Thailand's Hill Tribes....

In a weeks time one will be sat in Humberside International Airports departure lounge. Packing done and itinerary written! at least for a few of the days I will be away.
On my last visit to Thailand end 2012, when I was in Chiang Mai, I made a trip out of the city into the Hill Tribe countryside. One of the Hill Tribes I visited were the Padung Karen Tribe, made famous because of their neck rings. This visit, although predominately is a fact finding mission (to gain more ideas as to whether I could live permanently in Thailand) but also hopefully will take me to parts that will give me even more of an insight of all things Thai....

I have posted a couple of photos from my last trip showing the Padung Karen Hill Tribe, and some lovely young tribe children, who were more than happy to have their picture taken with me (for a few Baht's payment..of course).

The sight of the living accommodation these Tribes people have, would make some feel sorry for them, but everyone was happy, and to be fair, they have got more going for them than most of us (in my opinion) no money worries (they can live on very little money)  everyone is happy and smiling (unlike us Brits) they eat gorgeous food (we have to eat mostly boring English food). So maybe these people have got something money can't buy....and unless you really study these people, we probably don't realise how lucky they are....and what we are missing...

Ok, maybe the chewing gum didn't portray the typical Padung Karen Hill Tribe living....


Me and my new found friends....

Must get back to my packing...(yes I know, I said I am travelling light, however it still takes me weeks to make sure everything is sorted!).....
