Happy Sunday everyone!
I’ve spent most of this week working on blog posts and freelance articles, building a website for a friend, editing videos and working out what my plans are to expand this site. I’ve been more productive than I’ve been in months!
It’s amazing how much work a digital nomad can get done in Chiang Mai. I totally get why it’s the number one place in the world to work online from. It’s unbelievably cheap, full of great cafes and co-working spaces with killer wifi, and there are so many other nomads to network with. I’ve met some great new friends and have learned a lot about building a location-independent business.
But as always, I needed to dedicate at least some time to adventure, because, you know, that’s the point of it all! On Thursday, I headed to Chiang Rai, complete with a visit to the Golden Triangle, the northernmost point in Thailand, and the epic White Temple, one of my new favorite sights in the world. I even popped over on a boat to Laos for 20 minutes, just to say “hi” to another of my favorite countries……and drink a Beerlao.
And yesterday I checked out the awesome Elephant Nature Park. This place rescues and rehabilitates elephants that have been abused and mistreated in tourist camps and illegal logging activities. It’s such a positive and ethical way to interact with these gentle giants in Thailand, and I highly recommend it if you’re going to Chiang Mai.
I’m actually a bit sad to leave this great city behind on Tuesday, but I’m also really pumped to see my 27th country – Vietnam! Noodle soup, here I come.
Have a fantastic week everyone!
