Join Thor and me as our Thailand virtual vacation continues with a nature walk around the eco-lodge at Khao Sok National Park.
NOTE: “And now for something completely different.” Thor and I made our first trip to Asia — the beautiful country of Thailand. We were lucky to squeak through the pandemic flight closures in January/February of 2020 as we returned from our three-week trip. Since more travel has now become a distant prospect, we hope you’ll take a virtual vacation with us in the following weeks. (This blog series started on June 13.)
Last time (post #11) we arrived at Our Jungle House, an eco-lodge on 25 acres of rainforest nestled against the Khao Sok wilderness. After the crowds in Bangkok and on the island of Koh Samui, Thor and I caught grateful breaths of serene quiet here in our treehouse suspended in green nature. Our “Liana” treehouse perched next to a beautiful, clear river, a welcome place for a swim to cool off in the muggy heat.
Looking upstream, you can see the karst limestone cliff towering over the river, where monkeys — long-tailed macaques — shelter in holes. We’ll see more of these lively critters in an upcoming post, but the top photo above shows one munching bamboo next to our deck.
