To catch the sunrise.

All the time we keep on reminding ourselves that we need to slow down and the next place will be the one to stay longer, do nothing and rest. And then we do it again – after few days in Chiang Mai we rented a car to climb a long winding road to one mountain, […]

Poo Paper

There is a place in Chiang Mai, where you can make paper from elephantsโ€™ poo, no artificial flavors added. A great lesson on ecology – we go though every station where we learn why elephant poo is a great material for paper production: how to clean it with no chemicals, make paper goo, dye it […]

Chiang Rai

We decided to go to Chiang Rai for one day and it was for two reasons. First was Baan Dam or The Black House. In fact it is not only a house but a whole complex, a kind of artistic installation by a Thai artist – Thawan Duchanee. Mr Thawan was a painter, scluptor and […]

At the end of the world

Northern Thailand seems to be very romantic at this time of the year but in fact it is not. Magical mist lingering the nearby mountains are nothing more than the smog, which is a result of farmers burning grass on their fields before new growing season. Every day I wake up with sore throat and […]

Crisises when travelling

Perhaps we have been for too long in Thailand now or perhaps we have been travelling for too long because me and Wojtek we started to notice crisises. Not the big dramas but rather the weariness that creeps upon you and kills your endurance and motivation needed to face every day. In fact I do […]

Bangkok part 1

Of all the big cities we visited so far, I felt best in Bangkok. Not as chaotic as Kuala Lumpur ot sterile as Singapore. I like the way the river is integrated into the city (although I like less the trash in it). Our first visit was short, as we were running out of 30-day […]

Similan Islands and Sam Roi Yot

After leaving the Devil’s den of Phuket we moved on to its extension on continental Thailand – Khao Lak. It is more of Polish Jurata than Wladyslawowo but is a stall fashion show and a bazaar. Still Khao Lak is the starting point to visit Similan Islands – another Sea National Park and supposedly Thailand’s […]

His Majesty Thailand

I do not know what we thought when planning our trip but it looks like we will be in Thailand at the peak of the tourist season. It means huge crowds, double prices and potentially trouble finding a place to sleep. So we started to look for a quiet and not-so-touristy place. Far from party […]
