Ao nang Pt.2 - Monkey and Elephant Whispering.

Day Three in Ao nang was our favorite day. Ever. We started out early on a kayaking trip through a mangrove forest.


Being a geography nerd major, I was really excited to see the mangroves. They are so rare and rapidly being destroyed, so I'll probably never see them again!


 Our route took us through the mangroves to a beautiful lagoon. There were spaces that were so tight you could only fit one kayak at a time. Some parts you had to lie down to avoid being clotheslined by branches!

We went in a rather large group and met some really great people. An older couple from France were in Thailand for the past MONTH and had another week here. They spend they're lives traveling together and scuba diving wherever they can. Living the dream.

At one point we saw a monkey sitting in the mangroves watching the boats pass. I made a joke that it looked like one of the animals on Splash Mountain that is warning you before you go over the falls.

Turns out he was the warning monkey, because after him there were monkeys everywhere! One jumped on our boat!

 He stole Torrey's water bottle, bit a hole in it and drank all of it! Then he just took a ride in our boat for a bit.

Just chillin with his new tourist bud.
After Torrey said goodbye to his new monkey friend, I made a new friend too.

Excited face.

 We. Rode. Elephants.They are the cutest and they're big leather ears slap your legs when they walk. And I love them.

Our last day in Ao Nang was filled with more relaxing and beach loving. We got massages every day, rented a motorcycle to drive down to Krabi, drank from coconuts, and ate lots (and lots) of noodles. But let's be honest you stopped listening after the elephants ;)

Note to Future Children: Mom and Dad need you to surprise them with a 25th anniversary trip back here. Please and thank you.

PS. If you noticed the color of Torrey's skin was a vibrant shade of pink, then you'll know he got BURNT to a crisp. Like every part of his body that was in the sun. Poor thing could barely move by our last day here, and spent the rest of our trip leaving a trail of skin flakes behind. Like a good brown wife that has never been sunburnt in her life, I bought lots of aloe to rub on his pink shoulders every night. #whitehusbandproblems

Until next time!
