In 10th grade, in an exercise to get to know each other, my teacher asked each student to share what their favorite food was. I remember that moment well because the question was a hard one for me to admit to, but my answer that I still stand by today is toast. Like the kind you have for breakfast with jam. Or maybe peanut butter. I just love toast. Wheat toast to be exact.
We started this year of travel with only a handful of must-do activities. For me, spending a day with rescued elephants was very close to the top of that list. So, when I realized we would be in Chiang Mai on my birthday I knew exactly how we would spend it—with elephants.
Somehow, I feel busier now than when I had a full-time job, a dog to take care of, and a workout routine. I blame the constant sensory overload of traveling through foreign countries. Not that blame matters. The point is I have not written as much as I would have liked to.
