This morning we went to the natural hotsprings with Louise, one of the people we'd met in Chiang Mai. We spent an hour sitting in the different pools which are all naturally heated. It was soooooo relaxing!

We had lunch at a cafe back in Pai which served goats cheese salad! Neither of us have eaten goats cheese since we left the UK so this was most enjoyable!

Then we all had a foot, back and shoulder massage down the road. There was a bit more "Thai massage" to these than we expected...a lot of twisting in unnatural positions, joints creaking, back cracking, but it felt good afterwards!

Jo was still feeling poorly from yesterday so went back to the hostel for a lie down whilst Louise and I looked in all the clothes stores (of which there are many in Pai).

That evening, with Jo feeling really poorly and me feeling completely drained, we loaded up on street food (pad thai, spring rolls, baked potato and banana fritters), which we ate back in our room whilst watching Northanger Abbey on the laptop.
