Jenifer has left the US and is traveling in S.E Asia, specifically Thailand, to study Kung Fu, volunteer in rural villages and to teach English in North Thailand. Follow my JenUwin Adventures blog for insight into my journey!

Thailand Island Adventures

I had a surprise week off since school ended in Si Racha on the 31st and I had my apartment until the 10th - so I packed up my backpack and booked a flight to Krabi where I would take a mini bus and ferry to the island of Ko Lanta (Ko in Thai means island). It was so nice to get fresh air!

Ko Lanta

I arrived in beautiful Ko Lanta in the late afternoon to a hostel called BuBu Fanta which had only one guest (me!). I found dinner and settled in for the night after arranging a scooter and a snorkeling day trip!

Day 1: scooter adventure around the island

Day 2: snorkel adventure to 4 nearby islands

Day 3: waterfall excursion

Day 4: adventure to the National Park

Krabi

Day 5: Temple and Tiger Cave Adventures

Day 7: Krabi

Back to Bangkok (BKK) for a few days transitioning before travels to Ko Chang. Meet up with a few new friends I met online, saw my friend Jessie from Si Racha and visited the Unicorn Cafe (which was closed so I’ll be returning later!)

Ko Chang

A beautiful island off the lower right “tail” of Thailand, connected to Cambodia, Ko Chang is quite a bit south in Thailand. Here I took another snorkel tour - a big event happened!: I got accidentally launched from a giant blown up plastic ‘pillow’ that I thought you laid on and rolled over upon (as that is how it was demonstrated to me) however, as I am lying there trying to slide off, I see from above the tour guide jumping into the air to land on the other side of the "‘pillow’ thus launching me into full body coins into the air until I landed face plant on the warm salty sea water. I was shocked! My “buck and change” frame does not subject itself to wildness of this nature! I lost my left contact and I had a big black and red spot in my vision in my right eye for the next few hours. I even got a bruise on my eyelid! Other than that, Ko Chang and my adventures there were pleasant, delightful and lovely. I walked upon a mangrove forest, visited waterfalls, found a super special temple in full regalia, and ate wonderful food.

 Eventually I made it back to Bangkok and took a train to begin my new job in Hua Hin at the DaVinci International School.  Stay tuned for my next post about my experience settling into Hua Hin and taking my first #visarun to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  Thanks for reading and know I am thinking good thoughts about all of you!
