Myself, Robert, aged 82 in wheelchair, accompanied by my very fit wife, Heather (age 76) and brother, Dr Henry (77), from Ireland, set off at dawn on 28th December 2008 from Manchester, to explore that part of Thailand largely unvisited by tens of thousands of annual British tourists. We took a deluxe minibus, plus Thai driver and two Thai Guide/Interpreters, travelling over 7,000 miles, in 8 weeks, staying at the “best available” hotels in each area.The whole trip was arranged on the internet, without any telephone contact, through a virtually “one man” Thai internet company All Thailand Experiences founded and owned by a 60-year old ex-Texan, Randy Gaudet, who had fallen in love with S E Asia following national service in Vietnam, then married a Thai girl and lived the past 20 years in Thailand. His organisation, helped by manager Nui (who accompanied us) was imaginative and superb – Randy put together a great team; the six of us had much amusement in our spacious “van” as we traveled for many hours between stops (each stop was usually of 2 to 4 nights). My wife (soon nicknamed “Professor Heather”) had great fun teaching our Thai guests idiomatic phrases, while my brother chipped in with stiff riddles and some apt proverbs.We toured East, then North, then West from Bangkok, covering, in depth that huge area known as “Northern Thailand”, which is seldom visited by European tourists, who, overwhelmingly, prefer to flock to the sun, beaches and water sports of Phuket, etc, in the remote southern tail. My brother and I are keen photographers, both use SLR Canon cameras. On this trip I mainly used a 28mm-300mm long focus lens, a bit of a monster, but no problem while using the wheelchair.
We have travelled previously on similar trips in China (including Tibet), India, Russia, Ecuador and many other countries, but have not before seen the extraordinary variety of interests of Northern Thailand My normal catch would be 300-400 photo, but on this trip I took over 1200.
