Today’s travel photo is of our favourite fruit shake cart in Chiang Mai, Thailand. For the two months that we were in Chiang Mai, we got a fruit shake (smoothie) from here nearly every night.

I know I’m still writing about Cambodia on the blog, but we’ve actually been living in Chiang Mai, Thailand for the past two months.

Today’s travel photo is of Wat Rong Khun (The White Temple) in Chiang Rai, Thailand. This is a modern temple, built in the late 90’s, but it is unlike any that I have seen in Thailand. The fact that it is completely white is only the start. Its somewhat unconventional artwork is what really makes… Read More

On our first visit to Bangkok, Thailand, we visited Wat Indraviharn completely by accident as we were brought here by the tuk tuk driver who scammed us into going to some tailor shops. Still, we ended up seeing some interesting spots, and I very much doubt that we would have visited Wat Indraviharn if we… Read More
