THAILAND’s KHAO SOK NATIONAL PARK, ELEPHANTS & SLEEPING IN A TENT IN THE JUNGLE
Vlog #27 // Khao Sok National Park, Thailand. Hello, Hej, Ciao! Nico and Louise here 🙂
This Vlog Series around Thailand marks the BEGINNING OF OUR NEW LIFE. In fact, this trip was life changing for us and during our time in Thailand we were confronted with deep thoughts that questioned our lifestyle, beliefs, and values.
We can’t tell you everything that’s on our minds right now but stay tuned to see what happens next.
In this Vlog we visit the ELEPHANT HILLS SANCTUARY in the stunning National Park of KHAO SOK in Thailand. In the morning we have the opportunity of spending time with rescued elephants, watch them bathe, washing them and feeding them. It was a truly magical experience.
In the second part of the vlog we get to our tent in the middle of one of the oldest rainforests in the world. Sleeping in the tent for two nights was another incredible experience for us. We were completely in touch with nature, with the sounds of the jungle, and with the incredible hospitality of the Thai people.

A LITTLE ABOUT US
Originally from a small town in Italy (Nico) and Copenhagen (Louise) we met in Dublin in May 2015 while working in the same team for the same company [awkward :-s].
Soon after our first date we discovered our common love for travels, food, health and adventure. After all, both of us had left our home countries several years earlier to explore new cultures and different ways of living.
After several short trips around Europe we embarked on a longer trip to Thailand that, little did we know, would COMPLETELY CHANGE OUR LIFE.
It was April 2018 during Songkran celebrations when on a HOT late afternoon in Bangkok’s Lumpini Park a group of overly friendly Tai Chi practicing ladies blessed us with purifying water and clay while the Thai SUN was warmly setting over the tall city skyline.
On our way home we were unusually quiet. When we finally looked at each other we immediately knew: THAT was the day when EVERYTHING CHANGED.
