The Clips and Trips blog was put together in preparation for our leaving the U.S. on an indefinite world travel adventure which started around August of 2009 and returned us home in December of 2012. If you want to see where it all began, read our mission statement from before we left.

Chiang Mai Attractions, Thailand

One of the biggest attractions in Chiang Mai is the zipline. We were attached to cables high in the jungle and cruised our way down, going from treetop to treetop.

We also went to an Elephant Camp in Chiang Mai. We saw how the elephants bathed, watched them play soccer with one another, paint pictures, massage their trainers, and play the harmonica.

The landscape portrait was later sold for 6000 baht (roughly $180).

Then, there were the monkeys... Chiang Mai monkeys can exercise, identify numerals, and ride tricycles.

  2. Hi Guys,
    It looks like you are doing some fun stuff out there! It seems like sooo long since I left Thailand and we did a switcheroo! It's Thanksgiving week and I am thinking about you two. Have some mystery meat and pretend it is turkey! Pam, we all miss you at Miraloma- seriously. Hope you two are doing well. xoxoxo Susan

  3. Wow!!! I'm uber jealous! You guys look extremely happy and seem to enjoy your trip a bit too much. I'd like to have you back here so you can hear me whine in person.

    I'm so glad you're having a blast! I'm sure you're carrying one of those elephant drawn landscape portraits around town =)

    Food looks delicious as always! I'd like to order some of those yummy dishes for breakfart!

    Great snaps of the sunset!

    Love you!
