𝐇𝐚𝐩𝐩𝐲 𝐓𝐡𝐮𝐫𝐬𝐝𝐚𝐲, 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲𝐨𝐧𝐞! Let’s have some fun.... Ask me any “would you rather” question and I’ll give you my best shot at an answer! But, more than that, I want to see you guys answer each other’s questions too! Serious, funny, bizarre—there are no limits, just keep it clean, keep it respectful, and have fun!
Have you ever seen pics from Monkey Beach? It looks like all fun and games, but the reality is just a liiiittle bit different!
I’ve been twice, and the boat captains that were driving the longboats weren’t thrilled about it either time🙃 they dock a good way away from the beach so the monkeys can’t climb aboard (since these guys are used to swimming around here!) and give you a ton of warnings- don’t feed the monkeys, don’t get close to the monkeys, don’t make eye contact with the monkeys, and don’t stay too long!
These local captains have seen and heard SO many horror stories about monkey attacks, and won’t hesitate to tell you about how many people have to go to the hospital to get a rabies shot after getting bit! Or at least, the ones I’ve had are this way- there are also captains that (illegally!) encourage you to feed the monkeys to get the best picture. It’s scary to watch when you’re worrying about what could happen to the unsuspecting tourist!
This pic was from my first time there, where I was SO careful not to provoke any animals! It’s hard to tell here, but I sat down pretty far away so I could just get a photo with them in the background. I’m smiling, I’m chill, and then all of a sudden I feel a massive YANK on my hair! I froze as I saw a second monkey come around me to try to pull the first little guy off of my head and thought for sure I was in trouble! These guys were wrestling and my head had just become the mat😭
I just stayed as still as possible and waited for the monkeys to move on, trying to stay calm🙈 I kept my cool but I was SO scared that I’d have to head to a hospital once they were done with me! Luckily, they got bored pretty quickly and jumped off, and I got this photo to show for it. My second time there I made sure I wasn’t within 20 feet of a monkey- as much as I love this picture, I didn’t want a repeat!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you ever been to Monkey Beach, or any temple in SE Asia that has a bunch of monkeys around? I also almost had a room key stolen from my backpack at Tiger Cave Temple! An older woman braver than I stole it back out of his grabby little hands🐒 do you have any stories of wild animal encounters?
Koh Tao 🌴🌊 Probably one of the most beautiful and fun islands in the world. It is so beautiful and has so much to do and see, but not to the point where it's overwhelming. We were so happy we could get anywhere on the island within 15 minutes on a scooter, and the beaches off the main strip were so quiet, peaceful, and secluded.
We did the infamous Koh Tao Pub Crawl soon after arriving and met lovely friends from around the globe 🌍 I'd be lying if I didn't say that seeing the pups I met when I was in Koh Tao two years ago was the highlight of my night 🐕
Our favorite place to eat quickly became "Mama's" which was a restaurant in a little shack close by our hostel. The food was so delicious - the best we had on the entire island. Sometimes the best spots are where you would least expect them, so never overlook somewhere that might not look the most pretty or "insta-worthy." We explored on a scooter with friends, hiked to this gorgeous viewpoint and were amazed at the colourful water and jungle below us. We watched the sun set on the beach every night before dinner, admiring the changing of the colours from orange to pink to purple 🌅
Unfortunately, I got quite sick after that and our plans to watch the sun rise from a viewpoint of the island were no longer realistic 😔 We made the best of the next day after I got a few more hours of sleep and visited Tanote Bay, just the two of us, and layed in the sun and refreshed in the ocean while chatting about the rest of our time in Thailand and how much we love Koh Tao 💙 I wanted to soak up every last second of beach and ocean I could before we headed to Bangkok the following morning...

The circle is two dimensional and is a symbol of oneness. The ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter is called Pi. Pi is an irrational number and never ends nor does it ever repeat. It is infinite.

Bangkok ve Phuket’te ulaşımımı sıklıkla @grabth uygulamasıyla çağırdığım değişik sınıflarda araçlarla (Land Cruiser da dahil) güven içerisinde gerçekleştirdim. Gezdirme, aşırı ücret isteme, saygısızlık vb en ufak sorun yaşamadım. Zaten uygulama size gitmek istediğiniz adres için kesin rakamı aracı çağırmadan önce söylüyor; araç bilgisi, aracın mevcut konumu vb bilgileri de sürekli izleyebiliyorsunuz. Buna sürücü de dahil. Çıkışta sürücüyü puanlayabiliyorsunuz. Son derece yardımseverdi bütün sürücüler. İngilizce bilmeyen sürücülerin sesli çeviri programları aracılığıyla sohbet etmesi çok etkileyiciydi. Halk olarak zaten teknolojiye fazlasıyla uyum sağlamışlar.

The verdency of Hala-Bala Wildlife Sanctuary in the southernmost province of Narathiwat creates a perpetual mist all year round. This is the natural abode of many wild animals, and a treasure of botanical gems. For humans, we can appreciate, trek carefully and observe nature as it is. Untainted, undisturbed, and truly magnificent.
Going for a stroll along the beach 😝🚶🏻♀️
Can’t believe a week has already passed on this trip! I’ll be honest, other than these beach photos and maybe one flow in Kuala Lumpur, I haven’t done much real yoga. We have been walking around a lot and that’s pretty much all my body can handle right now. The next few days will be a little slower, so I’m hoping to slow down, meditate and get moving on my mat again. How is your yoga practice when travelling? Is it non existent or the same as at home?

Oftentimes, the most magnificent views in Thailand reflect people’s devotion for something deeper and truer than the eye could see. Perched high and precipitously here is the one-of-a-kind Wat Chalerm Phrakiat about an hour (60 km) north of Lampang. Imagine how a mind could achieve such a feat!
Silver, silver, and … silver everywhere. This is Wat Sri Suphan in Chiang Mai - an ancient sacred ground that got a facelift with all the silver ornaments being made into the centrepieces reflecting the nearby silversmith community.
Cheers to @doiforicecream for this lovely shot!
Arrived to Koh Yao Noi, one of the last islands in Thailand that barely has any tourists on it! Only 4500 locals live here and they just opened their first mainstream store, a 711 just last year 🙊 It’s been amazing learning about all the different kinds of plants and how locals use them to get by on the island.
I’m staying @eaglesnestkohyaonoi - a gorgeous private villa overlooking the Phang Nga bay and all the islands. Here is a shot from the beautiful infinity pool on the property 😍🥰

Always amazing how nature manages to create such a stunner. Here is an alluring scene from Wang Sila Lang, touted as Nan’s own Grand Canyon. This ancient pathway of waters carries particular formations thanks to centuries of erosions. Best time to be there is usually when water is low at end of year or summer months.
