... round the board' darts then as we were all falling to sleep we headed back for a nap before going back out.......but the nap turned into a sleep and too shattered to head out we all had an early night after our cycling adventure!
Thursday 25 June...
We had a lazy start then leaving Lynz to chill for the day after she opted out of the 'moped trip' Gra and I hired a moped and set off on the 17km loop of Pai stopping at various view points along the way ...
... day there, my transport wasn't leaving until 6pm, so we rented a moped. I was still not too keen on driving one, so was passenger and navigator instead. We went further afield this time on an 18km loop out to the Pai Canyon, the Memorial Bridge and Wat Pra Tat Mae Yen (Temple on the Hill).

We stopped halfway through at the jungle 7/11 which was just a hut with a cool box! We got into the village at about 6. We got a beer and a shower from a tap and got went for a wander around the village. ...
Took an early bus to Chang Mai, which took 7 hours. Spent the remainder of the afternoon wondering around and finding some amazing Thai food! At 6pm I went with a South African girl from the hostel, to one of the best yoga classes I have been to. Felt so good to finally get some exercise ...
