Penn Badgley Talks Riding Elephants

Penn Badgley Talks Riding Elephants

Penn Badgley gets a trim at the Tommy Guns Salon in downtown New York City in this feature from Conde Nast Traveler magazine’s March 2011 issue.

The 24-year-old actor shared some of his favorite memories from traveling around the world. Check it:

On visiting Asia: “A couple years ago, I spent a month in Southeast Asia. I went scuba diving off Thailand and saw barracuda baring teeth that shone like metal. I stayed at the Four Seasons Chiang Mai, where the highlight was riding an elephant bareback— mine was named Mae Ma, and her calm personality mirrored mine.”

On his favorite places to visit in Utah: “[M]y annual adventure is always skiing in Park City with semipro, backflipping friends. We always end up at Devanza’s for pizza and beer.”

    this guy seems like he is a conceited person trying very hard to seem humble. but it comes off as fake. at least he is trying i guess.
    otherwise he’d be in douchebag category like adam levine and john mayer.

    Aaaw that was when he went with Blake to Thailand. Although I never really liked them as a couple, you can tell they still love eachother – maybe just not IN love.
