Adventures in an Adventure Park

I have to be honest. I've somewhat lost interest in blogging. I'm not a natural writer, nor do I enjoy it particularly. Besides, lately I've been more than filling my quota of it, helping Jason with his scholarship and bursary application letters for Law School. Still, I know that, if for no other purpose than to document our travel memories for years to come, to come back and read about our adventures in fifty years when we're old and have nothing better to do, then I should do it. With my first Master's and AQ courses starting up in a few weeks, I know I'll have my hands full. So it's now or never. Here's my first attempt at attacking the backlog of posts Jason and I are faced with due to our excessive procrastination. Let me take you back to a warmer than average mid-February Saturday...

Just keep skiing!

I'm slightly excited to be blogging about our February 25-26th weekend ski trip to Korea's Yong Pyong Resort, for two reasons:

Tantalizing Thailand: Part deux

When the sun rose the next morning, we were in a completely different part of the country.  Outside our cabin window, fields and trees replaced the urban jungle that had been Bangkok, the hustle and bustle replaced with serene picturesque countryside beauty.  It was promising and getting there was half the adventure!
Just arriving near the water... this is what we are greeted with...

Tantalizing Thailand! Where beauty meets gastronomy and adventure!

Forgive me readers for I have procrastinated.  It's been over two months since my last blog rendition.  In my defense, I have been pretty busy with the new school year and getting back to the grind (although it's hardly a grind at all).  But I confess that in my free time, I haven't had the blog much in mind.  Instead, I've been reading, endlessly surfing the web for travel deals, and working out.  (Yes, I finally decided to start getting back in shape through "Insanity"... literally) But now that I've accepted that I've let you and myself down, I will try and get back on the wagon and catch up the last couple of months of our lives.  We've been pretty active, doing a lot of things, seeing a lot of places and enjoying every minute of it!  So here is the final installment of our Winter vacation trip:  Thailand!  Enjoy!

It was just past noon when we set foot aground on Thai soil for the first time.  After an unusually long wait to get past immigration, we hopped on a train headed toward the famous backpacker/tourist spot, Khao San Road.  Since the train doesn't reach our destination, we hired a Tuk Tuk (a mini taxi) to take us the rest of the way.  As we weaved through the busy streets of Bangkok at incredible speeds, the wind cooling us from the scorching heat, we felt alive and excited.
