Last week I completed a long, 1483Km motorbike trip with my sister Laura through Northern Thailand.

Starting from Chiang Mai, we headed North East through the mountains to Mae Hong Son (via Pai), before heading South about 650KM along the Thailand/Burma border via Mae Sot to our final destination - Umphang. Surrounded by national parks and wildlife reserves (and classified as a UNESCO World heritage site), Umphang is one of the most beautiful but least accessible districts in Thailand.

Come with us to the Loi Krathong festival in the ancient Thai capital of Sukhothai. Loy Kratong is a yearly festival celebrated on the full moon in November in Thailand. This podcast begins before I traveled to Sukhothai, sitting on a sunny bank by a lake in Mae Sot near the Burma border, and ends with a firework display in the Old City of Sukhothai, before returning to Chiang Mai.

Join us on a road trip to the wild sunflower fields of Doi Mae U-Kho in Northern Thailand (Mae Hong Son province). The sunflower fields bloom during November and early December, painting the entire mountain of Doi Mae U-kho in gold. The flowers are also known as Bua tong in Thai or Golden lotus and are actually Mexican sunflowers. This podcast includes a stop off in Mae Sariang and a visit to Ob Luang National Park.

Earthoria P03: A night-time motorbike trip to the Brasserie through Chiang Mai

Last Friday evening I decided it was far too long since I went to the Brasserie - a Jazz/Blues bar on the river Ping in Chiang Mai, Thailand - so I rode across the city on my motorbike attempting to ‘narrate’ on the way.

Earthoria S01: Night time sounds in Chiang Mai, Thailand Sounds only. This was recorded from outside our house in Chiang Mai. We fall asleep with these sounds every night - from the Cicadas and barking dogs on a dry night, to thousands of mating frogs after the rains, it is never quiet outside….! Is it any wonder we both sleep with earplugs?!
