Welcome to the Jungle … on Ko Tao in Thailand

20131124-075932.jpg

Hi from the jungle! Where it is very hot. I’m not sure I’ve ever felt so relaxed in my entire life.

20131124-080732.jpg

By the time you read this I will be getting a massage at the spa on this beach.

This is where I had breakfast.

It was delicious. I have lost a few LBs because I’m not eating that much. A vacation like this is the perfect pre-holiday detox!

Currently hiding away in my mosquito net bed where’s safe from mozzies. They are crazy! It rained all night and now they are hungry. Apparently they love me.

Hope you are having a great day!

If You Take The Ferry to Ko Tao, Sit on the Upper Deck

20131124-074352.jpg

 Yesterday we took the ferry to Ko Tao from Ko Samui. So many people were throwing up and feeling sick. It was pretty disgusting. I went to the top level and had a great time with the sun on my face and wind in my hair. You have to pass through hell to get to heaven apparently.

20131124-074421.jpg

It was raining when we got to the pier. I loved the ferry ride and did not feel sick at all.  Having a GoPro is really awesome. You can expect more vids from my going forward.

Arrived at the island around 4:30pm to be greeted by more rain.

We are staying at Charm Churee Vila, a boutique resort & spa. It’s beautiful!

Had a fairly early night after dinner and couple cocktails last night. This is Jenni & Luke from Contiki. The entire team travelling with us are so awesome. If you are ever looking for a really cool travel job, you’ll surely find one there.

I want to go on more Contiki tours. We are doing all kinds of things the regular groups do in Thailand. I really want to discover Italy, France, and Africa with Contiki,

This BBQ meal by the beach was absolutely amazing.

20131124-075018.jpg

Had an amazing sleep. It doesn’t get much better than this!

Make the post of each day my friends, the world is yours to discover!

I made cameos in some serious YouTuber’s vids guys.

Selects from our Thailand trip, Day 2! We went to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, and then got on a plane to Chiang Mai where we saw a ladyboy cabaret. Then, as tradition would have it, we got soaked. Follow #ContikiThai for more updates.

Maesa Elephant Camp in Chiang Mai

20131122-114258.jpg

Yesterday we visited ปางช้างแม่สา aka Maesa Elephant Camp in Chiang Mai. There are over 75 elephants there and they have a pretty good life! They are retired logging elephants and aren’t able to go back into the wild once they’ve worked. They are treated very well and do activities like soccer, basketball, and painting.

Lauren and I rode Bajan, a 61 year old elephant. He was massive, bigger than the other ones! It was so much fun.

We rode through the mountain jungle for about an hour. The camp is about 45 minutes from downtown Chaing Mai.

Absolutely amazing experience. Today we are flying to Koh Samui.

With love,

CASIE

You Are the Engine: Riding Bikes in Chiang Mai

20131121-114537.jpg

Started the day with a bike ride around Chiang Mai. We cruised all over he place through streets, into the forrest, jungle style, rice fields, visited a hospital, and more.  It was super fun. You know how much I love riding bikes.

SPA-mazing! Shangri-La Chiang Mai

20131120-170117.jpg

Started the day at a temple where I was blessed by monk.

We had free time to do whatever we like after that so I took the opportunity to treat myself. I spent the afternoon in the spa at the Shangri-La and it was fantastic! Had the BEST massage of my life. (It was my 6th spa of the trip too btw!)

Check it out!

So beautiful eh? It was a fantastic experience! Stopped by an art gallery before going back to the hotel.

I am in love with Thailand. I’m here till the 28th and each day is full of adventure.

Currently en route to a Thai cooking class with the groceries we just picked up! Make sure you are following me on Twitter and Instagram for the play by play!

OMG HI! This is some of what I have was doing while you were sleeping.  It’s fun being in the future!

I’ve been using my GoPro and the APP is AWESOME! Photos from my Canon will be added later. Right now I’m short on time so these are all from mobile. Sitting in the BKK Airport lounge before flying to Chiang Mai.

20131119-150442.jpg

We started the day at the floating markets about an hour outside Bangkok.

Ryker was amazing at bargaining with this lady from our boat. It lasted about 15 minutes and he got a wooden wine holder.  The boats were super rocky and we spent lots of time screaming and laughing.

20131119-150735.jpg

This goes out to Britney the Queen! I was not scared and actually love snakes. True fact!
