Hello! It’s been a while since I’ve updated this, things have been so busy!

I decided to head back to Chiang Mai a day earlier than planned to catch Songkran. I’m so glad I did, it was absolutely brilliant!

The welcome I received was great, they provide towels, good WiFi (even in the dorms) and was really clean.

After waiting in the station for 3 hrs I was on my way!
