Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

Smiling lady bar

A singha beer and a batch of bananas was purchased here at the smiling lady bar

When you are riding a several ton animal through the backcountry of Chiang Mai, Thailand it is great when you come across a bar. Not only did this bar have cold singhas in the red cooler, but the lady also had bananas for my transportation. When you are riding on top of a giant beast it is great to come across a bar that caters to both your needs and those of your elephant.


The goal of Traveling Ted TV is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
