Secret Hot Springs and More Pai Adventures

I feel free!
There is no time the gates close, no plans, i can finally do what i want! πŸ™‚

Hang on… i could do that all along πŸ˜€
Well i guess being locked in the massage school after 21.00 was kind of restricting, and now it has to get out!

I rented a scooter and explored the Wilderness around Pai.
There are 2 Hot springs near Pai:
The pay-200baht-ones, and the Off-the-beaten-track-ones where you only pay 20Baht/person and 20B/bike

How to get there?
Drive on the Mae Hong Son road for 11km, enjoy the beauty of the landscape, and when you think you are too far, drive a little more πŸ˜‰
You find the Sign on your right side (see gallery), and then you will have to go through a “rollercoaster-ride”… many many very steep hills.
I was very happy to have a manual bike, and even that couldn’t do every hill with another person on the back πŸ˜€

But the Hot Springs are amazing, the only people there were the harvesting farmers, digging out garlic, salad and other vegetables.
maybe i will go again tomorrow πŸ˜€
On our way back we went to “Mor Pang Waterfall”, which is really cool because the water has polished the stones to water slides!
It’s so much fun!
If you are more into extreme stuff, and have a good aim, you can jump of the high boulder into the pool (it has one deep spot πŸ˜‰ )

This trip was just … just….WoW ! (i am just realizing that wow actually looks like one of these smiley’s (^_^) (T_T) O.o )

And the rest of the evening i just read the first book of the Panem trilogy, and i am almost done with the book πŸ˜€
Also i gave a massage and earned some pocket money…i feel good!!

The only thing i need now is a good party!
Then the rest will settle on its own!


I think i will look for the abandoned guest house soon, and maybe spend a few nights there!

So Long Ole
p.s. i hope you can hold out the freezing temperatures over there!
but perception of temperature is relative…and i have a 20 degree drop every night πŸ˜‰
p.p.s. i totally forgot about easter πŸ˜€



Goodbye ChiangMai, Hello Pai

So yeah, i spend 40 days in Chiang Mai!
Meditating, Massaging, Bone-cracking, Visa-Waiting, Face-rubbing and TokSen-ing (i have no idea how to describe this! Its like hammering a wooden stick on the muscle. Despite the sound of this, it is so relaxing everybody i treated fell asleep πŸ™‚ )

But now its enough, i moved on – to Pai!
And it is very beautiful! The first 2h here i was in awe, moving around with an open mouth and unable to concentrate on finding a place to eat,
then i stopped, but only because it was dark

The road from Chiang Mai to Pai has 762 curves, and i actually got a little sick …maybe it was the food i ate before
So i just drank a lot of water, to get rid of the feeling.
So much that i had to go to the toilet very bad for the second half of the drive πŸ˜€ at least i did not think about the curves anymore.

Now i am staying in a really nice place, that has cool bungalows, a pool, free breakfast and a circus school, so maybe i will start learning some firestuff πŸ™‚

Yeah so i am looking forward to bathing in the hot springs, because it gets really cold at night, i am freezing right now…what is this, i cannot wear shorts and tshirt at 10pm? 20degrees? COLD!!

I really like the vegetarian food here, i hope to pick up some nice recipes…maybe if you want i can make a recipe special πŸ™‚

Tipps for visa extension:
Chiang Mai immigration opens at 8am ( be there at 7.00-7.30 because you will wait very long.) and has a lunch break.
I was there at 8.30, and got to the counter at 15.30 :/
so bring time
There is a copyshop w/ picture possibility so don’t worry you just need your passport.


So long Ole
p.s. Answers to the postcard quiz

3) Every Answer was right πŸ˜›
