Q & A with Adventurous Alfie

One of our youngest travellers here at The Family Adventure Company tells us why he loves Thailand so much, and we couldn't agree more!

Q1. What is your best memory of the holiday?

A1. The day with the elephants. I fed them watermelons and pumpkins. We gave them a bath as well in the river. It was the first time I met an elephant.

Q2. Did you visit many temples?

A2. Loads of temples. Hundreds. Well maybe about 20. We said prayers with a monk and rang the temple bells. We climbed about 500 steps to the monkey temple. There was a big family of monkeys that we fed as well.

Q3. What was your favourite food? Did you like it?

A3. I quite liked the curries. We went to one McDonalds. I also found an ‘Alfie’ chocolate bar.

Q4. Did the hotels have swimming pools?

A4. I think I swam every day. I had a lot of fun playing with my brother and sister. One pool had a little slide and I also swam in a waterfall.

Q5. Did you travel on any strange vehicles?

A5. Yes. We travelled on two trains that went all night. I woke up and had breakfast on the train. There were bunk beds and I had the bottom bunk.

Q6. What was the weather like?

A6. Hot. Really hot. It was summertime and we had lots of ice creams. Ame and I found a fan in one temple.

Editor’s Note:

Alfie travelled on our Thailand, Land of Smiles trip. Alfie is only 6 years old and has admitted that he had a little bit of help from his older brother and sister with a couple of his answers.
