Dear Followers,

Sunday our elephant trip was on the itinerary. We booked a tour at blue elephant, which gives you private tours, so you don’t end up in a tourist attraction. Pricewise, this was okay! Elephant camps are pricier overall so we think this is okay. Elephants were treated really well at this camp (thai elephant home), so we booked this tour.

The tour consisted of visiting a butterfly/orchid farm, visiting the long neck Karen hill tribe, white water rafting and elephant ride. The first two were not interesting at all. The butterfly/orchid farm was really small. The Karen hill tribe is just a made up tourist village where visitors are sort of forced to buy stuff.

So on to the real deal! White water rafting. This was just amazing. We LOVED it! If you’re into adventure you should definitely do this. When we finished the white water rafting we lunched at the camp. Here they served a really nice lunch, with fried chicken, pat thai, thai spaghetti and all kinds of veggies and fruits. During our lunch we had an amazing view of the river and the mountains.

Hereafter we went to the elephant camp. Where we had to change into mahout (elephant trainer) outfits. Really sexy! 😉

The elephants where somewhat bigger than what we expected! However Rafael wanted “Big boy” the largest of them all. We had a tour through the jungle with the elephant. Hereafter we headed to the river where we could wash them and play with the elephant, getting lifted by the trunk and getting elephant kisses. Soooo cute!

After washing them in the river, we headed back to the camp. We decided to go together on big boy!

Thank you,

Love,

Rafael & Aimée
