It was surreal to arrive in Bangkok just in time for their airport tree lighting ceremony.
We wandered by en route to our flight to Phuket and voila!
The airport was a little bit confusing, but we got along okay.
We arrived in Phuket in the dead of night and made our way directly to the Baipho Lifestyle, a sweet little guesthouse in Patong Beach. After two days of flying, we had nothing left - we forfieted exploration and went right to sleep.
In the morning, we explored as far as our breakfast table...
...where I hoped to dive into something exotic, but found instead eggs and toast. Which suited Ben just fine.
Within minutes of clearing our plates we were whisked away for our first real adventure in Thailand- three days at Elephant Hills!
The two hour drive took us through beautiful Kao Suk National Park.
Once there, our driver deposited us in a boat on a river!
Oooh, pretty! Now paddle!
