Memories from Thailand, 2014 (Part 1)

Hello readers.

When I started this blog  3 years ago,  I wanted to share some fun time I experienced. Somehow I never shared this travel in Thailand I did with  my husband . It was February 2014 and  It was another exciting adventure for us . And a special one as it was also our  first trip to Asia.

As usual I will show you some photos and tell you a bit about this trip. Traveling from VANCOUVER  to Thailand with a connecting flight in Seoul was a long journey. At the  Seoul Incheon airport ,  we saw a parade of Royal family.

We arrived in Chiang Mai in the evening. Our friend Fred was waiting for us. We were going to spend the week with him as he lives there and know very well  the country.

After a good night of sleep, we were woken up with a bird song.  We spent the first day walking in the city, visiting beautiful temples . The weather was just perfect and of course much warmer than what we have in Vancouver in February ( and no rain).

We  went to the Sunday night market where I bought some pants as souvenirs. There were lots of products we did not know and it was fun to try to figure out what it was.

If you don’t want to walk you can always travel by tuk-tuk. They are inexpensive .

Some food we ate that day ;

Of course, we would see monks everywhere. They are easily recognizable with their orange clothing.

It was a full first day. We were happy to discover a new country and we were lucky to have Fred to answer our questions. The story will continues on my next post.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Fascinating.
    It looks like the escorts for the royal family wear fake beards??

    The temple is beautiful.

    The older buildings look so beautiful. I wish they would continue to build in the old style… the one photo with the truck looks like a poor alley in America.

    I read somewhere (maybe you wrote this) that the youth of the country often serve a temporary time as monks in the monastery, learning what there is to learn there.

    Great shots!

  2. Bonsoir France,
    Je reviens donc visiter ton blog et les tes intéressants récits de voyages accompagnés de photos bien sûr. Je commence par ton voyage en Thaïlande en 2014, part 1. Très intéressant comme toujours!
    Je vais continuer ma lecture ce soir mais j’avais hâte de te dire que tout fonctionne bien: je me suis inscrite, ton site s’ouvre bien et je peux facilement te mettre des commentaires.
    Bonne soirée France!
