The Real Reason I Went to Thailand...

ok, really! elephants!

My second day, I relived a childhood experience (which might not have happened...a 3-year-old's memory is shoddy at best) and booked a jungle trek. With an elephant! Exciting!

When we pulled up (there was a couple doing it as well), the size of the elephants alone was enough to make me gasp. No, really. I gasped. Then, once you get over that these things could crush you with one fell swoop, you start to realize how incredibly beautiful they are. I really can't describe it with words, so the rest of this two-part blog will be pictures. See for yourself.

It was amazing, something I won't ever forget.

The rest of my island stay was spent hanging out with people I met, Chea May and Canaan from Germany and Inbar from Israel. The island is so beautiful and relaxed. I'm already starting to think about when I can go back. I left the day I flew back to Korea and saw some stuff on the way.

I love Thailand. I shall return.
