Asia Trip 2012: Thailand

June 05, 2012

Woohoo, I'm finally back in Hong Kong and no longer held in the clutches of the Great Chinese Firewall. So frustrating not having access to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Blogger and even Google at times!! Yes, I am a slave to social networking.

Anyway, I'm still in Hong Kong for another day, but managed to put together some of my pictures from my time in Thailand. I went to visit Pattaya and Bangkok - the time I spent there definitely wasn't enough, so I can't wait to be back soon!

  10. Riding an elephant sounds like so much fun! The closest I have gotten to that experience is riding a camel.

    1. The texture was really smooth! It almost felt smooth like pudding, but really cold like ice cream! They apparently have something like it in Vegas.. if I find out where I will let you know! :)

    1. The elephant riding was fun! But so weird at first. I never knew elephants had such coarse hair! It's all over their bodies and soooo scratchy. We actually had to stand on the elephant in order to get on it.. I was so scared haha!

    want, then look through what’s available and make your email booking.
