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.
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! 🙂
