Finally back in Pai

Sunset from my bungalow in Pai

After a short stop in Bangkok it was time to go back to Pai. Got an online ticket and left early with the #3 bus to Mo Chit Bus Station. If you want good food – you have to get out of the station where the little restaurants are. If you are Vegetarian – you are pretty much screwed since there are not many options. Guess a beer and some chips will do for today!

Had some time to kill and what better way than with a beer or two? Did meet this nice gentleman at the little shop. So we had the beer together and it was not so boring 🙂

My VIP bus
Never happened before: They sold me a VIP bus ticket and it was a 2 – 2 seater configuration on top. Only in the lower part of the bus was a 1 – 2 seat configuration.

The local mini bus to Pai
We did arrive 30 minutes before the first mini bus to Pai. Enough time to get a ticket and a good seat.

The entrance of the cave
The cave entrance where you start your Bamboo raft trip. Than you walk inside up and down and here and there. Another short raft ride brings you to coffin cave and then they take you back again.

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
