Sunlight from the back of an airport shuttle during the warm season (ฤดูร้อน) in Chiang Mai. The light here is softer and people speak slower than they do in Bangkok, so even I can understand most of my daily conversations.
It’s easy to feel like I could stay forever. Chiang Mai reminds me of lazy afternoons, warm nights, a cold tumbler of whiskey on a rooftop with friends.
Of course, I don’t live there, and maybe the idea is more compelling than the reality. But if there’s one city that stays on my mind, pulling and pulling at me to come back and stay a weekend, a month, a summer — it’s this one.
Pumphouse Point. What an experience it was, everything about this place was so perfect. My only regret is not being able to stay longer.
Short post about it on the website. Link in the bio if you’re interested.
HAPPY EARTH DAY! 🌍
Spending today thinking about how precious our natural world is and how much we, as people, still can do to make a positive impact on its health. We’re all imperfect and have some adjusting to do to make a successful go of it, but cutting out plastics, shopping sustainably, eating flexitarian (or preferably vegetarian/vegan), seasonal diets and opting for public transportation are a few easy changes that have a huge impact. Also, give @ourplanet a watch – it’s amazing and really highlights human impact in a way we may or may not be exposed to in day-to-day life •
