We only have a handful of days left in Chiang Mai, and I can say with utmost certainty that I’m uncertain of how I feel about this place. This little (but also kind of big?) city gets endless praise for endless things, largely based around its welcoming nature toward expats. But after peeling back that layer, I find myself wondering what started it all, if not the elephants and temples, which honestly take up no more than a relaxing week. If you’re a person who’s after some heavy culture shock, spending a month, or god forbid months, is not recommended by me. I’ve had a good time in Thailand, but a major source of my contentment fell into the hands of countless books, random hobby’s, and the best coffee shop in town, which happened to be Starbucks, and that makes me sad. If you think Chiang Mai has good coffee within its absolutely booming cafe culture, I urge you to spend a day in quite literally any other city, and have your mind blown by a cup that has less than 90% milk, haha. So yeah, I wasn’t too stoked about being here, but that’s part of the game. I definitely didn’t hate it, as it gave me a good environment to get a lot of things done, and I appreciate it for that. Our day with the elephants was incredible, and... well... yeah. I’m excited to get back to Asia, and even Thailand, to explore more of what it has to offer, because I know we barely scratched the surface. I think I did a bad job of following my own advice, and came here with expectations. I’ve explored vast miles of this city on foot, and while certain parts were interesting and exciting to shoot, the majority wasn’t for me. Keep experiencing the world; keep traveling. They’re not all gonna be winners🤙🏻
Gick runt planlöst i sammanlagt två timmar med svintung ryggsäck med kamera och dator i. Kan vara min favoritsysselsättning ändå.
