Thank you for stopping by for our monthly blog hop. This month features our incentive trip. Although just a handful of photos are below, I can tell you that there is so much more along with millions of memories. I only wish I could have packed you all into my suitcase so you could experience it for yourself.
There are too many great memories on this trip. One of the things I treasured is all of the new people I met on the pre trip to Bangkok. We had the best time spending two days of morning until evening touring. We saw so many things in such a short span. Above is our Bangkok group in front of one of the many Buddhist Temples we visited. After about three days of the Thailand humidity, I found out that not wearing makeup was best as it came off after five minutes. I live in the state of Georgia in the United States. I always thought we had humidity in Georgia, but both Thailand and Japan beat our humidity in every way. It was unbelievable but one of the memories I will never forget.
In Bangkok, we took a boat to shop on a floating shopping area. What a trip it was. Elephant pants were purchased there. My son who went with me as my guest is sitting in the front of the boat. The Thai people love to barter, so we all bartered for everything at this shopping area. It was hilarious!
Our group had the best lunch on our tour. I wish I could tell you the name of the restaurant but I can not. It sat on the river though which had an amazing view. Again the people made this trip so memorable.
My son James and I took a Thai cooking class in Phuket. We walked to the market and our teacher (above) showed us how to buy Thai produce. She is holding a cockroach which is something used for food in Thailand. Thank goodness we did not have to cook with them, but I loved how she showed us what the people would buy. We all cooked a dish and then when all four courses were complete, we sat in the Blue Elephant restaurant where we had the class to eat our concoctions. It was a great experience and except for the fact that we had two dishes with squid in them, it was all pretty good.
Last but not least, we spent three days in Tokyo, Japan. Although in Asia, Tokyo was totally different than Thailand. In every way. It gave me insight into two different cultures which I loved. In Tokyo, James and I toured a Japanese garden across from our hotel. Above was where we would stamp our brochure. What better way to share a stamping incentive trip than to show a photo of where I stamped my brochure. Tokyo was huge! I travel in London often so the Japanese subway reminded me of the tube in London. Easy to manage and took us everywhere. I absolutely loved the Tokyo district of Tokyo where I did major damage in the shopping area. Everything was extremely useful in the stores I purchased from with so much class and quality. They also wrapped each gift which reminded me of many places in Europe. A great experience.
