Fab Photos Friday: Elephants

Donald Trump Jr holding the the tail of an elephant he killed this past week (yes, I know holding the tail is an African sign of respect) caused quite a ruckus online. For this Fab Photo Friday I thought I would share elephant photos from my safaris and from my volunteer experience in Thailand. Elephants are […]

The Best of 2014

The Best of 2014

The last few years have been, for me, at least, a perfect storm. Circumstances have conspired to create the most challenging years of my life.  So much so, that there have been times I have almost had to laugh at the continuing onslaught.  Although 2014 has been a year of challenge, there have been moments of […]

Fabulous Photo Friday: Thai Buddhism Iconography

Fabulous Photo Friday: Thai Buddhism Iconography

The images of Thai Buddhism will stay with me forever.  The Golden, intricate figures and images are somehow soothing, awe inspiring, and even sacred.  They are steeped in antiquity, history and worship.  Look at the peaceful faces of the Buddhas, and the sometimes fierce aspect of the protectors.  I do want to return to Thailand […]

MUST SEE: Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, Thailand

The Thai Floating Markets!  Long Tail Thai boats are loaded high with fruits and the smell of cooking fills the air.  I have never had fruits that tasted so rich, and I had my first try at Mango with Sticky Rice, topped with Coconut Milk.  It is delicious.  I don’t even like coconut, and I […]

How to Find Ethical Elephant Tourism in Thailand

How to Find Ethical Elephant Tourism in Thailand

Everyone who travels to Thailand wants to trek with the Asian elephants who are advertised for trekking, riding, and shows.  Elephants are highly revered in Thai and Buddhist traditions, and were used for warfare, much like horses in prior times.  Elephants, thankfully, are no longer used for the logging industry in Thailand, as the country […]

What to do in Bangkok: The Golden Buddha

What to do in Bangkok: The Golden Buddha

I could have spent months in Thailand and not seen it all, but what I did see will stay with me forever.  I spent the second half of my trip with my daughter, Alexandra, who always said she never wanted to go to Asia.  As it turned out, she was not ready to leave when […]

Bangkok: the City of Angels (and Ladyboys)

Bangkok: the City of Angels (and Ladyboys)

Bangkok is the City of Angels. Well, it is also known as Sin City, but hey, so is Los Angeles, right?  Bangkok needs several blogs to do it justice, but here’s a fact:  my daughter and I absolutely fell in love with it.  It was not at all what I expected.  What did I expect?  A smog […]
