Today we had the chance to sleep in a little which was needed. Brooke is doing better but Ryan is still under the weather and at this point we need all the extra sleep we can get. It probably didn’t help that Ryan had a phone interview at 4:00 AM Thailand time. So he was extremely happy we didn’t have to get up early.

After we woke up in the morning it was time to get ready and head back to the airport. We flew to Chiang Mai this afternoon because tomorrow we have our elephant excursion. When we made it to Chiang Mai we were pleasantly surprised by the town. There was a lot to see and we’re looking forward to exploring tomorrow after we get back.

We quickly checked into the hotel and arranged to have our laundry done. We were all a little low on clean clothing, so we were ecstatic to find out that there was a service available and it was incredibly cheap. Then we had to take care of a few more planning details, mainly paying for our China tour and confirming the details for the elephant excursion tomorrow. Unfortunately, when we went to confirm the elephant excursion we realized that they had booked us on the wrong day, we were able to get it sorted out though and we’re all set for tomorrow.

Now it’s time for us to go to bed, we have to be up early!

Happy Travels,

Brooke, Ryan & Melissa
