It’s Nothing An Elephant Couldn’t Cure

I am so confused! I’m at the transition between Summer and Fall. Even though the weather is still warm, a lot of Fall collections are making their appearance, making me actually look forward to cooler weather. I feel as though I have to get all my Summer posts out of my system before Fall completely sets in. Besides, I’m not ready to say good-bye to those warm summer nights.

I first heard of glamping in an issue of H&M that talked about “maximizing your festival pleasure with style”; glamour plus camping. Clever, eh? The idea of living it up outdoors luxury-style is the ultimate summer getaway fantasy. I came across the Four Seasons in Thailand that takes glamping to an international scale, complete with massage treatments overlooking jungle-scapes and trekking through rainforests on elephants.

It would be so amazing to see lush green vegetation everywhere instead of concrete jungles for a change. And I would forgo my car for a couple weeks and gladly ride Dumbo to the supermarket instead.

Hi, Uncle! Hi, Auntie!

While I am proud to say that I’ve ridden and swam with a dolphin before, how many people can say they’ve fed an elephant while sippin’ on some midday tea? Now, that’s going on my bucket list!

This is the spa with a view I was talking about. Talk about utopia. I would never want to leave.

My dream bathtub would be like soaking in bliss like this.

I think Four Seasons wants to play up their elephant attractions…

Burma is so lucky.

This is the tent at the Four Seasons. Yes, I said tent…get ready for the most amazing glamping ever

The bathroom amenities in the tent is better than the bathroom I’ve seen at most hotels. Geez!

This rain shower is probably my most favorite thing in the tent. If I never get to go to Four Seasons in Thailand, I want to install one of these bad boys in my future dream house.

Curiosity got the best of me and I had to check the rates. It ruined the fantasy, but I couldn’t help it. In my little fantasy world, I would spend about 2 weeks riding elephants, getting massages and trekking through rainforests. According to the currency converter, that little fantasy would cost about $1,500 a night. Riiiight. It reminds me of Travis McCoy’s, Billionaire (gawd, I so know what he means!) which is what I wish I was in order to get my jet-set glamping on! *Sigh* Oh, well. I think I’ll just stare at these pictures on this post when I’m most in need of escape and invest in a large fern plan. Or adopt an elephant.
