) at close to midnight. We basically just went to sleep. The up coming morning- Friday early morning, like fantastic very little american tourists, we woke up at 8am to get the day started. Properly, as it turned out…we have been the only ones with that notion. And we would be for mainly the entire journey. It is still wet time in Thailand (much more on that later) so we generally experienced all the things to ourselves!

We started out off the journey with hour extensive massages for about $5.00 (USD) woo! We had some yummy curry and made our way to the pool. The rest of that day involved laying by the pool, receiving a pedicure, a lot more pool, having, showering, and heading into the town nearby. We went to the night industry


(a big merchandise sector at evening) and bought some enjoyment goods, and then headed to this very well recognised Italian restaurant. I know, Italian in Thailand? But I was instructed we had to go there! It was tasty. When it was time to go house….we didn’t actually sense like waiting around for 30 minutes for our shuttle back. Moreover, we were not 100% positive they had been coming. It was 10:00pm and some pleasant young Thai gentleman ended up hoping to promote us Taxi rides on the again of their mopeds. Very well, in an exertion to “live a tiny” we made a decision to try out it. It was about a 35 moment journey on the back of a moped. For the very first 10-15 minutes it was so wonderful. Refreshing air in your face, a very little risk, stunning night time time. But then it just got a minimal awkward to sit there. It was nevertheless unquestionably really worth the vacation.

The subsequent working day we were being identified to go to the Elephant Village and journey elephants. When we woke up, nevertheless, it was raining and the sky was very darkish. The city is about 20 minutes absent, so we made a decision to test anyway. (“Who is aware of if it will be raining


our favourite massage hut

there?”) So we went! On our way…..we detect that the other side of the highway is flooded with about 8 inches to a foot of h2o. Throughout the complete road. At this issue while we were virtually there. We arrived at Elephant village (safely, whew!) and shock, shock we are the only holidaymakers there. It is just sprinkling at this stage. They notify us, no challenge, they have an umbrella….yes, we can go out and trip the elephant. Perfectly we get on and have our image taken, and about 2 minutes immediately after this it commences to pour rain. The pouring rain lasted the total hour of our elephant journey. Not only was it pouring rain, but it was thundering. We ended up on an elephant, in the center of the Thai “jungle” keeping an umbrella in a thunderstorm. I prayed a lot for that hour!

We produced it safely and securely back…..and just as we bought off, the sunshine arrived out. We have been absolutely soaked and chilly, but the encounter was surely really worth it…even in the tropical thunderstorm. The rest of the working day was used with more pool…(solar for a number of several hours!), massages, food, and a further night time time vacation into city.


Pana’s bar/cafe

I consider that is about all I will share from our trip. We had a excellent couple of days. I possibly have a couple a lot more tales, but I feel I have stuffed up enough of this entry.

I will also say that I am thankful that in the US we have rules and recommendations about highway construction and peak, and so forth. On our way back again to Bangkok, immediately after 2 days of major rain…..we have been driving by means of h2o most likely nearly a foot deep. It truly is like those people warnings you see on the information….really don’t drive in this! Nicely, which is what we have been driving by for sections of our vacation. I was Really glad to make it “house” to Hong Kong previous night!

If you want to know anything at all else about my vacation just send me a information!

Take pleasure in the images and videos! Love you all!
