This is a feeling I know far too well.
A couple of days after arriving in Melbourne I got the flu. Or I think it was the flu, but being in Bali it could have been Dengue fever which would have sounded far more exotic.
I was so sick and staying in an Airbnb room. After 3 months of hostels, this sounded like a fantastic idea. I’d get a routine, some normality, a wardrobe to hang my clothes in…
But I was stuck in my sick bed, and homesickness came rushing in like a tidal wave.
ALL I wanted was to just go home.
Not only does this northern Thai city have beautiful mountains and lovely locals, but Chiang Mai is also a paradise for vegan food!
I spent the first 2 months of this year living and working in wonderful Chiang Mai. It’s made a name for itself in recent years as a digital nomad hub and has a large expat community. And the great thing about this? So many incredible places to find vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, raw options- I mean, you can even find a Sunday dinner in the middle of the old city if you wanted!
Chiang Mai has become a hub of remote workers, freelancers and online entrepreneurs over the past couple of years. With the super low cost of living, amazing wifi everywhere and the beautiful Thai culture, why wouldn’t you want to spend time here!
At the end of December last year my flight touched down in the beautiful northern Thai city.
With 10 days of accommodation booked and no plans for after that, the Chiang Mai digital nomad experiment began!
So I’m a little late to the party, we’re already 13 days into 2019, but better late than never right?
Right now I’m in Chiang Mai Thailand. Whilst it was tempting to stay back home in the UK for New Year’s Eve, I knew 2019 needed to start in a new place, with a brand new perspective.
I know we’re almost halfway through November but I just felt inspired to share some things from the past month (mostly October!) that have added value to my life. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired too!
I know this is a vegan and travel blog but I’m gonna throw some lifestyle and personal development stuff in the mix too. Why not eh?
