The other day we were feeling a bit goofy, and might we add, curious. So we went into our local 7-Eleven and instead of walking past the prepackaged Thai snacks like we normally do, we decided to do a bit of a taste testing experiment. Why not try out some typical, but none-the-less, unusual Thai snacks? Here’s to being guinea pigs!
The elephant is a revered creature in Thailand. So much so it’s the national symbol. But in many places, these beautiful creatures are forced to do circus tricks, street beg, and give rides to people despite their well-being. So we couldn’t have been happier when we stumbled across the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary in Chiang Mai, which promotes responsible tourism and the ethical treatment of elephants. Here you can feed them, give them a mud bath, and wash the elephants – with no elephant riding!
A day tour to the sleepy town of Kanchanaburi, Thailand was more than just a touristy trip for us and Chris’s visiting parents and grandparents. We took a step into the past and spent a day paying remembrance to the horrific history of the Death Railway.
We remember the first time receiving our Thai electric bill and hadn’t a clue where to pay it or when it was due. We figure there are many first timers who need a little guidance, so we’ve dedicated this post to breaking down the anatomy of a Thai electric bill and showing you where and how to pay for it.
In my quest to learn Thai as a second language, Chris and I both agreed that it was a good idea to be able to hold simple conversations within our first year living in Thailand. Well, fast forward to a year and a half and I can barely do just that. It’s embarrassing to think that with all the time and effort I’ve put into this endeavor, a three-year old is still better at talking than I am!
