A volunteer honeymoon in Thailand. We had decided we were going somewhere we both had never been to and we wanted to do something to give back.
I met Jonathan, we fell in love, and then we got married. Happily ever after? I’d like to call it “Our Happy Beginning”.
Our first adventure as husband and wife was our volunteer honeymoon. Three weeks of exploring Thailand sounds amazing right? However, our one week of volunteering was not only our favorite, but the most amazing and life changing experience for us as a couple.
Volunteer Honeymoon – Deciding where to go
The best decision we’ve ever made while planning our wedding was waiting to go on our honeymoon a couple months after the big day. Planning a wedding already is a large production in and of itself, and we wanted to take the time to plan to go somewhere and do something meaningful on our honeymoon.
We had decided we were going somewhere we both had never been to (which was hard considering my husband had practically been everywhere for his company Explore Inspired) and we wanted to do something to give back. Thailand it was!
Truthfully, we based this decision entirely on my obsession with elephants. We knew a little about the horrors of elephant riding, logging, and entertainment, until some extensive research when we came across The Elephant Nature Park.
