On our last evening in Chiang Mai, we received a message from Adrian Fleur who works for Chiang Mai City News. She had been following our blog, and noticed that we were currently in Chiang Mai, so she wanted to meet with us to do an interview for CM City News. Fortunately, even though we had already booked our bus tickets down south, we were free to connect with her for lunch the following day. In the morning we checked out of our guest house, met our friends for a final goodbye, and then made our way to meet with Adrian. To read about what we discussed with her during the interview about our life, you can click on this link: Interview with Chiang Mai City News.
We met at Aum Vegetarian Restaurant, which is in the Old City area of Chiang Mai, right next to Black Canyon Coffee, and opposite the Thapae Gate. From the outside, the restaurant doesn’t look like much, but the inside is very cozy and chilled. It turns out that we had walked by it on numerous occasions during the previous week. Aum offers an extensive vegetarian menu, although not very fancy, at very decent prices. Besides all the fantastic wraps, soups and sushi on the menu, you can basically order any Thai dish, and they will prepare it for you with vegetables instead of meat. We tried some fruit and yogurt Lassis and they were really delicious! This is a laid-back kind of place, where you can laze around, read books, or even strum on one of the guitars that they have. There is even a little garden upstairs which makes it feel quite fresh and homey.

This was a relaxing end to our very chilled week in Chiang Mai. When we had finished eating, and Adrian had headed back to the office, we gathered our backpacks and made our way to the Arcade bus station to begin our long journey from northern to southern Thailand. It was definitely high-time for us to get to those breathtaking beaches on the islands!
