We have reached a new Travel Milestone! 700 Days of Travel!

Our trip of a life time has turned into a new found passion of ours and has given us many new experiences that we’d never of had if we didn’t go travelling.

So on our 700th day of travel we left the very lazy, I mean laid back Laos and flew to the fast developing Thailand – Chiang Mai to be precise.

For the first time in ages we took a flight, a luxury way of travelling don’t you know?! It took only 1 hour and 10 minutes, meaning we arrived in our destination not feeling tired and grumpy, instead excited about being back in a city we love and grateful we got the chance to come back for a 2nd visit. It definitely beats a 17 hour bus journey!

We love it here in Chiang Mai and plan to stay a while. As a vegan, general food lover and as travel bloggers, it has everything we want. From vegetarian restaurants aplenty to quirky independent coffee shops with great Wi-Fi, loads of cool venues, BJJ for Stu and laughter yoga for me, it’s perfect for us!

As I said, we want to stay a while, which means needing to find decent accommodation that doesn’t cost the earth and is appealing enough for us to want to stay in and work (rather than wanting to escape a bed bug ridden hell hole to feel like there are still nice things in the world).

So first night in Chiang Mai we thought we’d treat ourselves to a hotel with a pool and then get on the search for the perfect room the following morning.

Hmmm… As it turned out, Hotel with a pool= Benidorm. Needless to say, we did only spend one night there and left after swimming a few laps in the pool before the lobsters had finished their buffet breakfasts…

We hired our old scooter from the hotel with a pool, then drove off to the hotel we stayed in the last time we were in Chiang Mai to see what they had. Fortunately they had big rooms available, with a double bed, fridge, TV (BBC World News, check) and attached bathroom with hot water and a western loo. We took this super cool room for a good weekly rate.

Sorted. So now we need to get down to work on the blog(s).

We plan for exciting things to happen for Am I Nearly There Yet? in Chiang Mai, plus a few new projects we’re working on. Watch this space! 🙂
