Looking back. Part 3

THAILAND | Friday, 7 July 2017 | Views [461]

Bangkok: found 2 guys on the plane that were heading into the city together as well so we all navigated the train system together. I walked to my hostel which was an AWESOME place and the air conditioning was spectacular-something I will never take for granted again. Also there was toilet paper which is fun. Got rice in a pineapple and planned my day before crashing in bed

7 hours later....walked 3 miles to the grand palace and did tons of touristy things walking around temples and eating pad Thai, got back After bargaining my way to a new outfit and flip flops on KhoSan Rd and showered off the damage the hot weather had done. Met a guy who told me about an app called maps.me that you can use offline instead of always downloading google maps which rocked my world-still using it everyday

back to the airport for Chiangmai (northern Thailand) but more importantly for Tyler. I think I was more nervous to see him than the first time we went out cause it had been quite a bit of time, but also way too excited and I'm one of those girlfriends that gets super psyched about everything and love hugs and romance and lovey things. and it absolutely doesn't make me any less of an aspiring badass (maybe after I do an Ironman Ill graduate to a complete badass) ANYWAY got to Chiangmai, reunited with the bf and then obviously started planning all the fun things for the weekend

Spent the day with elephants-fed them, bathed them and gave them a mud bath, at some point one of the elephants started pooping in the water so the guide caught the big blocks of poop and tossed them out of the water....just thought you should know

visited a gorgeous temple with tons of steps (Tyler had s tough time with that one ;) just kidding that may have been me) and saw a local village and swam in this giant canyon and visited temples all around the city and climbed a waterfall that had an effect where the rocks were super sticky so you could scramble right through the water. Went to a jazz bar and this awesome restaurant with couches to sit on. It was an epic weekend and couldn't think of anyone else id want to be there with me.
