A chilled out tubing alternative
A new tubing place has opened up in Chiang Mai called Chiang Mai Tubing and Beach Club. It also has the only beach in Chiang Mai to play some volleyball or frisbee.

This boat looks so amazing! You're so lucky to have gotten a chance to ride and play around with it! This is definitely something some people would like to construct for fun. Great post!

Great Blog- Down to Earth
I found it was hard to find information on first hand travel to Myanmar and your blog filled the bill.Since all your day to day impressions were current it will really help in my future visit,especially the use of small denominations for exchange(its nice to know you need crisp dollars to pay the tax at the airport).I had a lot of doubts about this trip but your descriptions have really felt I made the right decision for a visit to Myanmar.Thanks

Crikey! that leg-rowing looks to be a bit of an art. Great workout for the inner thighs I'd imagine. Luv the water views from the Sky Lake hotel but I'm guessing room service was not availabile. Another enjoyable read - Thank you!

Once again, a very interesting (and amusing) insight to another culture. I look forward to your impressions of Heho. All the the best Jill

.............just when you thought it was safe
I have so enjoyed being a part of your journey. Such a great trip, terrific pics and a commentary that really made it interesting, taking me to places and people whose lifestyles were so different to my own. I really felt for you and Joan in this last entry as the whole thing was so unnecessary and caused distress, discomfort and distrust of a system screwed up. Great to have you home safely. As DQ passed on, in protest, Vodka will never pass my lips again. regards Jill

Memories - Another Song Title
Hi Guys, sorry I didn't get to wish you a good trip but by the sound of it so far you're having a great time. Reading your blog sure bought back memories of my trip in the 70's - it must be facinating to see the difference. Anyway keep up the work with your enteries Neil - I come to work and first thing I do is check to see if you've written. Love to you both Lorna

Glad you made it safely and are enjoying yourselves. Just finished a round of golf and got my first (and possibly last) eagle. It was a short par 4 (240 yards) and I drove to about 2m from the pin then knocked it in.

Great Life
Boy you lead an interesting life Neil. Can't wait to hear all about it when you get back - especially the teaching gig. Lorna

Have you guys missed me! I was thinking I hadn't heard anything for a while so went into your blog and found 3 new items. For some reason I didn't get a notification like I'd gotten every other time so hadn't been keeping up with the trip. Now the big news you had to say was that you'd finished your trip. When do you get home? I won't comment on the final leg of the journey as I hope to catch up with you both in person soon but it certainly sounds magical. Tell me when to start cooking Neil. Lorna

spitting is a kind of habit in most uneducated ,poor society world like China and part of south asia. the spitting habit is now being banned in China and country like singapore will incur big big fine.

You did well Neil. I would have gone into withdrawal if you hadn't got everything going again. It's the first thing I do when I get to work - go into the emails to see if you've posted anything else. Absolutely breathtaking scenery but Joanie, forget holding hands I'd have been clinging to his back like a limpet on that trail and Neil - I'll start cooking the minute the wheels hit the tarmac.
29th October 2007

Oh Noooo!
Don´t worry, Lorna, I´m looking at alternatives to get the ´blog ship´ rolling again. Hopefully you won´t have to wait till we get home, so watch that screen. Mind you, I do tell a better story over one of your home cooked meals!
29th October 2007

Oh Noooo!
Oh Noooo Neil, how could you do that to me. I've been hanging by my toenails waiting for you to get to Machu Picchu so I could hear every little detail and see the pics. Now I'm going to have to wait until you get home. You don't want to cut the holiday short do you?
