time warp

Saturday, March 1st, 2008

sorry guys, i’ve been having too much fun living life the past few days to get around to writing about it! oops! =) forgive me this little time warp, i’ve got tons of new pictures on the way and lots of experiences to share…

since kira, kimi, christy, lisa, and lisa’s mom joined us in bangkok, we’ve:

– taken an overnight train to bangkok (where we slept on bunk beds that reminded me of sleeping in the overhead bin of an airplane!)

– gotten two hour thai massages in our own private room at healthland (VIP style!)

– took a tour up to the northernmost part of thailand and across to burma/myanmar

– rode elephants (SO FUN!!!)

– hiked through waterfalls

– stayed overnight with a hilltribe group

– flew south to phuket and then by bus to ko surin island

– spent 3 days, 2 nights camped out on the beach

– snorkeled all day, being taken from site to site by longtail boat

– visited the moken people (also known as the “sea gypsies”)

– saw a monkey!

– drank snake whiskey (everyone swore “never again!”)

– stayed in our own little bungalow cabins in khuraburi

– ate, shopped, and laughed way more than should be legal

i’ve had the best times of my life in the last 10 days! will try to upload our pictures and share some more stories soon….
