The first time I said ‘my husband’ was in a hospital in rural Thailand on our honeymoon. Oh yeah, I like to mix things up.
DH and I went to Thailand for our honeymoon, thanks to an incredible deal on flights. The trip was planned: Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and then the islands. We did Bangkok, saw the tigers and the market, took a cooking class…. And then on Day 3 we got into a motorcycle accident. A car took a wide turn as we were going up a mountain and we had to crash down the side of the hill to keep from him hitting us. Oh, and the hill (as it turned out) was covered in fire ants. Yay.
We’re fine but spent some time in the hospital and a few days unable to move. But we made our flight to the island and got to spend the rest of the time barely moving, enjoying pain meds with a gorgeous view. It was amazing and horrible and memorable. Oh, and a damn good excuse for an awesome 1 yr anniversary trip 🙂 Plus, who else has scars to remember their honeymoon by?

Oh my gosh! I’m so sorry about the accident!! I’m glad you are both OK now and at least enjoyed some of the honeymoon. You will never forget it-that is for sure! And I like your idea of going back for an anniversary! No more motorcyles when you go next time. 🙂

I am glad you are ok!
The way you presented the story almost makes it kind of comical though. You will laugh about it in the future? Yes? 🙂

Thanks, everyone. And yes, we were laughing then and still are… If we can get through that together, we’ll be set on all of our future travels!

Man – quite the honeymoon it sounds like! Glad you’re okay though. I love Thailand – it is so beautiful. Definitely worth a trip back.
@Jenn23: I’ll speak from experience that they are hard to avoid over there. There are very few cars in Thailand (and many of the SE Asian countries for that matter) and often times, most all of the taxis are motorcycles, not cars. It can be a little nerve-wracking when you’re trying to get from place to place.
