It's always great to meet like-minded people, which is what happened last night when we met Joi and Wes at the Cocktail Car (and then went on to Zoe in Yellow - photo above). 

Joi, who hails from Chiang Rai, just north of Chiang Mai, invited us to join them for lunch at a beautiful lake which is not that well known by tourists: located at Huay Tung Tao.
The lake there is simply breathtaking. Overlooking the foothills of the Himalayas, it is possible to sit in palm huts, eat wonderful Thai cuisine, and then swim in the lake. Paradise - and thanks again Joi for showing it to us! See for yourself:
It's just a shame they were leaving the following day - although I did get to say goodbye to them in a local pub where I was watching Man Utd (lose! bah!) - which happened to be where Joi used to work. 

@ Joi and Wes: it was a pleasure to get to know you, keep in touch and I hope we get to share a beer together again soon. Adrian and Victoria xx

Hi Victoria and Adrian,
That is a nice story and we had a really nice time also. Now we are back in Holland (14 degrees wind and rain) and we really miss Thailand and Chiang Mai. Maybe we see you again in april. Enjoy your fantastic trip and if you need any information about Thailand or Chiang Mai, my tourguide Jay is always available :)

Wesley and Jay xx

Hey Wesley, with any luck we'll see you in April! We're heading up to Chiang Rai later this month so will finally get to see Jay's hometown! Keep in touch! :-)
