Thailand Trip in Photos: My Favorite Shots From My 6 Weeks Exploring Thailand

Updated: Feb 25



Landing in Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport feels a lot like coming home. My heart swells with anticipation (after the 24-36 hours that I've spent on planes and in airports; that part is not fun) knowing that my next curry is only minutes or hours away, and that I have weeks ahead of me in such an incredible country. Knowing I trust the smells on the street more than Yelp to guide me to an authentic meal. Knowing that I'll soon reunite with some of the most graceful and intelligent animals on the planet, feel an elephant's rough skin if they let me pet their trunk again.



All elephant photos were taken at Elephant Nature Park, where the animal's well-being takes precedence over the visitor's preferences. Unethical animal tourism runs rampant in Southeast Asia, so it's very important to do your research before you go!


I've spent about 10 weeks in Thailand over the past few years, and I can't imagine the beauty ever getting old (let alone the people, the culture, the food...)! It's the answer to any question regarding a favorite of mine- meals, sunsets, memories, hikes, shopping, trips. I could talk for hours about white water rafting the Pai river through the foothills of the Himalayas, feeding elephants, what my favorite meals are and where you can find the bars with the best acoustic covers. But, as they say, pictures speak louder.







Bangkok, the most visited city in the world

HMU next time you're going to Thailand, maybe I'll join you! If not, enjoy a red curry for me❤️
