There was plenty of time for photos while waiting for the train to arrive to take the children from the Home on their first ever long distance holiday, to the northern city of Chiang Mai. Eighty in total, children, toddlers and teenagers, and most of the staff all climbed on board the slow train at Pattaya to Bangkok, a total of four hours.
After a wait of four hours they boarded the north bound train fro a 14 hour journey to the top of the Kingdom. Then they had a three hour bus journey until they reached their final destination. A long day, a long journey, but they will have a wonderful time with each other, and in a week’s time they will make the journey back to Pattaya, by train.
