Travel notes Thailand - part 2

Here are some more photos from my trip around Thailand. I already miss my daily fresh fruit smoothies and fresh coconut. (I think I will have to get a blender so I can make my own smoothies for breakfast - especially a blend of pineapple, lemon and ginger! Mmhh!)
Other essentials included banana or mango pancakes (very tasty) and Jasmin blossoms which smelled so lovely and made any accessories unnecessary when worn in your hair. I was also amazed at the sheer amount of orchids you would see everywhere - piled up at the market, adorning drinks, ... it was crazy!
The first photo shows the highest spot in Thailand, where they built a little shrine for a former king. A very beautiful place in a relatively cold, rainy forest, in which water dropped from every branch and fog hovered above the ground! There was moss on every statue but they were decorated with fresh flowers. Magical!
I also loved the embroidered handcrafts you could find everywhere. Maybe I should have gotten a waistcoat or a jacket? There was not enough room in my backpack.
