Pigeons in Chiang Mai – The Fix for Family Phobias!

20120402-103647.jpg

I hate birds.

They are scary. They have claws. They have sharp beaks. They don’t share.

Hate them.

The girls aren’t big fans either but Jono thinks when he waves his arms he controls them!

So imagine our suprise when a simple outing feeding the fish in Chiang Mai lead to a load of bird interraction!

We wandered to a lake on a mission to feed the fish. You can buy big bags of fish food from a stallholder for only 10 baht. That’s about 33 cents Australian – BARGAIN!! Continue reading

Cooking Class at Baan Thai Cooking School in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

When we were in Chiang Mai the girls and Gert decided to take a Baan Thai cooking class.  Well I kinda sent the girls with Gert for the following reasons:

  1. I can’t cook at home – Nothing has changed in Asia!!
  2. I was too lazy to spend the day standing up after we had just had our one day tour adventure the day before!
  3. Gert isn’t always a “do things by yourself” kind of guy and I knew he really wanted to go!!

So off they toddled to be Thai cooking masters!

The bus picked them up around 9.45am.  Actually the open backed pickup packed with other would-be chefs picked them up!!  They bundled themselves in and Jono and I Continue reading

Part 2 – Chiang Mai one day tour – Elephants, white water rafting, hill tribes, butterflies and waterfalls!

Here’s part 2 of our awesome one day tour in Chiang Mai.  You can read about Part 1 here.  And a disclaimer….there are photos of elephants doing poop – giant poop!!

Anyway……

After we left the Karen Hill Tribe, our guide informed us that we would have about 40 minutes drive to get to the elephants.  We were pretty excited about the elephants, not so excited about that long drive in the back of a ute with seats (but no seatbelts!!)

We set off at break-neck speed through the traffic.  I secretly marvelled at how calmly we take this now.

After a while there was some gravel on the road and we started to get blasted with the little bits of dirt.  Ouch!! Continue reading

Chiang Mai one day tour – Elephants, white water rafting, hill tribes, butterflies and waterfalls!

We had a great time on our one day tour in Chiang Mail.  We tend to cram a lot into one day and then take a break for a day or so and this day was no exception!

We dragged ourselves up early (for us) to have breakfast at 7.30am.  We wanted to eat before we set off on our tour – we’ve learned food can be optional in Thailand and we love to eat!

Right on 8.15am our pickup arrived to take us on our tour.  We weren’t sure if we had booked a private tour or one with other people.  It soon turned out that Continue reading
