Today I'm reminiscing about past adventures. In December 11'/January 12' Garth and I went to Thailand for our first overseas trip together. It was absolutely amazing, and we were perfect travel buddies. We flew into Bangkok first and spent a few days exploring the wonders of that city. We then took an overnight train to Chiang Mai, in the North. The train was.... quite an experience, but well worth the memories. We spent several days in Chiang Mai, including the New Year, and those moments are some of my favorite memories. We also rode elephants, explored temples and ate like kings.
From Chiang Mai we headed south to the beach city of Phuket. While this was a gorgeous location, we didn't get a great sense of culture here and spent most of our time on the beach or walking the little streets (save for a day trip to Koh Phi Phi island). We had such an amazing time throughout the entire trip, and after that point made so many plans to see the world together! China, Argentina, really any place. But, time has a way of flying by, and before you know it, years have passed... Needless to say, Garth and I have not been on an overseas adventure since Thailand.
That is all going to change in just about 6 weeks. We're headed on another adventure and couldn't be more excited! I can't wait to explore together. In the meantime, I'm looking back on old photos and thinking about how amazing it is to experience another culture.
