Even in the cities of Thailand, colors are vibrant. 😍

My πŸ’£πŸ΄ 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.

My unintentional πŸ‘―'ing pose with Buddha. πŸ“·: @adubeast

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 πŸ“·: @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.
