So this December we ditched the van and boarded a plan and headed to Thailand – how lucky were we? Very different from our usual European climbing adventures we grabbed life by the balls and went all out on a trip of a life time. We had pre planned the locations and pre booked connecting flights and accommodation but other than that we were going with what grabbed our attention while we were there. Our first location was Chiang Mai, after an 11 hr flight to Bangkok and another 2 hour flight to Chiang Mai we arrived blurry eyed yet full of excitement. Once rested we ventured into old town Chiang Mai where we were staying and it was just amazing, full of hustle and bustle, chanting temples, colourful markets, endless food stalls all in one big tuk tuk frenzy that left us wanting to explore absolutely everything!
