This picture is a perfect description of today: messy, unorganized with a relatively happy ending 🙈 19.01.19 Today we have been on the road from Chiang Mai - Chiang Rai - Chiang Khong. We were supposed to wake up at 7am, but didn’t manage to do so before 8am. We didn’t think it would be a problem with the bus tickets, but they were sold out (lazy as we are we didn’t book online) except for one later at 1pm. That said, we had to wait 3 hours in Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai which takes 4 hours. We then found out that the connecting bus to Chiang Khongs last departure is at 5 pm. With some luck and nice Thai people, we luckily managed to get into the bus at last minutes though it started driving while @m_rjam was still in the toilet. 🤦🏻♀️ The ride was pretty cool with an amazing view, and now we are safe and sound at our hostel in Chiang Khong, good night 🌙
Moments like these inspire my soul and leave it searching for more ▶️

It was a beautiful moment as we were walking and listening to our guide Galicias tell us about the history of the Street of the Dead when this beautiful group of young ladies asked, “can we take a picture with her?” Galicias translated and I happily obliged.
From the pic you would think we’d met before but we hadn’t. Maybe it was my outfit as we were all in track suits. Or maybe it was just them seeing a friendly face they’ve never seen before and felt comfortable and or excited enough to stop me and say hello.
The world may be big yet small at the same time. We may be of different races but love and kindness unites us all. Traveling the world is a beautiful thing!!!
Here's something that I really love about Venice: The way so many streets just end abruptly in water. This city is so much like a giant labyrinth – you can't just point yourself in one general direction and get to more or less where you're hoping to end up, because you'll get so turned around and confused from coming up against watery dead-ends and backtracking and zig-zagging that pretty soon you'll have no clue which way you're heading. ⠀
This would probably get annoying if I actually lived in the city and wanted to get anywhere fast, but as a visitor it feels quirky and charming and just underlines how incredibly unique Venice actually is. There aren't many cities where there's absolutely no danger of being hit by a car in the street, but constant danger of walking straight into a canal if you're not paying attention!
