Thailand: Day 7 Continued

I'm almost done with obsessing over my elephant adventures,
but I just had to post a few of my favorite clips from the day
before moving on to the rest of the trip :)

This was our first real interaction with our elephant for the day, and I was pretty scared with her pushy trunk all up in my space as she was sooo hungry, oopsies I only got half of the bananas/bamboo in her mouth!

AND, I laugh every.single.time I watch this clip as there is a huge difference in my "cleaning" and Gabe's.  He's a fierce swatter with that branch - LOL!!!

Bathing Be-Joon, my fav part is when she genuinely scared me with her sweet talking and then rolled around and dived face first!

Gabe getting on like a champ, he thinks he is an elephant trainer :)

Graceful as I could be ...

Please entertain yourself and watch me fall, twice!

Getting bucked off as a couple :)


That night we were absolutely pooped, and we all we wanted was the street food from the same place we ate the night before.  When in doubt, go with what you LOVE!  And we just loved this Thai food.

and the $1 Leo beer

Top it off with a banana pancake and what we thought was a bottle of beer, which ended up being some real classy wine at that costly price of 90 CENTS from 7Eleven 

Hubs and I both wear full suits on a daily basis, and we had heard many suggestions from friends who visited Thailand that we had to take advantage of getting a tailored suit while we were there as it was a steal of a deal.  Before heading home that night ..... as it was like 10pm, we decided to pop our head into a tailor shop.  They had beautiful material, looked legit from what we saw, and the gentlemen was willing to do anything to get our business.  The crazier part was the fact that he said he could have a suit for both of us completed well within the 36 hours we had before catching a flight to the islands.  It seemed too good to be true, but hey why not we're on vacation ;)

Little did we know this was only the beginning of a long relationship!!

I'm seriously so jealous that you got to play with elephants! :)

What a genius idea to get tailored suits! Can't wait to see what they look like!

So, I've been wanting to plan an exotic vacay & I think I could just literally copy every single thing you're doing if we planned on Thailand. I love all the little details you are including. Keep em coming!! This seems like the best trip ever...

Kristin said...
