Hello from beautiful Koh Tao!

A little update from the tour so far!

We spent the first few nights in Bangkok and really got to know each other over cheap buckets at “Bucket Bar” on Khaosan Road, went to see the largest sleeping buddha in Thailand. While we were there I got a palm reading done which was so accurate that I am tempted to go back to the temple at the end of the tour and get another reading. It was only 500 baht so I highly suggest getting it if you are into that stuff.

After a long bus ride and a very comfortable ferry ride we arrived in Koh Tao on Christmas eve. We had a really fun first night at “Leo Bar on the Rock” which was complete with a really cool fire dancing show. For Christmas day we had a “beer Olympics” and went to a yummy Mexican place for supper. We are doing the “famous” Koh Tao pubcrawl this evening which I am really looking forward too. 😊

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!!
