On 22nd of September i had a Scooter accident 30km east of Chiang Mai on our way to the highest mountain in Thailand.I feel much better by now, but I still have to take care of my foot and knee because my wounds are still not really closed.
I was so lucky and I guess a had a guardian angel.
I am so glad, that nothing really bad happened and nothing is broken.
But I am still afraid of riding on the back of a scooter. I did it twice now, but I didn’t feel good.
After the accident we spent one Week in Chiang Mai, and i Could not Leave our Hostel often. I had a very hard Time to walk or bend my knee.
Jeremy took good care of me and cleaned my wounds a few times a day with h2o2 and betadine, which helped a lot because it is antispectic and also drys it out a little.
After one week in Chiang Mai I felt better and we drove to Pai by bus, because Pai is such a good place to recover.
It was an about 3 hours ride on a windy road, but absolutely worth it.
We had a nice little bungalow in a cute garden for only 5€ a night.
We really loved to eat at the night market and it was a good training for my foot and knee to walk a little every day!
We went back to Chiang Mai and took a flight to the south of a Thailand.
Now we are on the beautiful island of Koh Tao, relaxing on the beach and enjoying the sound of the ocean.
Yesterday I thought it is a good idea to go in the ocean, because the salt water can help the wounds to heal. At first I went in the sea only with my feet and that felt so good and it did not burn on the wound at all.
So a few hours later we bought snorkeling equipment and I went in the sea completely.
My knee will take a few more days, it looks still a little deep, but I am happy that I am making progress so fast and I can walk almost normal already.
Thanks everybody for your support!
