1 November 2014

First of many...
Took a drive on a tuktuk from the night market to the hotel, feeling like in an action movie. Those drivers are crazy, I'm not even sure they know right from left! A wild ride it was!
Saturday night market. Lots of smells, tastes, crowd of adventurous people who are not afraid to try.. We tried: Squid, vegtable egroll, potato meat egroll, banan rotti, sticky rice with mango and coconut water from a real coconut!
Early evening, first time by foot in Chiang Mai. Things learned so far: crossing roads is suicide, Thai people don't really speak English, they just Smile, and Tuktuk drivers are Mad!
Arrived at our hotel - chiang mai plaza. Large room with a bath! Very asian view :)
Arrived at Bangkok airport. Waiting for the final destination for today - Chiang mai! We already tried some weird looking desserts of banana and coconut- and then marched straight to burger king!
We landed in Chiang Mai. Now the real 'resting' begins :)

Air france lounge.. From now on, this is how I want to wait for my flights!!
Laduree on our stop to Thailand! 2 macaroons for each! Quick delights that end too fast!
On the flight from tel aviv to paris.
Air France is definitely not el-al. Real fork and knife, glass cups, China plates. Premium economy no.1 is already worth it
At the new Apple Store :)
And let the honeymoon begin...
