"Originally from southern Thailand, I settled down a few years ago in the North of the country, in Chiang Mai. Passionate about travelling, I am just as fond of the unmissables than venturing off the beaten track. I also enjoy hiking and encountering the locals and their traditions whilst drawing inspiration from the landscapes crossed by. I would be delighted to make you discover my country and all its treasures»
