After Chiang Mai, I decided to go to Pai together with another Dutch girl. Which meant: going with a bus on a road with 762 curves. Yes, 762. In a van with a sign with ‘don’t fart here’ in it (really random). I was really happy that I’m never sick in cars.
After my flight from Krabi, I arrived at my first destination in Northern Thailand: Chiang Mai. It was still pretty early when I arrived in my hostel that was, besides the man from the reception, completely empty.
After Krabi it was time for my first island in Thailand: Koh Lanta! I wanted to visit a less touristic island and Koh Lanta seemed like the perfect choice.
I didn´t really feel like flying again, so I had the great idea to take the bus from Bangkok to Krabi, which took 15 hours. After not sleeping in the bus, I arrived in Krabi with lots of stickers on my shirt. You got a sticker every time you had a different bus or van, and yes. In Thailand you never know in how many different buses you are gonna be in advance.

Since I was 14, I wanted to go on a backpacking adventure. At the age of fourteen I was not mature enough for it. After graduating and working, I finally decided to take a moment to travel the world! The first four weeks I am exploring Vietnam with my mom, the other six weeks I am planning on visiting Thailand, Laos and maybe Singapore. Continue reading
