Oh the stories behind Chiang Mai! If you’re just visiting this little series… hop on over to the ‘Travel Adventures’ tag (at the bottom of this post) to see our trekking journey across the beautiful countries of Australia, New Zealand and Thailand from start to finish.
If you’ve followed for a bit, welcome back to Thailand! While exploring the rural north country, and specifically areas around Chiang Dao (which is an even more rural version of Chiang Mai), we had the opportunity to: ride elephants, take a lazy river trip by bamboo raft, crawl through 12″ crevices in a local cave, hike through six hill tribe villages and spend the night high on a mountain in a little woven hut.
*Jump on over to PDB’s Facebook page to watch two quick videos from our elephant camp adventures*

Kirsten, over at 6th Street Design School blog, just finished the cutest makeover for her son, Jett. Her son’s name, and husband’s full time job as a pilot, gave way to the perfect aviation theme for the space; from the wall decals, model airplanes, clustered globes and paper plane garland strung across the ceiling, all of the details are adorable.
But Kirsten confides that she didn’t start out with a jet theme in mind: “In designing his nursery I wanted to steer clear of the obvious airplane theme. But guess what? I just couldn’t do it. The airplanes kept calling to me. But in the end I really like how it turned out. If I would have to describe this room in 3 words they would be Adventure, Colorful and Sentimental. It is full of mementos from my husband’s childhood and even has a few items from our travels. The room is the tiniest room on the planet earth so I tried to make sure each item in it meaningful.”
