This, was an amazing day. We were nearing the end of our two week trip to Cambodia and Thailand, at our last Thai beach destination before heading to Bangkok and then home. We had spent the previous 3 hours on a boat getting ferried from Koh Pi Pi island to Railay Beach in Krabi. The ferry ride alone was spectacular...the turquoise blue sea streched out as far as the eye reached, dotted with craggily formations and clusters of islands. This is what you see in the movies...and I sat like a child for 3 straight hours soaking it all in. Legs hanging off the side of the top deck, face resting on the railing, and a huge grin plastered to my face.
The time: 9am.
The temperature: a sweaty 90°.
The mood: hungover, hungry and excited for this part of the trip we've been looking forward to but sad it's our last day in Chiang Mai.
Hence Christian getting a bit randy with the cleaver he is handed by our instructor. There were a lot of emotions swirling around that morning. We had been out a bit late with some new friends the night before and the Tuk Tuk for class arrived at our hotel bright and early at 7:30am. Of course we were the first people to be picked up so we had the joy of jostling around the back of the oppressively hot Tuk Tuk for the next 45 minutes while slowly meeting those who would be our fellow classmates for the next 4 hours.

And of course, as always, I’ll caveat that until I get my own TV Show (anyone? anyone?) my videos are definitely amateur but for me it’s really all about sharing the experience with you not creating a perfect video. I hope you enjoy it!
Hi there! It’s been a while, but I am officially back in the US, over my severe jet lag, and able to update the site! I can’t begin to explain how amazing Thailand and Cambodia were, but I will have a few dedicated posts to that very topic over the next week. Stay tuned for a video of me exploring Cambodian exotic fruits and another of me enjoying my very first cricket in Thailand! I’ll also post all of our food-related pictures from the trip and share some of the recipes we got after our Thai cooking class (which produced very authentic and delicious Thai food!).
