I am back to the cyber world after being away from it for 3 days while at the Krabi Homestay and I will admit it was kind of nice being disconnected from the world for a little bit….
The homestay was amazing!! Probably one of my favourite parts of the tour so far. Rong, the owner, is a funny man who always keeps the parties going. I cannot wait to come back to his home as well as his mom’s delicious cooking when I go back there for the Yogalife tour at the end of this month.
While at the homestay we went on an amazing kayaking trip in the ocean and through the mangrove trees (trees that grow from under the water) as well as saw a beautiful waterfall that we got to swim around in (picture below) after a little harder than expected tek through the jungle.
We also got to learn about how palm oil is made as well how they make rubber from the rubber trees which seemed easier than I expected.
After we finished what felt like a never ending bus ride for 16hours (we got caught in a traffic jam due to flooding for 2 hours) we made it to Kanchanaburi. Since we got here a little later than planned we went to the war museum and learned more about World War II and then went to a steak house for supper which turned into a karaoke bar at night. Everyone got up and sang a song whether they were good singers or not hehe. Next up ELEPHANTS tomorrow!! The moment I have been waiting for this whole trip. ☺
Hello from the gorgeous Krabi Life homestay
My name is Amber, some of you may have met me last December on the "Blissful Bali" tour, the "Vietnam Explorer" tour from November or even on the 3-week Thailand tour that happened this year over the holiday season, but if not I am a 27-year-old girl from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada who did not start travelling soon enough in my life so I am currently doing a 3-month adventure around southeast Asia trying to get my fill before I get "too old" although you never too old to travel or even start travelling.
I work in an office back home in a job that keeps me on my toes and has me using my brain in all sorts of ways all day long taking care of 4 needy guys with one of my best friends from college. I live on an acreage with my sister, 2 dogs and 2 cats. I am short with a what I have been told is either an annoying or adorable small voice. I also have the most amazing and supportive boyfriend ever waiting for me at home whom I cannot wait to get back to but Asia was calling my name ever since I got a small taste of it last year.
I just finished the 3 week Thailand tour that started in late December which was amazing! Before that tour I went to Phuket for 10 days and did yoga twice a day and visited all the beaches I could get my hands on while I was there. After the 3-week tour, I did a 2-week volunteer project with the elephants for 1 week in Surin, Thailand and then taught English to kids in Cambodia for a week, which was probably the most fulfilling thing I have done on my adventure so far. As of right now I am on the Yogalife tour with LBW, and once this tour is over I will be going to Siem Reap, Cambodia to stay at the Tipsy Turtle hostel for 1 week before I finally get home and reality again.
Thank you in advance for reading my blogs!!
