AWAY: Summer travels day 35, Chiang Mai (part 5). Our guide, who was also a bit of a standup comic - “Thai always put sugar; that’s why we so sweet” - would demonstrate each step, then we would do it ourselves. We made so many dishes I lost count - a coconut milk soup, pad Thai, a curry dish (with shrimp for me), a vegetable dish ... It was quite a spread by the end, and we got to enjoy our huge meal while watching the sun set in the idyllic country setting. #ChiangMai #Thailand #Asia #SoloTravel #Cooking #Sunset #Farm #Night #Landscape #Waterfront #Relaxing #Food #Foodie #FoodPorn #Travel #Traveling #Instatravel #Travelgram #TravelPhotography #Wanderlust #NoFilter

AWAY: Summer travels day 35, Chiang Mai (part 4). My day post temple was all about food. I stopped for lunch at a little leave-your-shoes-at-the-door place called Cooking Love, where they provided me free bottled water and watermelon. Then I rested up at the hotel for a while before heading out for my early evening cooking class. I was picked up at the hotel, and our little group of seven got a quick tour of a local market, where the guide demonstrated typical ingredients in Thai cooking. Then we continued to the outdoor cooking school set in an organic farm. Our guide taught us about rice-making and then got us set up to get cooking. #ChiangMai #Thailand #Asia #SoloTravel #Market #Cooking #Farm #Nature #Landscape #Food #Foodie #FoodPorn #Travel #Traveling #Instatravel #Travelgram #TravelPhotography #Wanderlust #NoFilter

AWAY: Summer travels day 35, Chiang Mai (part 3). Aside from the temple itself, the Doi Suthep site offers gorgeous views over the city and a charming little garden full of colorful flowers and whimsical bird statues. The view of the city wasn’t clear because of the cloud cover, but I was loving the mist over the jungle. #ChiangMai #Thailand #Asia #SoloTravel #Temple #Buddhism #Garden #Flowers #Rose #Orchid #Nature #View #Landscape #Sky #SkyPorn #Travel #Traveling #Instatravel #Travelgram #TravelPhotography #Wanderlust #NoFilter

AWAY: Summer travels day 35, Chiang Mai (part 2). The Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep temple is striking, not just because it’s high above the city, but also because of all. that. gold. It also still seems to be a genuine place of worship rather than just a beautiful building tourists visit for the architecture and history. There were a number of locals up there praying. #ChiangMai #Thailand #Asia #SoloTravel #Temple #Buddhism #Gold #Architecture #Travel #Traveling #Instatravel #Travelgram #TravelPhotography #Wanderlust #NoFilter

AWAY: Summer travels day 35, Chiang Mai (part 1). I started my day by hopping on an open-back tuk tuk and heading to the Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep temple. It’s up a mountain outside the city center and is considered a must-see in Chiang Mai. My driver stopped at a lookout on the way, then it was up the 300 or so steps to the temple. #ChiangMai #Thailand #Asia #SoloTravel #TukTuk #Temple #Buddhism #Dog #Nature #View #Landscape #Cityscape #Sky #SkyPorn #Clouds #CloudPorn #Architecture #Travel #Traveling #Instatravel #Travelgram #TravelPhotography #Wanderlust #NoFilter

AWAY: Summer travels day 34, Chiang Mai (part 2). I spent my afternoon and early evening snacking and shopping at the enormous Sunday market in the old city. Several streets are closed to traffic and people sell some genuine crafts, not just the cheap souvenirs. After all the walking, I took a seat at one of the reclining chairs on the street for a 30-minute massage that cost me $3. I love Thailand. #ChiangMai #Thailand #Asia #SoloTravel #Market #StreetMarket #Night #Relaxing #Travel #Traveling #Instatravel #Travelgram #TravelPhotography #Wanderlust #NoFilter #NoEdit

AWAY: Summer travels day 34, Chiang Mai (part 1). I started day 2 in Chiang Mai with a manicure and pedicure and a Thai massage. (My mission in Thailand is to take it slow.) Then I explored a couple nearby temples. #ChiangMai #Thailand #Asia #SoloTravel #Temple #Buddhism #StreetArt #Relaxing #Architecture #Travel #Traveling #Instatravel #Travelgram #TravelPhotography #Wanderlust #NoFilter
