Koh Samui #2

Posted by spots (Singapore, Singapore) on 10 December 2011 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

One of the most memorable experiences from our recent family holiday, at least for me, was riding on an elephant with Daniel!

We opted for the 30 minute ride, as opposed to the 1 hour-long ride, and boy am I glad we did! I was terrified! My right hand was gripping onto the side of the chair so tight, and my left hand was curled round Daniel's back. I was "pretending" to hold him securely, but actually, I was clinging onto him for my dear life! Bwahaha.

I think Daniel was quite scared too, but we were both good sports and smiled our best for everybody else who was fearlessly using both their hands to hold their cameras and take lots of shots of us! SM even gamely rode on the elephant's head !!

I'm not sure I would do the elephant ride again. But it was definitely an experience that I'm glad I tried!

It was a good thing Esther was taking her nap, and didn't join us for the trekking. I think she would have been screaming all the way! =)
