JollyBod Family Travels to Thailand

After a few days in Beijing and checking out the Great Wall we took a connecting flight through Kunming, China and made our way to Chiang Mai, Thailand.  We were welcomed by some much needed clean air and the authenticity of a great little hotel (#BanThaiVillage) with its quaint and lush grounds and an amazing “welcome” drink.  The drink was a delicious red fruit drink but the language barrier left us wondering exactly what it was – sometime things are better left a mystery I guess – it was yummy though!  Over the next couple days we traveled by Tuk-Tuk around Chiang Mai to various markets and to see some of the city’s many Buddhist Temples which seemed to appear on every nearly street.  The Temples varied in age and size – some modern and some ancient.  One major highlight for us was visiting Elephant Nature Park where rescued elephants and other animals are cared for in the mountainous area north of Chiang Mai.  The elephants there were either harmed in public entertainment shows, logging operations or in the wild where they eventually found their way to #ElephantNaturePark.  That’s all for now… next we’re off to Cambodia.  Get out there and Go Happy with #JollyBod.
