    And a happy New Year !

    January 1 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    To ring in the New Year Chiang Mai-style, we headed to the Old City, stopping at a Wat to send our New Year wishes up into the sky via lantern. After the kids were in bed, Geoff and I snuck back out to join the party by the city moat. I can’t get enough of these lanterns. They are so beautiful (until the next morning when the streets are littered with ashes and metal rings!). Happy New Year everyone and best wishes for 2019!Read more

    Fish spa

    December 12, 2018 in Thailand ⋅ 🌧 27 °C

    Last night when we were on our way home from Muay Thai, we came across a ‘fish spa’ which was a bunch of cushioned benches, and at the bottom of each bench there was a fish tank with at least 50 fish in it. Malcolm and I were the only ones brave enough to try it (my dad was too chicken to go near it). We got a 10 minute treatment for only 60 baht each (less than $3 each). First, you have to clean your feet with a wet cloth, then you stick them in the tank and all the fish come and nibble at your feet. Everyone who walked by was staring and smiling, and a few people decided to try it after seeing us do it. It almost felt like they should be paying us instead of the other way around because we attracted so much attention! Malcolm had to take his feet out of the tank after about 5 minutes because it felt so weird. It felt really weird and tingly but after a while it felt pretty good!

    Erstmal ankommen

    January 3 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Tja und nun stehen wir am Busterminal und es ist viel zu früh für Frühstück oder ähnliches. Dann gibts als erstes halt mal nen Grab zum Guest House, das hat bereits ab 7.00 Check-in.

    Leider kommen wir auch da etwas früh an und müssen deshalb ungefähr eine halbe Stunde vor der Rezeption warten. Als der holländische Besitzer dann aufsperrt erfahren wir, dass zu unserem Glück (und seinem Verdruss) gestern jemand nicht angereist ist und deshalb ein Zimmer bezugsfertig ist. Als wir ins Zimmer kommen ist für uns beide klar: ab ins Bett!😅😴

    Als wir gegen 13.00 wieder aufwachen, fühlen wir uns deutlich erfrischter. Heute haben wir eeh nicht viel geplant. Wir ziehen los um zu frühstücken (oder wie auch immer das um 14.30 heissen sollte). Danach finden wir nach kurzem Suchen das Büro des Elephant Nature Park wo wir uns einen Besuch der Elefantenstation organisieren. Nun gehts weiter zur Wäscherei 1km entfernt. Allerdings springt uns 50m neben dem Büro ein genau solcher Laden ins Auge, schon wieder Glück. Wir verbringen eine gemütlich Stunde im Waschsalon und watscheln dann happy über unsere abgearbeitete Liste zurück ins Guest House. Hier versuchen wir noch, mit mässigem Erfolg, unsere weissen Kleider etwas zu bleichen. Das müssen wir woll auf die Schweiz verschieben - "bis dahin haben wir die Shirts in Eierschale gekauft" (Annatina, 29, Mode-Pragmatikerin) 😁

    Fürs Abendessen suchen wir uns im Netz ein gemütliches Lokal aus und dann auf der Strasse noch eines, das auch offen hat 😅.
    Nach dem Essen bummeln wir noch etwas durch einen der Nacht-Basare und amüsieren uns über all die Touri-Souveniers, die wir erst dann kaufen, wenn wir nach Hause fliegen. Etwas müde, aber zufrieden mit dem Tag kommen wir zurück in unser Zimmer und legen ins Bett.

    Sabaai Sabaai! Animals and Street Life

    December 26, 2018 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 79 °F

    "Sabaai” has so many meanings: well, comfortable, how are you? fine, and relaxed—for starters. Even though Chiang Mai is in the cooler north of Thailand, it is still tropical. While my Thai neighbors shiver in 67-degree evening “cold season” weather, and dress their dogs in cotton coats, I feel relief: it’s finally not so HOT!! In the midst of my nearly overwhelmingly intense Thai language studies, I certainly have not lost my joy in wandering the streets of Chiang Mai, and finding all sorts of visual treasures. Well, treasures in MY eyes!

    I also moved twice, for a total of three separate locations in the center of Chiang Mai. Because I booked my Airbnb properties for only a month, the time after my booking was immediately snatched by another person—the “cold season,” November to January, is considered The Time To Visit Thailand.

    I hope you get a little of Chiang Mai atmosphere from these photos!

    Asia Tour - Chiang Mai - Thailand

    February 7 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    First update for almost a week! I haven’t done much, I’ve just been chilling and just enjoying Chiang Mai. There was a huge flower festival here so I visited that plus the famous Sunday market (nearly killed everyone) visited a few more temples and today I hired my bike ready to do the Mae Song loop. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous about it as the bike is pretty powerful and I need some more practice but I’m also confident I can get by, I’ve driven 44t trucks so if I’m sensible and remember that I’m a novice I should be ok.

    I might go for a ride up to Doi Suthep tomorrow when the traffic is low to get some practice as it’s a narrow windy road which should give me some confidence going forward. It’s also supposed to be a brilliant place to watch the sunrise! So I may give that a go, see how I feel in the morning.

    Just some photos from the last few days

    Elephant love

    December 21, 2018 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 81 °F

    My friend Lauren and I spent an overnight at Elephant Land, two hours outside Chiang Mai. Our time consisted of feeding the five elephants lots of bananas, walking with them through the jungle, giving them a mud bath and rinse off in the very very cold waterfall. We spent the night in a rustic jungle hut, making friends with the Thai guides and the other fellow tourist Ahmen from Mumbai, eating a ton of curry, singing songs (Chang, the kids song about elephants) and drinking Thai home brewed rice wine. The next morning, we bushwhacked our way on a 4 mile hike through the Doi Inthonan national forest before heading back. Such a fun crazy adventure.Read more

    New home!

    December 27, 2018 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 79 °F

    Found ourselves a fancy new apartment in an awesome part of Chiang Mai to settle for a bit. It is beautiful and hopefully will be a great place for us, and our friend Summer who will be here a few weeks too. Eeks

    Spontaneous Half Marathon

    December 23, 2018 in Thailand ⋅ 🌙 66 °F

    At 5pm yesterday as Lauren and I were strolling through the old city, we stumbled upon the expo for the Chiang Mai Marathon, which was happening that night at 2am (yup, you read that right). In the spirit of spontaneity while traveling, we figured what the heck, let’s sign up for the half marathon!

    So a few hours later, we ran 13.1 miles under a full moon, through the streets of this amazing northern Thai city.

    I haven’t run in weeks and only shorter distances, so it was a lot slow and a little painful towards the end, but an awesome experience nonetheless.

    Loy Krathong and Yi Peng

    November 24, 2018 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    These past three days have been the Thai festivals ‘Loy Krathong’ and ‘Yi Peng’. Loy Krathong is a celebration that translates into ‘to float baskets’. The baskets (krathongs) are made out of thick slices of banana tree trunk, pieces of banana leaves, pretty flowers, and you stick incense and candles in it, then, once you’ve lit the candles and incense, you float them down the ping river, on the first full moon of the twelfth month (Thai lunar calendar). Make sure you make a wish when you float it! This year it was November 22. Yi peng is at the same time, but for yi peng you float lanterns into the sky. There was so many people in the main streets that you could barely move at all! If you’ve been to one of these festivals before, comment your experience!
