I know its been almost a month since my last post. I've had a lot going on. Someday readers I will tell you about it. But not today.

Today you can enjoy these pictures from Thailand! It was the most amazing place I have ever been. I would LOVE to go back there for a year or two and live. I loved everything about it; from the food to the people to the heat and humidity it was all such a great experience. I loved riding the elephants and hiking through the jungles and seeing the humble dwellings of the people. I only got to see monkeys once though :( :( And only from a boat for like 5 minutes. It was extremely disappointing.  But otherwise everything was awesome. We went to Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Phuket.

What I missed about America:

  • Cold water (especially in Chiang Mai in the jungle)
  • Being able to drink from the tap
What I loved about Thailand:
  • Our whole family ate dinner and bought drinks for about $6.
  • The food was so flavorful and so fresh!
  • The people were happy and friendly
  • The country was beautiful
  • Life was so much simpler
  • And a thousand other things

Breakfast on the plane....weird, right?
Um this sticker was on the dvd player in our taxi cab
The cutest little puppy! I wanted to pick him up and love him.
Church! We found an English ward. It was an international ward so there was people from all over the world like Pakistan, India, Thailand, America, Canada, etc.
My new favorite food. Mango Sticky Rice. YUM!
So some of the toilets you had to stand on and squat. It was interesting.
The actual cutest puppy ever! His name was Pumpkin. He was our tour guide's dog in Chiang Mai. I loved him.
The skinniest little rooster I have ever seen.
Water buffalo in the fields
Not a marijuana leaf :( I thought for sure it was when I picked it.
Long, hot day of hiking. We were tired!
Cooking our dinner with fresh everything straight from the gardens that day.

TONS of pictures. It was hard to narrow down which pictures and I obviously didn't do a very good job. But there you have it. If you ever get the chance to travel to Thailand I would highly recommend it.

Till next post! :) 


  1. What an exciting experience. Next time you go I'm in. Looks and sounds wonderful. Love you dear! Hope to see you in July. Aunt Karen

  2. We are going to Thailand in 2015...loved your pictures, but could you tell me about the place you stayed where the woman was cooking for you in the hut. That looked amazing! Maybe just post it as a comment here?

  3. Hey Susan, we used a tour guide we found on Trip Advisor. His name was Samart. He is the one that was cooking dinner with us and we stayed in his eco-lodges. He was an amazing guide and the huts were so much fun. I think the name of his company is Spicy Villa Eco-lodges or something like that.


Thanks for your comments! I love them all, it makes me feel so loved :) Feel free to comment as much as you want :D

Sorry about the capatcha thing, I was getting so many nasty spam comments so I had to put it on. I hate them too!
