Fang Orange Farm to Mae Suai - Part 2.
Woke up the next day on the orange farm with the family that said they were going to take me to Chiang Rai. They made me breakfast and got me drunk again in the morning. The driver gave me 2 shots of rum at 8:30am haha! We had beer and some traditional homemade food. Some kind of meat porkballs with some greens and sticky rice. Before leaving we got a tour of the farm (no… (read on in Trip)

Brickhouse Hostel to Local Gas Station
Trying to get to Chiang Rai. Got a ride from a friendly American living in Pai. Took me to a local gas station where I made a sign for Chiang Rai.
Local Petrol Station to Shell Petrol Station by intersection of 1095 and 107.
Had some trouble getting a ride from first gas station so I walked a couple meters down away from the locals to pick a new spot. No luck after a couple minutes so I decided to walk down to the next gas station. Thai lady with very little English said she was going to Chiang Mai and could take me. Nice ride through the mountain. Stopped and had Pad Thai. I treated her.
Petrol Station at 107 to Side of Highway
A very confusing ride. Thai lady picked me up with minimal english and said she was going 60km but still insisted I come along when I said I was going to Chiang Mai. She picked her friend up and then drove to this farm to unload some boxes which I think were pig food. When I asked all they said was "Pig". We took some pictures together with some ladys on the farm and they gave… (read on in Trip)

Chumphon Pier to Chumphon
Started my journey on the island Koh Tao. It was a late very at 10:15 but it was the earliest and cheapest I could get to start hitchikig. My goal was to make it all the way up to Ayutthaya Chiang Mai but first stopping in Ayutthaya to check out the ruins. I knew it was ambitious to do it all in one day but I thought I would try.
I napped on the ferry over and got off the… (read on in Trip)
Chumphon to Main Highway
I walked towards the main highway and started hitchiking outside a bus station thinking it would lead me on the main highway. After about 10 minutes a lady came out with a iced cold Pepsi and gave it to me. So kind.
I kept waiting. A stopped and looked like he was dropping some people off but he walked up to me and asked me where I was going. He didn’t seem interested in… (read on in Trip)
Highway to Amphoe Ban Lat
Got a ride after 15 minutes on the side of the highway from a couple. I asked to go to Ratchaburi because it seemed like it was past the turn off for Bangkok. I’ve heard it’s difficult hitchhiking out of Bangkok. He spoke very little English but told me to get in immediately after I said Ratchaburi so I hopped in the cab.
It was a long fast ride down the highway. He stopped… (read on in Trip)
