Kirsty Long Neck

Are you having fun playing along with me?

Yes, we are in Chiang Mai 

 our 4th stop of the trip

 Chiang Mai is in Northern Thailand

we stay at a resort on the mountain that has a natural water falls

it has 16 rooms at this resort but we are the ONE and ONLY guest here this week, so we have the resort all to ourself, isn't it cool?

the view from our balcony

we had a private driver (provided by the resort) to drive us around for sightseeing on our first day here, we went to see the rice field

the siam handicraft center

and Karen Long Neck (a Tibeto-Burman ethnic minority of Burma, the women known for wearing the brass neck coils)


please meet .... Kirsty long neck

we also visited Tad Mok Falls, 10 minutes away from the resort

and then back to the hotel spa, ready for a massage

all that was only day one in Chiang Mai ...... .... .......

ahhh...... can life be any better?


Where are we going next?

 you'll love this one

come on come on.....

I know you have the answer!!!!!


and of course I have something crafty to share

a card pulled out from my blogspot drawer 

maybe you'll find a clue or two?

Ohh Kirsty, you are having a great time out!!. Especially when you have the whole resort for yourself :). I would love to take you flea marketing in KL, sometime. You'll have to plan to spend a Sunday with me (the best treasures are on Sundays, and less traders on Saturdays). So, hope you'll make it here one day :). Looks like you're visiting Paris, next!. Exciting!!. HUGS.
