Where I Lost My Heart, Part Three: Chiang Mai

May 08, 2018



This story started here and tells how I found myself in Asia – Bangkok, to be exact – for the first time. It was an amazing experience! 


Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is the biggest city in Northern Thailand. Up till 1920, it was isolated from the rest of the country. You could get there on an elephants or fording through the river. You can really feel it there — the mountain atmosphere and former isolation created a peaceful, spiritual and harmonious place.

The center is built on a square plan and encircled by city walls. As soon as we got off the night bus, we directed ourselves into the walls, into the city proper. We encountered a cheap hostel on the spot, even though it was about 5 AM.

Of course, we had numerous ideas for how to spend our time there. We thought about an evening with Muay Thai or a (proposed by the boys) ping ping show. Ultimately there were four main themes to my Chiang Mai journey: trekking, temples, parties, and a tattoo.

About me

I am at a crossroads with several passions that, in general, may be described as words and sights. Formally, I'm a Polish Philology and Sociology graduate and right now I work as a TV editor. Not so formally, I’m just a word lover and an amateur photographer.

Here is another thought storage of mine, old, dusty, and abandoned, where I used to write while I was studying literary criticism.
