What a fascinating couple of days. I feel meeting Mal (Our Warm Showers host) has highlighted all of the research I had been doing recently. Listening to his story of how he beat bowel cancer by turning to a vegan diet was inspiring and I feel I want to shout it from the roof tops. All of the books, papers and articles I have been reading were coming together and Mal was living breathing proof of the positive result a change to this lifestyle can have!
We left Lamphun around 9am but as soon as we steps outside we realised our error. We had been lazy leaving thinking it was a short day at 35km so no need to rush. Unfortunately the sun never got the memo and was already out waiting for us.
Being in no rush to get to Chiang Mai we said cheery-o to the Germans and instead opted for a late start and a shorter day to Lamphun.
Before embarking on our recent cycle tour of New Zealand we were unaware of the problems the country is facing with regards its wildlife conservation and the extremely lengths being taken to continue to manipulate it.
