Life @ Pai πŸ„πŸƒπŸ§‘

Pai is the oasis for connectivity, peacefulness, and the hippie loving life.
It is awesome.
About a 3 hour van ride, twisty with a little over 700 turns, it is definitely manageable and worth it once you reach this paradise tucked within the mountain tops.
We stayed at Pho Rak Nah Pai. I’m pretty sure I sprouted fairy wings the minute I walked through the entrance. Cobblestones lead the way to various mud huts, each with their own hammock and balcony with table and chairs. We had the choice of three and stuck with a corner hut, private and with a sunrise view over rice fields. The room itself was cozy, a beautiful Ganesh tapestry hung on the wall with flowy, sheer curtains covering the windows. Colored lights hung from the wall giving it this moody calming look. It’s an experience already, you feel closer, humbled, and curious.
The town itself is quaint. Everyone is smiling and looking a little dazed, in their own world. The first night settling in we popped into a few bars, talking to those who’ve been around, getting the scoop on what’s good.
Pai is also a 420 Mecca and the spot to find a superb mushroom shake. Just do it is our motto. For anyone whose experienced psychedelics, a bar called Sunset Bar is where it’s at. And yes...it works. We checked it out the next day but not before I received some ink therapy. After looking around, asking prices and scoping through artwork we decided on Cross Tattoo. They know what they’re doing. It felt like a western tattoo shop. My artist redrew the image I wanted to fit my arm and personalized it for me. It’s great when an artist cares enough about the work being done. Understanding it was more of a stress/anxiety/life relieving session, he quietly went to work and let me escape. The result was everything I wanted and more. Huge shout out to Cross Tattoo Pai!!
We knew Sunset Bar was next on the agenda that night so no food, just straight to the shroom shake. It’s best on an empty stomach, the effects are more powerful with a clear body. We ordered one apiece and a prerolled joint. Not being a fan of crowds, especially upon entering a trip, we downed ours, picked up food for after and headed home. Pretty sure as we started seeing lights lengthen and the color spectrum widen we knew we were in for a ride.
I can’t go to much into detail ☺️πŸ’«....though I can say it’s totally worth itπŸ™ŒπŸΌ. Lasting roughly 5-6 hours we ate our food, smoked some green and drifted to a content sleep.
Next day— exploring day! Pai, while small, has much to see. We got on our moped, rented the other day and mapped out some sights. For us, the main attractions were the White Temple on the Hill and Pai Canyon. The temple is just incredible. To be near something so ancient and sacred and respected that has withstood so many years is wonderful and humbling.
On our way to the canyon we saw the Memorial Bridge, dated back to WWII, a little piece for the history buff. We also stopped by Strawberry Fields. A happy, cute, little, Beatles playing garden. There’s love and peace everywhere you look, not to mention tons of strawberry everything.
Close to that is the Pai Canyon. It’s breathtaking. Unlike, the Grand Canyon in the U.S., one can actually walk through parts of this creation of Mother Nature. The views are indescribable. It’s a place to sit back and wonder, to be still and be mystified at the beauty in front of you.
Knowing we were leaving the next morning, the rest of the afternoon es spent having a few beers at bars with Mountain View’s and smoking grass, enjoying the quiet nature of Pai.
We’re beyond grateful we chose to take a chance with Pai. It was eye opening, life changing. An experience we hold dear to our hearts.
Conclusion: Pai is extraordinary and worth every second. ✌🏼❤️
