TRAVEL: Far, Far East

For years we have been wanting to go to Thailand.  All our really big vacations up until this point have been to European locales – trips to beautiful cities where you walk and walk until your feet feel like they are going to fall off.  You know the kind of vacations I am talking about – the ones where you feel you need a vacation to recover from your vacation.  Don’t get me wrong – I love exploring and seeing all that a city has to offer, but sometimes I just want to plop down on a beach and do nothing more than bicep curl fancy cocktails while I admire the ocean view.  That’s usually where I lose Jared – he’s much more the adventurer of our duo.  The thought of spending days laying on a beach is okay for a day or two until he’s itching to see/do/feel and experience, whereas I, being the lazy person that I am, could easily spend days lounging around in the sun catching up on my kindle backlog.  Needless to say, this trip became a bit of a negotiation (I’ll give you 3 beach days if you’ll spend one day hiking to a hidden pool) but in the end I think we arrived at a nice balance.  A little bit city, a little bit relaxation, and a whole lotta heat.  It would be impossible to cram it all into a single post, so we’ll be breaking it down into a few posts over the next couple of weeks.  While we work through the million plus one photos we took, we’ll leave you with these gems and teasers:
