On August 16th, 2012 I started my journey to Thailand to work at the Elephant hospital for Vet School.. But, before I boarded my flight I did some last minute southern traditions!
Oh, and of course a Starbucks drink when I got to the Airport! (double Choclate chip mocha)
Now, I’m off and ready to go chase my dream in Thailand..
So, I get to the gate I’m supposed to be at to catch my flight to Chicago. And, I get this tweet from American Airlines..
As you can imagine I’m freaking out, and worried about if I’m gonna make my flight to Chicago to catch my flight to Tokyo. Long story short, I ended up missing my flight to Tokyo from Chicago. So I went to the American Airlines information desk to see if I could even get a flight out of Chicago.. They had a spot left leaving at 8 PM that night, and instead of Flying to Tokyo they had me stop in Germany. So I had a little bit of a Layover in Chicago, but I didn’t complain one bit because I had phone service a bit longer.. And, I had the chance to eat at Chilis an get a drink before I boarded my long 9 hour flight to Germany..
Oh ya, here’s my small plane ride (literally) to Chicago!
Drink of choice on my layover in Chicago at Chilis.. Strawberry Margarita mmm!!
Times up, and I’m about to board my flight to Germany! So I say all my goodbyes, and I love you’s to all of my friends an family as I had no service for my phone or Internet why I was in Thailand.
9 hours later, and I’m finally in Germany! Did I mention I also have a 9 hour layover in Germany? Funny story, the gal I sat with to Germany also had a 9 hour layover! So she invited me out to the city.. We take our bags to the baggage office to see if they can watch our bags, an so they did.. Now, begins my 9 hour journey in Germany..
(I didn’t take any photos of the city of Germany, because dumb me I forgot my phone in my carry on bag that I had left behind)
Places I went, an visited in Germany:
And some fancy restaurants of course ❤
So, now it’s time for me to head back to the airport an board my flight to Bangkok.
My flight to Bangkok airport went by super fast! Probably because I slept most of it 😉
Drivers side on right side ayyyyeee!!!
This is Pepsi I had a chance to do some vet treatment on this cute bear. She always greeted me at the gate when it was time for vet treatment.

My last day at the Elephant hospital in Thailand was the hardest day ever for me.. I had gotten woken up at 3 AM by Elvis moaning and banging his head against the building, and by his stomping. Not to mention, Elvis was having trouble breathing.. Also, I have another problem Elvis can’t lay down or he won’t be able to get back up. So, as I’m checking Elvis for any open wounds I notice Elvis is in the position to sit down so I’m trying everything to make Elvis keep standing. But nothing I could do worked or helped stopped Elvis from sitting down. So, now I’m stuck with finding someone to help me get Elvis back up on his feet. Trust me, finding someone at 3 AM for help was probably the hardest thing ever.. Eventually, I got some help to get Elvis back up on his feet from a group of guys that have a crane an pulled him up. So, now here comes the worst news ever.. I had to end up putting Elvis in Quarentine for 2 months and Elvis sickness has gotten worse. They keep running tests, and still looking for what’s wrong. I keep hoping an praying that they will find out what’s wrong. Before I left Elvis I gave him a bunch of love an kisses. I will miss Elvis and I’ll never forget this crazy fun adventure that I had the chance to take! I’m a firm believer in chasing your dreams, but I’m also a risk taker.. Iv taken risks all my life to get where Iam today, an I wouldn’t change it for anything.
