This February, Events & Adventures ventured out on a 14-day international trip to the exotic paradise of Thailand. What better way to learn about this amazing trip than hearing from the people that got to go on the adventure themselves?
We had a super fun Q & A with two of our members that joined Events & Adventures on our exciting Thailand trip: Rachel Wolfson from our Chicago Club and Susan Euing from our San Francisco Club. Here’s what they had to say about their time abroad with Events & Adventures:
Q: Have you ever been abroad before this trip?
R: Yes, but not with Events & Adventures. This was a first.
S: Yes, many times, but this was my first time with Events & Adventures.
Q: What was your favorite part of traveling with Events & Adventures?
R: My favorite part was meeting the different people from the other Events & Adventures locations and learning about Thailand from Natalie (our tour guide). It was fantastic exploring somewhere I had never been before.
S: The trip itinerary and it was a really great price!
Q: Out of all of the excursions you went on while in Thailand, which was your favorite and why?
R: I loved the floating river lodge. You got to be away from the rest of the world, no electricity, very peaceful while hearing the water underneath and relaxing overall. Also, we got to meet our first elephant, Wandi!
S: Personally, my favorite was the Hmong village. It was filled with very interesting people and culture.
Q: What was something unexpected that happened on the trip that left you pleasantly surprised?
R: When we got to play with baby tigers- they were so cute and surprisingly big at a month and a half old. I couldn’t believe the size of their paws at that age!
S: I had a wonderful and very compatible roommate. We are keeping up our new friendship even though we live two states away.
Q: Did you come back with any fun souvenirs?
R: A photo with frame (made out of recycled elephant dung) of one of my best friends from E&A and myself riding on U2, the elephant. We had lots of laughs on her and another elephant, as well as along the trip! Lots of great memories!
S: I bought a pig made out of rope for the year of the pig!
Q: If you could give someone going on Events & Adventures’s next Thailand trip a tip, what would it be?
R: Don’t be afraid to try something you’ve never done before. And make sure you bring comfortable walking shoes; there are lots of stairs! Try sitting with someone new each time you are sitting on the way to one of the spots you are going to explore so you can get to know them! you never know what type of similarities you might have!
S: Bring more dressy clothes than you think you’ll need and get a full-body Thai massage!
Susan and Rachel’s amazing memories prove you can create lasting bonds while traveling the world with Events & Adventures. We can hardly wait for our next journey to a faraway land!
What exhilarating vacation will you be joining us on? Will you be floating down the Amazon River with us in August or staying stateside in NYC during the Holiday Season in November?
