It was the final day of a 9-day adventure tour in Thailand with REI Adventures. We spent the morning doing a cooking class. We had fun celebrating our time together, and I felt joy. It was also my 39th birthday. I was thrilled to celebrate with it in Thailand.
We biked through the rice fields in Thailand and stopped at a cave to explore. The cave was extremely hot and humid.
First, we biked through rice fields and then we went kayaking in northern Thailand when I noticed it was getting harder to paddle. Then we noticed that our kayak was filled with water. I knew we were going to tip.
While hiking on a group tour, I had a few thoughtful conversations with other members. It’s important to be able to talk about these things. We hiked, climbed a sticky waterfall, and got crazy Thai massages.
Our group with REI Adventures hiked through the jungles in Northern Thailand until we reached our next homestay. I slept on a balcony and enjoyed the sunrise.
Our group tour hiked through the jungles in the northern Thailand with some incredible views! Then we stayed at a local family’s house. It was definitely some rough conditions. Sleeping in the same room with 15 people, on a thin mattress, and roasters crowing made it a restless night.
On the first day of the REI Adventures tour in Thailand, we visited a temple and night market. By day two, we were zip lining and hiking. I was terrified of the conditions while zip lining and found out that two months later, a Canadian man fell to his death on those lines.
