I'm feeling Krabi!

We just got home from a 5-day vacation in to Krabi, Thailand. We didn't know what to expect when we booked the tickets. All we knew was 1) Thailand is only a 1.5 hour plane flight away from Singapore, 2) Vacations to Thailand are cheap, and 3) Thai food is good. We were happily surprised to find that in addition to those three things, Thailand also boasts some of the friendliest (albeit, not very proficient in English) customer service around, the absolute cheapest massages you can find anywhere ($3USD for 1 hour!), amazing weather, and some of the most beautiful coastal scenery you can find in the world. Here are a few highlights from our trip.

Elephant Trekking in the jungles of Thailand
(How many of you can say you have heard an elephant burp?
Imagine a 30-second long, rumbling noise that feels like a mini-earthquake!)

Dude, that picture of the elephant is hilarious and amazing -- I can't believe you guys got to ride on top of one!

Double dude, those pictures of the beaches are GORGEOUS. The girl next to me in class even noticed and went, "Whoa," under her breath. :)

It makes it less painful missing you when I see the opportunities you have.

Those pictures are glorious! I hope Caleb will have glimmers of memories of riding on that elephant! Can't do that in Mo-town...
