In the second part of the motorbike road trip we went from Chiang Dao to Mae Hong Son. We had no plans, let the trip flow by itself, and the trip took us to some off the beaten path places: Huai Nam Dang National Park and Soppong, which has a huge cave with geological formations.
Yes, a round the world trip with carry on luggage only is possible. I give you my packing list including feedback on which items were useful and which ones were not. You will also find general tips to pack light and how I managed the clothes as I traveled in different weather conditions.
One of the many things I like about travel is that it takes you out of your comfort zone. After a year traveling alone I traveled again with someone else, and in a way I had never done before: a motorbike road trip. This is the first part in which we visited Phrao and Chiang Dao, two lesser known villages with stunning scenery located north of Chiang Mai.
San Pedro de Atacama left me speechless. While the village has nothing special, the surrounding landscapes are unreal, breathtaking, mind blowing. Mountains and volcanoes, lakes and salt flats, geysers and thermal water, red stones and white valleys compose a region which seems taken from another planet.
I’m on the road again! This time, in northern Thailand, where I spent a few days in a Lahu village (a hill tribe village) near Chiang Mai. Try to imagine it: stilt houses made of wood and bamboo, beautiful lush green mountains, chickens and pigs around the streets, an interesting culture and friendly people. How is it to live there?
