In Chiang Mai, Thailand, Uber rides cost between $1-2. That was amazing. The ride to the airport was a flat rate of 150THB (about $4.25USD). It’s very difficult to walk on the street there because the sidewalks are small and run down. Crossing the street is an adventure too. There’s a lot of traffic.

This was the 2nd time I’ve ever rode an ATV. Before they started the ATV tour, our group of 4 was asked “Have any of you ever ridden an ATV before?” Naturally, I said “I ride ATV’s all the time.” This may have played a role in how I got injured during the tour.

I enjoy a good challenge, but I wouldn’t do this again. I found a tour called the Doi Lom Challenge through chiangmaibicycle.com and thought very highly of my fitness level. BTW, I only use bicycles while on vacation. Continue reading “Chiang Mai 32km Bike Ride: The Doi Lom Challenge”

While in Sydney, I had to meet a koala and a kangaroo. I haven’t interacted with many live animals before, but I had to do this since they’re not as easily accessible in my part of the world. Featherdale Wildlife Park lets you get close enough to interact with the animals!
From Katoomba Station it is roughly a 30-minute walk to the Blue Mountains. Once you get there, it’s all mountains, hiking trails and tourists.

To get to Katoomba from Sydney, you’ll need to start your journey at Central Station. There, you’ll find the Katoomba line that will get you there in about two hours for $5.60 AUD. This is a great deal considering the distance. The seats were clean/comfortable and the trains cars were air conditioned. You’ll also find that there are several train cars that are classified as “Quiet Carriages.” These are great because you are supposed to keep your voice down and stay quiet. Excellent for the traveler looking for a restful journey. Continue reading “From Sydney to Katoomba by Train”
