DIY: Raft building in Thailand!

DCIM100GOPROGOPR6193.

Raft building is an art. Raft building out of trash is something else…

I have mentioned it a few times already: Sometimes I wish I hadn’t met my friend John with all his crazy ideas. This time I even cancelled a flight to Brazil, just to join him and our mutual buddy Gui in a project of raft building and taking this raft down the Ping river in Thailand…

Well, that plan totally didn’t work due to a severe lack of water. Which we could have possibly known beforehand if we had done some research…

But what should we do instead? We decided for a road trip all the way through Thailand, from the North to the South. And that went pretty well until we discovered a lovely, lonely beach on airbnb where we stopped for a few days. Because it became clear quite quickly that fate was offering us another chance for our #diyraftventure raft building idea! What happened then, I hear you ask. Well, sometimes pictures do, in fact, say more than a thousand words…
