Leaving Thailand

It’s just a few days left before we’re about to leave Thailand and start our Myanmar adventure. Looking forward to some chilly days we take a bus to Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. We just passed this town the last time we’ve been here. Now we want to stay for some days to enjoy the…


Rak Tamachat

Instead of going to the Mindfulness Project (link), the main reason why we’ve been coming back to Thailand, we’re on our way to Rak Tamachat (link) a permaculture farm near Sikhio. Because of a misunderstanding with the Mindfulness Project we had to search for an alternative and came up with Rak Tamachat. On the map…


Back in Thailand – Off the beaten tracks

Sometimes things don’t work out like expected. The two days stopover in Kuala Lumpur after coming from Australia was planned to be for organizing our Indian Visa, but unfortunately there was no way of getting more than just a 30 days stay permission, which we can also apply using e-visa. Quite disappointing. After some more…


Chiang Rai – Last days in Thailand

The world is small. Sitting in the streets of Chiang Rai Robert, a well-known guy from our hometown in Germany is passing by. It’s just fortune. He is travelling together with his girlfriend Anka and arrived in Chiang Rai the same day we did. We spend a nice evening together talking about our experiences while…


Meditation in a forest monastery (Wat Tam Wua)

Slowing down in Pai

After three days of meditation in Pa Pae we are on our way to Pai, a nice small town in the mountain area of northern Thailand. We decide to hitchhike and it takes just around twenty minutes and a nice Thai couple is picking us up on the road coming from Chiang Mai. Looking for…


Pa Pae Meditation Retreat

According to our plan to explore the north of Thailand we take the train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. The train ride is about 13 hours and we use the time for more detailed planning. That’s how we get to know about Pa Pae Meditation Retreat. Pa Pae is a small village located between Chiang…


BIG BANGkok

How different places can be….Coming from India to Thailand feels like a change. We are impressed by cleanliness and sense for detail. Traffic seems relaxed and our first accommodation welcomes us with luxury in comparison to most of our guesthouses and lodges the last months. We need to smile hearing people talking about Bangkok’s bad…


Arrived in Bangkok, Thailand

Ok, now we arrived in Bangkok, Thailand. It is like a chapter of our journey is over with leaving India. Thank you, you amazing country, we will come back! There is so much left to explore… We had a nice flight from Kolkata here. We will stay here for some days to explore this huge…
