Special People We Met in Thailand

In Thailand we were lucky to meet some very interesting people. We had two great meditation guides who educated us and inspired us to meditate every morning. A practice that we continue to do. On the left of the picture is Yongdu a Buddhist Lama. On the right is Frans, a former CEO of an important emergency management company in the Netherlands. Frans left the corporate world to live in Thailand and run workshops to help people find their purpose in life.

Another person that guided us during our fast and provided a lot of useful information is Tom Coghill. For the last 30 years all his efforts have been focused on juice fasting. He runs a fasting website and has written a few e-books on this subject.

Another aspect that we are exploring in this trip is researching and learning about the mystic world in Asia. In Thailand we met Papu (picture below) who is a 1,000 year old monk. Papu is currently using the body of the Thai woman in the picture. She married an English speaking person who translated Papu’s guidance for us. Papu gave us advice, good luck amulets and told us that the future is looking bright for us.

Before leaving this wonderful country, we spent some time on top of a scooter around Mae Rim and Chiang Mai visiting rice fields, Buddhist temples and delicious restaurants. Here are a few pictures:

Thailand: Our First Country

On July 6th, we arrived in Bangkok, Thailand! We could only believe it after we had our first Thai Curry. D E L I C I O U S!!!  At this point we really felt like all we did was eat so we decided to go for a walk to explore the city for a few hours before our flight to Chiang Mai (Northern Thailand).

When the airplane landed in Chiang Mai we knew we had chosen the perfect place to start our inner journey in Asia.
