Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Elephants Chiang Mai Thailand

When you are riding an elephant and it wants a snack, you comply

When you are riding on the back of a couple ton elephant, and it wants a snack, you do not fool around. You do not throw it and have him chase after it, you dont’ switch it from hand-to-hand, no you just offer.  On an adventure out in the country close to Chiang Mai, Thailand, they gave me a batch of bananas to start with, but my ride quickly dispatched it. As soon as I was out ,the trunk came back anyway. Fortunately, they had a stand with a lady in it selling bananas and singha. After a pit stop there, we were both happy.


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
