Colors of Chiang Mai..................





..............lots of stories later!



View from our suite across the rice paddies at the Four Seasons Resort & Spa.







Tomorrow the King of Thailand celebrates his 84th Birthday..........a huge celebration throughout the kingdom.





It's all just breathtaking.........I'm so looking forward to sharing my trip once home again.


Today, the thrill of riding elephants.....tomorrow we may be unable to walk!!!

  1. Lots of photos of the elephant ride, please! An iconic photo, for me, is the one of Jackie Kennedy riding on an elephant with her sister. It was the last word in glamour to this then-school girl.

  7. Memories! You are seeing Thailand differently than we did, but yet the same. Chiang Mai is a special place. How exciting to be there for the kings birthday, they seem to really love the king.
