My name is Daniel, I am from Seattle Washington. My partner Libby and I have been living in Asia since June 2010. I work for Whole Planet Foundation a US non-profit organization supporting microfinance activites around the world. I travel frequently as I visit our partners throughout the region. Libby is a teacher at a local kindergarten school where every day is an adventure!
In regards to Chiang Mai, in all my travels (I have lived in Bangkok, Colombia, Mexico, Chile, Argentina and Guatemala), I have not yet found a more relaxing, comfortable, active city as here. There are some really cool activities and traditional influences among this urban village I am so happy to currently call home.
As hosts we can recommend many things to do and see while you are visiting Chiang Mai or Thailand in general. Please don't hesitate to ask!
