Hello from Chiang Mai!

Hello Dragons!

Just letting you know that Som, Marcus and I are now in Chiang Mai, Thailand together for staff training.

We are spending five days here with three of the other Asian iTeams and our Program Director making final arrangements for our course. We are also playing a tonne of games and enjoying some needed  R&R before we start our marathon journey down the Mekong. We encourage you to do the same.

Thanks again to those who have posted their intros. Please, to the others, get a wriggle on an post up your own Yak. It’s important.

We will see you personally on the 17th of September in Kumning Airport when you arrive. We will be waiting at the arrival gate so don’t walk off, just come out and stay put together as a group. Please wear your Dragons T-shirt too so we can identify you easily.

For those unsure, you will need to check in your bigger pack under the plane and carry your small day pack on board with you. Please make sure you have all your valuables (passport, wallet etc.), with you in your small day pack. Please make sure that your water bottles are empty before you go through security.

When you arrive we’ll post an arrival Yak so your loved ones know that you’re safe with us. We’ll be off the grid a lot so just let your families know to watch this Yak Board for updates from you.

See you all very soon!

Jess, Som & Marcus.
