Take me to Thailand

Where do I even begin. At the beginning of the year Cole and I got invited on the trip of a lifetime. For those of you who don't know we are originally from SLC, UT. And again for those of you who don't know, Utah is pack jam full of some of the most talented people on the planet. I feel really lucky to know many of these fine young individuals and to have ended up on a magical trip in Thailand with them. Liz and Dave, the owners of the swim and workout company Albion Fit, designed some insanely amazing pieces for their newest collection (which is now available!!). We got to travel through Thailand, adventuring and shooting bringing this collection to life. I know this blog post will have way too many photos and you probably won't even get all the way to the bottom, but this post means so much to me. I love it so much and I am so happy I have a place to document this time in my life.

As a big thank you to all of you who are coming with me over to YouTube I am hosting a GIVEAWAY! All you you have to do is subscribe to the channel, comment on the Thailand video, tag two friends in my recent Instagram post and follow me as well as @albionfit. The winner will receive a Mini Instax Fuji Film camera as well as a new swim suit from Albion Fit.  And on top of that if you use my code (TEZZAMB15) you will receive 15 percent off Albion Fit. YAY! 
I remember the first day we got there. We woke up at 5 AM, loaded into a little truck, and headed to the water. It was still pitch dark outside as we got aboard a little wooden boat to catch the sun coming up. You know when you have seen pictures of a place and think well, it's probably not as pretty in person? Thailand exceeds all expectations. It is without a doubt the most beautiful place I have ever seen. The water is as pretty as the Crayola crayon you used to think only existed in your crayon box. The sunrise is actually picture perfect, each island is so lush and full of hidden secrets and caves, the magic is just endless. No one else was on the water that morning, we pulled up to an island surrounded by other islands, it was peaceful and felt untouched, as if we were the first to discover it.
The next day I remember we were so excited because well hello PINK BOAT! How does that even happen? The day we were shooting the pink collection the boat that pulled up just happened to match!? I told you this place is magic. Jessica Janae ( best photographer in all the land) had just purchased some insane under water camera gear so we were able to capture us swimming with hundreds of stunning fish. It was just breathtaking beyond anything I've ever seen! 

When we would cruise around the island we would all load up into this big white van. It was hard not to want to pull over every two seconds to take a photo but as soon as we saw the amazing rows of palms it was an absolute must. I remember thinking ' ohhh this will be sick, I am going to kind of climb up the tree, snag a coconut or something lol' So there I go inching my way up while jess is shooting, next thing you know, MASSIVE BLACK SCARY HORRIFYING WORST MOMENT OF MY LIFE GIANT SPIDER. I ran screaming and that was the end of that. 
One evening Cole and I went on a walk down the street and stumbled into what might have been the most magical moment of the trip. Underneath a tin roof in the middle of nowhere as the sun was going down and turing everything to gold we looked to our left and saw these young boys at Muay Thai practice. It felt like walking into a movie scene. The weights were old and rusty, the punching bags were so beautifully aged they looked like pieces of art and there was even an old tv, dead serious like you picture in the movies sitting on a tin table. As we approached the boys got excited and decided to give us a little show. I took probably 4000 pictures because I just couldn't get enough. 


In Thailand there is apparently a little place called monkey island. Our boat driver told us about it and of course being typical tourists we all jumped for joy and said go there now! We pull up and yes monkeys all about. Long ago I went to India and remember seeing monkeys but these were mean monkeys the kind you want to stay away from. So of course I was a bit hesitant when we pulled up. But Salome, one of the models on the trip, casually walks up and starts giving this monkey water from a water bottle. She was calm and so was the monkey so naturally we all think ok fun I wanna try. So we all start approaching, but you have to understand these monkeys get greedy, if one is getting something they all want it. We had another water bottle which was just in someone's hand and as the monkey reached for it Jessica panicked tossed it to Madeline who then panicked and tossed it to Lexi who tried to move but the money saw it flying to her hand and leaped onto her with his teeth out which led to Lexi getting bit by a monkey. This is not as casual as it may seem. Monkeys' carry rabies which is seriously scary business. We had to go find a hospital right away. It ended up being funny and a good story but I would recommend just looking at theses monkeys from afar. 








Dragons Tounge, what was said to be a casual hike was not so casual. All uphill like real hiking lol.   I think you can tell it was worth it once getting to the top. We made it there right as the sun started to set which was insanely beautiful. It may seem like I am not standing close enough to the edge but I can't begin to tell you how terrifying it was up there. On the way up to the hike we saw this amazing little scene in the forest. A log had fallen across a mossy stream and we thought ugh picture moment and so 4 of us girls went to the log and began to walk across. About half way through Madeline goes 'wait I think I heard it cracking?' Before I can even think I take one more step and WHAM the tree breaks in half as I fall back first into a muddy, slushy, spidery swamp and am covered in all that fun stuff. You know when you are with people and you are laughing at yourself but at the same time you kind of want to cry but you aren't hurt or anything and it's awkward and you wish you could just run away. Well that was me haha. All ended up being fine and we continued on the hike. Now If you happen to do this hike. You want to come down before the sun does. I don't think I have ever run downhill faster in my life. I am talking we are in a straight up jungle. Weird noises and creatures started coming out. As I would run to the side of me an animal was following it felt like a jaguar was going to jump out at me at any moment. Luckily we all made it down safe, but it was a thrill. 


Last this section is just some of my favorite swims shot around where we were staying. This place was like a Thai palace and basically every day since I have been trying to figure out a way to go back and move in. Albion makes so many cool swimsuits I really don't think I could pick a favorite.
