Greetings from Thailand

We’re in Thailand! We’ve been here one full day and so far it is everything I imagined it would be. There’s constant visual stimulation and the plants are incredible.

I had hoped to do a proper post with pictures by now, but this whole jet lag thing is real and it is kicking my butt really hard. Instead, I’ve been adding pictures to my Flickr account as I go, along with a few Twitter updates as wifi becomes available.

My spouse Davin is only shooting film on this trip so I don’t imagine he will be adding any images to his Flickr account, but you can follow along with his side of the adventure via Twitter and cellphone pics.

Our friend and fellow plant enthusiast Derek is also on this trip. You can check out his view of the trip from his Flickr account. It’s especially nice to be touring around with other plant geeks — our mutual excitement is contagious, although incredibly dorky.

  1. That’s all just the first day? I don’t think it’s jet lag, I think it’s hyperventilation because you must be gasping at each new sight! Can’t thank you enough for sharing!

  2. what pretty lotus flowers? Have you seen any of the HUGE lily pads that you can actually float around on?? Wish I could see through your eys for a day!

  3. Excitement is good. Dorkey Excitement is even better :D

    That Lotus looks amazing, the one near the front looks almost as if it has been folded out of paper or something!

  4. Nice to see you made it safely and are already enjoying lots of great flowers and fruits. You know you’re in the tropics when the coconuts come with a Dendrobium decoration.

  5. I’m new to your blog, and enjoying the information and pictures! My husband has been to Thailand and says it’s incredibly gorgeous. Looking forward to hearing more!
