    Chai Machete Tour....

    January 5 in Thailand ⋅ ☁️ 24 °C

    Today we took a boat ride from Chiang Rai up the Mae Kok River 🚣‍♀️. Our tour guide Chai and his dog Panda met us at the dock (Chloë and Malcolm wore a snake 🐍) and we drove to the start of our trek 🚘 . We had a lot of climbing to do. Along the way we planted trees as part of a reforestation project 🌱. Chai carried a machete 🗡 , he used it to make many different toys for the children (a bamboo pop gun, elephant grass airplanes, a banana leaf hobby horse). He also used his machete to carve spoons 🥄, bowls 🥣, cups 🥛, cooking pots, and chopsticks 🥢 for our lunch. On the menu was pork 🥓, chicken🍗, eggs🥚, soup🍲 and noodles 🍝 that were all cooked over a fire. During lunch a giant bamboo tree 🎋 fell a few metres from our lunch spot (yikes). On the trek we walked through several hill tribe villages and saw farms of pineapple 🍍 , garlic and oolong tea🍵. We hiked a really long way and then jumped in the back of a pick up truck (two bikes 🚲 , seven people 🧒👧👱‍♀️🧔👩👨🏽‍🦳👨🏾and two wet dogs 🐕🐕 ) to ride to a natural hot spring. 🛁

    Around Chiang Rai

    October 11, 2018 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    With the weather looking a little overcast we went on a little motorbike ride next to the Kok River, passing by yellowing rice paddy fields and pineapple fields. Lila was surprised that pineapples grow from the ground like that (as she thought they came from a tree). We make a very quick stop at a hot spring and then pass an elephant camp and had a little ride. Heading back to town we met up with one of the very grown up kids from Baan Nana, now working in Chiang Rai.
    That night was another night bus to Bangkok for our journey southwards towards Malaysia.

    Chiang Rai

    January 12 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Our next stop in Thailand was the small town of Chiang Rai. Our flight time from Bangkok to Chiang Rai ended up being shorter than the trip from downtown Bangkok to the Bangkok airport, with the 30km journey taking over an hour.

    Northern Thailand was a nice escape from Bangkok. Chiang Rai was really laid back. We visited a few temples here, and our favourite one was the white temple. An unconvential temple which was built by a local artist. The place was pretty impressive, but our favourite bit of the temple was a room which had murals with flames and demon faces in amongst western idols including Terminator, Freddy Krueger, Harry Potter and Michael Jackson. Unfortunately you weren’t allowed to take photos of this room.

    A hour long massage in Thailand will set you back about $10, so we got a few of these in Chiang Rai. We also stayed around the corner from a local food joint which served only two dishes. Dry noodles or soup noodles with different bits of pork. To this day I’m still unsure of the cut of pork we got but I’m fairly confident you’d find it in the pet food aisle back home. We didn’t return here, but you can find a lot of other places that have really great Thai food.

    There’s a market on every night in Chiang Rai so we made the trip here. It’s a small market that sells a few local items but has a large food court here. We found a place that made a type of coconut soup with roasted sesame seeds and bits of fruit. Not the best description but these things were our favourite food item we found in all of Thailand.

    Back to Nature :)

    October 21, 2018 in Thailand ⋅ 🌧 28 °C

    Ja Tempel sind toll, aber sooooo viele... und bei manchen Tempeln fühlt man sich wie in einer Touri-Maschinerie (hunderte von touri-Vans, Drehkreuz vorm Tempel, Plastiktüte in die Hand für die Schuhe, keine Fotos im Tempel, Scheinchen irgendwo reinstecken)... also sind wir froh als wir uns wieder auf die Räder schwingen und die Umgebung so entdecken außerhalb der typischen Touri-Stopps. Es ist toll zu sehen, wie Landschaft immer grüner wird, die „Häuser/Hütten“ weniger werden und man sich auf einmal in einer anderen Welt fühlt. Wir könnten stundenlang nur so durch die Gegend fahren, die Natur bestaunen und beobachten, wie die Menschen hier leben. Angekommen an unserem Ziel, mussten wir wandern und schwitzen. Dafür wurden wir mit einem gewaltigen Wasserfall belohnt, den wir ungläubig angestarrt haben ❤️Read more

    Chiang Rai

    February 9 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Kurze Chillerei in Thailand (Chiang Rai) als Übergangsstation zwischen Laos und Thailand.
    In Chiang Rai gibts eigentlich nichts besonders zu sehen.. Allerdings waren wir am Tag der Weiterreise sehr überrascht als morgens um 8 Uhr die Nationalhymne Thailands ertönte und alle von ihren Plätzen am Busbahnhof Aufständen und der Hymne lauschten.Read more
