As most of you are aware, I have just returned home from a month of backpacking through Thailand. I started off in Bangkok, made my way up North to Chaing Mai, where I did a 2 day jungle trek, experienced riding an elephant and played with wild monkeys, which was incredible.
After Chaing Mai, I worked my way down south which included travelling on many lovely overnight trains and boats, maybe lovely isn’t the word to use! This trip opened my eyes to how lucky we are to have the things we have in this country. I met many Thai locals who have no luxuries, but are the happiest people and are grateful for what they do have. Whilst in Thailand I also experienced using some of the gyms which was interesting. Some of the equipment is very different compared to what we use here at The Atrium and I noticed that the locals out there do more cardiovascular training than endurance/resistance training.
