Trekking

Crossing the bamboo bridge.

Crossing the bamboo bridge.

I remembered to put up my mosquito net last night, but it still didn’t stop the swarm of ants and mosquitoes which landed 82 bites around one of my ankles (yes I counted)!

Firstly I’d like to state waking up in the jungle and realising you forgot to put up a mosquito net is not too pleasant. A lot of anti-septic cream later, we set off through the rest of the village passing the nearby school, where even English lessons are part of the curriculum.

After the tropical jungles of Malaysia, you’d have thought I’d had enough to sweating out in mosquito ridden areas, but there is something quite natural and rewarding about trekking out in nature. So I went out to a jungle in northern Thailand this time.

Last night I went to a photography meet with Sydney who introduced me to a few people, one of those was Coco and her Husband Jeff. Coco told me she was heading over to the Bako national park and invited me along so the next day they picked me up and took me along.
We went in on a group of 5, another woman joined us and Paul who seems to know everything about the park and was keen on using me as a model for the day in his picture taking.
