I’m currently sat on the overnight train from Chiang Mai to Bangkok, reflecting on the week and my series of unfortunate events today. 20 minutes ago I managed to drop my phone on the bathroom floor in my hostel and smash the screen. I then managed to miss my train due to reading the arrival time as the departure time. Great job Emilie. So yeah, I had to buy a new ticket and run to the last train to Bangkok that left in a few minutes. Safe to say I’m a little flustered, and not entirely sure me and Thailand are getting along too well.
I’m not saying I don’t like Thailand, I honestly don’t think I’ve been here long enough to be able to decide that. However, this whole trip was so sudden and unplanned that my head was still very much in Bali when I got here. Anyone who loves Bali the way I do will understand when I say there’s no place really like it. I think I was expecting to love Thailand as much as I do Bali, and when I didn’t I was a little disappointed.
Regardless, I’ve done a whole load of fun things and actually really like Chiang Mai. So despite my series of unfortunate events today, and not being in awe of Thailand just yet, I’ve had a good time. I’ve included a few pictures from our trek in the jungle today, which was pretty amazing. I’ll be back later this week with more photos and a post rounding up what I’ve been up to.
