An Escape to Thailand

Sawadee Ka (hello) friends!

We returned from Thailand last weekend, however I’m still trying to get back into the groove of things–both at the office and at home. Our experiences in Thailand were unlike any other, and I’m grateful that we had the opportunity to explore such an interesting (and beautiful) place in the world.

Thailand was full of striking contrasts: at times it was completely chaotic and other times it was entirely serene. The southern islands were draped in lush tropical forests with hundreds thousands of palm trees, whereas the capital city gave way to a sprawling concrete jungle. Thailand had a little bit of everything and simply put, it was an incredible experience.

While I always love going on trips and exploring the world, coming home to our sweet pups, our loving family, our beautiful home, and our daily routine feels pretty good too. I guess life is all about a delicate balance.

So where have we been?

In total, we spent fifteen days on the lam ;), including:

  • Seven nights in Koh Samui
  • Four nights in Koh Tao
  • Two nights in Bangkok
  • and One final night in San Francisco

Thailand Adventure

As our 14th country and third continent, we couldn’t have asked for a better anniversary trip. Cody and I went scuba diving, hiking, boating, snorkeling, swimming, and more, and I can’t wait to share our adventures with you.

For now, here’s a little sneak peek of our time spent on those gorgeous southern Thai islands:

Koh Samui, Thailand

My absolute favorite resort. Stay tuned for all the details about this magical place.

      Hi Ledgardo,
      That is neat your daughter lives in Phuket. Thailand was such a neat country and I really enjoyed how diverse it was. I hope that next time we can head up to the Chiang Mai area to explore. I bet November will be the perfect time to go! I hear that it is slightly cooler during that month. Safe travels and thanks for stopping by 🙂

      I’ve looked into a few in the past but there haven’t been any that have really caught my attention, or seemed all that “worth” it (if that makes sense). Maybe I need to do some more searching… ? 🙂

        Hi Krystle! I have a travel club (that offers a lot in Asia) that you may be intrigued by! Not sure if this one will catch your attention, but it caught mine. I love reading your blog and I love your travels. I think you are doing what we are meant to do in life and for that I applaude you. The club just changes the possiblilities of saving you money and offering more trips then you could imagine. Just something to think about. 🙂
