Listening to the cow-bells in the distance, I realised how happy I was… the happiest I had been in a long time, after months of the same routine and office job.
Happy Birthday, Mum! What a place to wake up on your 50th.
We were headed to Mae Sariang, a small rural town that was surrounded by forests and mountains and inhabited by smiling locals.
Today we were climbing the hills on the route to Doi Inthanon, Thailand’s highest mountain, in all our three-wheeled glory.
Next stop: The Tuk Tuk Club HQ, in nearby Mae Wang. Around midday, we pulled up at a lovely hotel hidden behind shrubs and a natural pond, and sat with our new travel buddies for a welcome drink and lunch.
