Ziplining in Chiang Mai

THAILAND | Saturday, 11 February 2012 | Views [383]

My tour is almost over. We arrived back in Bangkok this morning around 8am after the most uncomfortable 15 hour train ride. My body picked the most inoportune time to get sick!

Although our stay in Chiang Mai was short, we were able to cram togeether a lot of activities. Before heading to our cooking class, which we booked for that night, the girls were in dire need of some pampering, so off we headed to a spa. Here I recieve the most amazing foot massage, especially after walking, and travelling for 28 days.

At 4:00pm that night we were picked up by the cooking school and headed to the market to get a few ingredients for our meal. I had chosen to make pad Thai, coconut chicken soup, red curry and Tarro in Coconut milk fro desert. Unfortunately, I missed the soup lesson, as this was when I began feeling sick. Thankfully, I began to feel better by the 3rd course and was able to fully participate in the lesson again.

The food was delicious! I can't wait to come home and make some REAL Pad Thai. I didn't eat to much because I didn't wish to make my self feel sicker. That night I opted to stay in and get some rest instead of visiting the night markets with the rest of the group, especially with a busy morning of zipling the next day. It wasn't like I really needed to buy anything else at this point anyways lol!

Still feeling a little sick, but nothing bad, we headed out to the Chiang Mai zipline camp, approx. 1 hours outisde of Chiang Mai. After a quick lesson, we began zip lining, Our course included 27 platforms, and the longest line was 400m. The experience was unbelievable! Zipping through the tree tops, over rapids, through valleys. The course took only 1.5 hours to get through and we were able to twirl and flip upside down when flkying through the trees.

Late that afternoon we boarded our night train to Bangkok. Our cabin was next to a cabin filled the the chattiest monks you could imagine. Today, I am just taking it easy, just sleeping and hoping that my stomach will feel better for tonights goodbye dinner and party. Tomorrow I will head back to my original hostel to spend one night before catching my flight to Phuket. I'm looking forward to spending two days at Patong BEach, relaxing before begining my volunteer program.
