Sawatdee Kaa!!

Sawatdee Kaa!! (hello in Thai) - My 12 day crash tour of Thailand was the eye opening journey i was hoping for. Bangkok was our base and cultural mecca of museums and palaces. While a 3 day trek into the jungle of Chang Mai with 2 friendly guides, a sling shot, elephant ride and bamboo raft down the river made for more of a non stop adventure.

After all that walking in the north, we changed for a 4 day coastal bungalow retreat at Ko Chang with 2 days of Scuba diving.

Not even 24 hours in Australia, and i'm missing my bungalow by the beach. The trek was the overall highlight for me as we were housed and fed by the beautiful hill tribe villagers. Their hospitality was warm and the food was nothing short of yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!
