We spent four weeks traveling all around Thailand and came across some incredible vegan food along the way. Since people always ask us “Is it hard to find vegan food in fill-in-the-blank-city?”, we wanted show off some the great stuff we ate in Thailand!
We had so much fun hanging out and training at CrossFit Ten500 last week! It’s the best CrossFit gym in Bangkok, and everyone there was super cool. We met people from more than a dozen countries that were brought together through fitness, and to top it off, the manager Rose is vegan!
This week we found ourselves in the capital of Thailand—Bangkok. With a population of more than 6.3 million people, it is by far the largest city we’ve been to. We skipped the tourist attractions and focused on getting a feel for the local city lifestyle, working out, and connecting with people.
After spending the last week in Chiang Mai, this week we took a bus about three hours north to Chiang Rai, Thailand…easy to get confused, we know! We explored a crazy temple and a few waterfalls, and got a ticket on the motorbike!
It’s crazy to think six weeks ago when we we started our trip my belly was flat, and now I can barely see my toes! I have noticed when we go to a different city and I have to put on my backpack I can tell that my belly grew by the straps of the buckle—I can’t buckle it anymore and need to adjust it!
If you’ve been wondering what kind of places we’ve been staying at ever since we left behind the comforts of a five star luxury resort, here’s a look at what $7 a night will get you in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
We had so much fun at the vegan cooking class we took in Bali that we decided to take a Thai cooking class in Chiang Mai. It was a totally different kind of experience, and we loved every minute of it…especially the eating part!
After a tough fourth week, our fifth week traveling found us in Chiang Mai (Northern Thailand) taking things slow and trying to heal ourselves from bad allergies and food poisoning. Of course we still managed to pack in some good times and adventures though!
