Chris hates spiders. I hate cockroaches. So before we moved to Thailand, we never believed that one day we would actually live in harmony with these creatures. Not go into a kung fu frenzy at the sight of one, you say? Since having our fair share of surprise encounters with them over the past two years, we’ve learned how to handle Thailand’s bugs and other creepy crawlies without getting too freaked out!
We’re a couple who shares our experiences about living and traveling in Thailand and helps others learn how to do the same through our blog. So, you’d probably guess that we’re often asked, “What do you do during a typical day?” Our daily schedule has flip-flopped around a lot since moving here, so before it changes again, here’s a look at a day in the life in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

The other day we were feeling a bit goofy, and might we add, curious. So we went into our local 7-Eleven and instead of walking past the prepackaged Thai snacks like we normally do, we decided to do a bit of a taste testing experiment. Why not try out some typical, but none-the-less, unusual Thai snacks? Here’s to being guinea pigs!
