Chiang Mai, Thailand

Did someone say, sun? Did someone say, mountains? Did someone say, warmth? Umm, yes please!! 🙂

Events/Highlights:
Local tracks
Thai fighting class, Lady Boy show, Sticky waterfalls (twice),


Jai Thep Music Festival – A weekend of beautiful music, positive vibes, spiritual connection and lots of laughs.


Visits to all the temples – including an amazing sunrise overlooking the city from Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. MAGICAL!


Learning the art of side tripping – and realizing it is a lot of work!
Getting to walk amongst the elephants – was one of the best experiences of my life. What brilliant/intelligent creatures they are. To be able to watch them roam freely is something I won’t soon forget.

Things I enjoyed:

  • The sunny weather basically every day
  • The warmth
  • Having so many delicious food options so close to home
  • How cheap everything was
  • The 15 dollar massages (Had 4 full body massages and don’t feel bad about any of them)
  • My small but cozy and modern apartment
  • The sunset view from my apartment
  • The mountains on the horizon
  • Ashley coming to visit!
  • The vegan-friendly options
  • Walking the streets and seeing all of the unique storefronts and street art.

Things I struggled with:

  • Going into the wonderful workspace that we were provided. Working nights made it hard to want to leave to walk home at 2-3am when I finished.
  • Not spending too much money. Just because it was cheaper doesn’t mean you can buy more things. Kind of defeats the purpose.
  • Food poisoning – I don’t wish this on my worst enemy. NEVER AGAIN!!

Thanks for STAWPIN’! 🙂
