・・・ 17/01/17 – Something unexpected ---------------------------------------------------------- In the beautiful province of Uthai Thani on the borders of Thailand and Burma. We spent the morning jungle trekking in the footsteps of dinosaurs. Then after a visit to a hot spring and a traditional silk weaving village we had an arrangement to meet a guy who would take us to meet people from a Karen hill tribe. The Karen people live in a region that spans Burma and Thailand. They have their own culture and languages. They have not had an easy time, particularly in Burma, and keep themselves apart. The best known are the Padaung tribe whose women wear numerous neck rings, often referred to as the long neck people. We waited at the meeting point by the side of a main road for some twenty minutes as the guy was buying chillies in the market. He arrived and we left in convoy. It was never certain that we would meet them. Maybe it woul be too dark to drive up the mountain. Maybe they would still be at a Karen craft market. We were on the trail. We stopped from time to time for the latest on where we could meet. In the end we only met these two lovely girls in their traditional costumes who were still at the Karen market with their father. We couln't have found more charming representatives of the Karen. ---------------------------------------------------------- read more on: www.karalisphoto.com / www.travelsofftrack.com ---------------------------------------------------------- #Thailand #yanniskaralis_photography #travelsofftrack #thailandofftrack ---------------------------------------------------------- Photography: @yannis.karalis_photography Story:@ealesmichael #travel #traveller #instalifo #athensvoice #500px #hubs_united #bbcearth #earthfocus #natgeo #earthonlocation #budha #nikonphotography #nikonphotographers #nikonphoto #nikonnofilter #nikonofficials #nikoncamera #nikonphotographer #nikon #earthpix #vsco #goprothailand #goprothchallenge #bookingloves

・・・ 16/01/17 - Floating market ---------------------------------------------------------- Taling Chan floating market is not as well known as some of the others. In fact two taxi drivers refused to take us there and the third one had the savvy to ask his office for directions. There aren't many markets left on the main Bangkok canal system, in fact some are many kilometers from Bangkok centre. Taling Chan is a local weekend market and locals outnumber tourists. Many of the stalls are fresh vegetables, and the lady here was sellibg live snakes, tiny turtles and frogs for cooking Thai delicacies. Even the homemade crafts are individual, not the familiar items you see in most markets this season. The local temple is simple with a few young monks and a couple of older ones, a couple of ancient dogs and lots of chickens. ---------------------------------------------------------- read more on: www.karalisphoto.com / www.travelsofftrack.com ---------------------------------------------------------- #Thailand #yanniskaralis_photography #travelsofftrack #thailandofftrack ---------------------------------------------------------- Photography: @yannis.karalis_photography Story:@ealesmichael #travel #traveller #instalifo #athensvoice #500px #hubs_united #bbcearth #earthfocus #natgeo #earthonlocation #budha #nikonphotography #nikonphotographers #nikonphoto #nikonnofilter #nikonofficials #nikoncamera #nikonphotographer #nikon #earthpix #vsco #goprothailand #goprothchallenge #bookingloves

Follow our blog @travels.offtrack 😊 ・・・ Throwback – Koh Chang, the light blue place ---------------------------------------------------------- Piers and jetties always attract the eye, especially empty ones with no signs. What type of boat comes here? What is its destination? Maybe a boat from a magical realm or from a scene in an action movie. Jetties always have a sense of promise, or hope or escape. Always a sense of future. This one is a substancial construction in the middle of nowhere in Koh Chang. Probably part of a development that didn't get built yet. Meanwhile it can be a gateway to our dreams. ---------------------------------------------------------- read more on: www.karalisphoto.com / www.travelsofftrack.com ---------------------------------------------------------- #Thailand #yanniskaralis_photography #travelsofftrack #thailandofftrack ---------------------------------------------------------- Photography: @yannis.karalis_photography Story:@ealesmichael #travel #traveller #instalifo #athensvoice #500px #hubs_united #bbcearth #earthfocus #natgeo #earthonlocation #budha #nikonphotography #nikonphotographers #nikonphoto #nikonnofilter #nikonofficials #nikoncamera #greecelover_gr #nikonphotographer #nikon #earthpix #vsco #goprothailand #goprothchallenge
