Blogathon 44 -3:30

This is getting really, really hard. I am trying to go to my “happy place.”

For me, that place thinking about travel. I’ve been fortunate to have taken some fantastic trips to various places in the world. London, Korea, Morocco, Grand Cayman, New York, Las Vegas.

Our next major trip is slated to be to Thailand in February. We’re hoping to leave town during the Olympics (both to escape the mayhem, and because getting out of Raincouver for a spell in February is a really nice thing to do) and head to the country we’ve heard some great things about.

If you’re still up with me, have you been to Thailand? Any travel tips?

Or, what’s your happy place?

Or, if you’re still up with me and haven’t donated, what the heck are you waiting for?!?!?!?!

    Thailand is awesome. I really had a wonderful time there. Great food, prices as low or as high as you want to pay, and really friendly people. The best experience I had was a tour just north of Bangkok where we rode elephants, went rafting on the river Kwai, spent a day at these gorgeous waterfalls, and visited a very cool temple where the monks raised tigers and let guests pet and take pictures with them. I’ll show you the website if you like. Definitely the best part of my trip, although snorkelling at Ko Samui was great too.

    Are you and Neil scuba divers? Nicole went to Thailand for her honeymoon and they did a 4 day live-aboard dive trip. She said it’s the best diving she’s ever done.

    Ha! I just saw this post and was going to talk about the diving. Jen knows me well πŸ™‚
    So, ya, Michael and I went to Thailand for our honeymoon and, as well as a lot of other great things, spent 4 days diving. It was, quite possibly, the best 4 days of my life. If you don’t have your certification, you can get it there over a few days (and I wouldn’t think of it as wasted vacation days because it’s really quite fun), or you can do it within Vancouver. We went with Sea Dragon (http://www.seadragondivecenter.com/) and were completely thrilled with them. Food, accommodations, guiding, equipment, atmosphere and overall knowledge and regard for conservation and respect of sea life was awesome. There are other, cheaper, dive companies, but they tend to overcrowd their boats, give shitty food and questionable equipment, and lousy guiding.
    If you have any questions, about diving or other aspects of Thailand, I’d be glad to chat πŸ™‚ I also have the Lonely Planet book as well as a few others if you’d like to borrow them.
    I’m jealous! I want to go back!
