Mar 7, 2012 - Thailand - Day 58 - Chiang Mai to Thaton
Took a 11:30 am bus ride from Chiang Mai to Thaton. The road was very curvy as we went through the mountain ranges.

Just beside the White Elephant Bus Station is the minibus station situated. By minibus I started a 180 kilometres trip to the Northern part of Chiang Mai Province. The minibus took me to a town named Fang. There I have to change to a...Jump to full entry
Dec 11, 2009 - big trek...
for the first time...i'm lost for words. we've got the big trek coming up tomorrow, so I probably won't get a chance to email for a week. first day should be easy...it's only a boat ride, bus ride then lunch at hot springs. we're walking a little but it's a pretty easy first day. also the elephant ride on the fourth is REALLY exiting :) I've got millions of pictures already but still over 300 left! forgot to tell you all, Laos is officially famous for oreos. (this keyboard is retarded. i have to press down really hard. grr) we've only...Jump to full entry
