Phuket, Thailand.

Thailand was a destination on my list for a while now.

The clear blue water, the monkey island, and of course the food!

Possibly one of the most beautiful beach destinations I have been to. The culture is beautiful, the people are humble, and the Thai Tea is AUTHENTIC.

There is nothing like spending an entire day in a Speed Boat Island hoping, jumping into the shallow emerald green water, enjoying authentic Thai Food surrounded by good people and good vibes.

Valentine stole my heart <3

SAVE THE ELEPHANTS

The sanctuary specializes in rescuing injured and mistreated elephants

DO NOT RIDE THEM!!! </3

Do not do it for the gram, PLEASE

AVOID all elephant tourist activities such as riding and taking pictures with them.

They deserve to be happy. The Elephant Jungle Sanctuary allows you to experience something unique, and honestly it is such a humbling experience.
