Even in the cities of Thailand, colors are vibrant. 😍
My 💣🐴 photography skills though.
When in Bangkok, Thailand check out a Wat ("Temple& #34; in Thai). Don't go to just look at the beautiful statues & architecture... if you don't know the actual history or Buddhism, get yourself a tour guide. They will explain the meaning of Buddhism & all the little details about why Buddha's hair has curls, why Buddha is skinny, the different poses, why the buildings have horns & the roof has a snake skin pattern, etc. Trip Advisor will tell you otherwise, but our tour guide gave us the knowledge to leave the Wat & bring what we learned back home. After gaining the knowledge, I had a sense of enlightenment. Knowledge is power. #WatPho #Bangkok #RecliningBuddha
Bacon & Garlic Pasta with a poached egg.... 😍 if we lived here in Bangkok, we'd eat here EVERY. DAY.
48hr buttermilk marinated, slow roasted fried chicken. Even their French fries are a 48hr process to perfection. Can we have a ROAST in San Diego?!
Lanta Bowl - Passion fruit & Mango blended & topped w/ bananas, apples, Asian pear, dragon fruit (my fave), granola, craisins, grapes & chia seeds sprinkled on top!
Today we end our island part of the trip & head to the city. I'm going to miss all the vibrant, naturally saturated colors from the sky, to the sea, to the sand & even the souvenir stores along the boardwalk. Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lanta, Krabi... we're coming back for you.
This is what 1260 steps looks like vertically. The hike up the temple was quite a challenge. I was feeling a sense of regret after our second flight of steep stairs but @adubeast helped push me through it. When we got to the top, the view was definitely rewarding. We hung out with Buddha for a good ol' 30 minutes before we headed down. By the time we reached ground zero, my shins & calves were done! Great experience & very happy we made it! When in Krabi, you must visit Tiger Cave Temple. P.S. don't be an idiot & wear flip flops like I did. My big toe-pointer toe cleavage is feeling a little raw. 😰
Land ahoy! We wanted a private long tail boat so we got one. Haha 📷: @adubeast
Koh Lanta, you've been great to us. Took us 9 hours of motorbiking to get around the whole island along with pit stops on the way. The sunburns & few mosquito bites are all well worth it. On to our next stop, Railay Bay! We're ready to chill with the Rastafarian locals, eat even more dragonfruit & wash it all down with our daily dose mango & coconut juice! #laramaedub #laramaedubadventures #socrispy #charredchicken #bbqpork
It's hard to pick out a favorite beach out of all that we've encountered so far. I must say that I've never seen beaches where the water is so blue, so clear & warm while the sands are white w/ abundance of sea shells.... I don't know, guys.... I think I'm becoming a mermaid or the biggest bum on the beaches & I'm never coming home.
