Better Late Than Never

My dear friend Anita reminded me that I haven't posted about my trip. So, while I'm sitting here waiting to see if my boyfriend George Clooney wins another Academy Award I'll fill you in! I tried to write this right after I got back but I hit the wrong button and it all went away and I got frustrated and forgot to come back. But seeing as how this award show will never end I'm sure I'm going to have plenty of time now!

We started off by having a surprise layover in Seoul, Korea. Our flight from Kansas City was delayed and so we missed our connecting flight to Bangkok, so Korean Airlines put us up in a great hotel in the heart of downtown Seoul. It was a welcomed surprise. It was so cold, though, and since we were on our way to the beach neither of us brought a coat, so we weren't able to explore as much as we would have liked to. But we did have a Korean Starbucks and that helped warm me up a bit :-)

This was the best part of Seoul. The Pasta Cone. Jeff wouldn't eat one even though I told him that my friend Gina is going to want to know what they tasted like.

Bangkok- ugh. Not my favorite place in the world. Wouldn't mind if I never went there again. It was dirty and smelly and icky and I just didn't like it. I'm sure it was a combination of jet lag and culture shock, but I cried most of the first day. Poor Jeff. I was trying to figure out ways to get back to America and he was trying to hold me together. He was so sweet and promised to protect me. Oh, and we had McDonalds in Bangkok. You'll be glad to know that McDonalds is McDonalds no matter what country you're in. Well, they did have this chocolate banana pie that looked a whole lot like pot roast in a fried pie... not very appealing...

This is the Grand Palace in Bangkok. I was so scared getting there that I seriously tried to get back home ASAP!

This was my solace in Bangkok.

Phuket- Oh, Phuket... How I long to be back on your warm beaches... The resort we stayed in was gorgeous- Five Star- and the beds were so comfy! I didn't even want to get out of the room it was so great. We ate on the beach every meal (jealous much?) for about $5. I got to play in the ocean (just up to my neck, of course) and the most beautiful infinity pool I've ever seen.

This was the view from my room. Yes, I woke up to this everyday. Hard life. I know.

This is my favorite picture from the trip. We were on a beach named Krabi. Breathtaking.

I got to ride an elephant. This is not a picture of me acutally on the elephant, but I am touching an elephant here. I swear I rode one. A big one.

This is me on a boat. With no life jacket. And my best cheesy smile. I'd ride a boat to see that beauty any day!

Here's me & Jeff at the resort. Aren't we just cute?

And finally....

Need I say more????

There's so much more, but my boyfriend just lost to Daniel Day Lewis who, btw did a FABULOUS job on There Will Be Blood. His award was well deserved. But I'm kinda bummed that cute little Ellen Page didn't win for Juno. That is by far my favorite movie of the past year. If you haven't seen it you really should. Jeff & I have seen it twice. I've seen all the nominated movies except for Atonement- not a Kiera Knightly fan... And now I've stayed up until the last award. Well past my bedtime. But yay for No Country For Old Men. Another great movie.

So, I'll go to bed for now and post some more pics here in the next couple of days. Have a great Monday!
