Breakfast - the most important meal of the day...

Amazingly, we woke up today (Boxing Day) without hangovers - I don't remember that happening to me in the last 10 years! It was a good feeling! We made the most of our healthy appetites and fresh heads by making our way to a place we'd heard rumour of called Breakfast World. As Tam's favourite meal of the day is breakfast, and as we are both seriously missing real Western breakfast food, we decided to try it out in the hopes of finding all the things we were craving. We were not disappointed! Thank God for the German guy who set the place up! It was like heaven! Real crusty bread! Real jam with actual fruit in it! Tea! Real sausages! HOT baked beans! Oh my God! I might just eat here every meal we have left in Chiang Mai!!!

Admittedly though, a huge breakfast followed by a 4 hour, twisting journey through the mountains to a small hippie town called Pai (pronounced pie) was not the best idea! Tam in particular was not feeling her best by the time we fell out of the bus and onto the main street at our destination.

From what we can tell Pai is a bit like marmite to travellers - you either love it or hate it. We love it! OK, so it is ridiculously touristy, every other person is wearing hemp clothes and/or has dreadlocks, and almost everything sold is for the benefit of the tat collections of travellers. But we want to stay forever! Perhaps it is the laid back attitude or the feeling that we can stay here and feel guilt free about doing next to nothing for a few days, or perhaps we are turning into actual hippies (!), but we're happy to be staying put for a few days....... Tam, is it just me or is that hemp skirt actually really pretty?? Only joking! :-)
