Crouch Adventures – culturally aware and interactive

Today we are leaving Chiang Rai and heading as far north as we can within Thailand to the border with Laos.  We will stay overnight in Chiang Kong and tomorrow catch the slow boat for two days to Luang Prabang in Laos.  With three young children anything could happen –  we are hoping that the excitement of the boat experience has a pacifying effect but at present pizza in Chiang Mai has only really been a successful pacifier so far! Flying from Chiang Mai was an option but now it is time to really go out of our comfort zone…

I hope you enjoy these few photos of reflections collected along the way since we left Pattaya 10 days ago.

We love Khow Soi, but think we'll stick to the mushrooms!
