ISB Girl Scouts joined us for a weekend on the Barge. The girls were great to work with; they actively engaged in Barge Crews cooking yummy breakfast, lunch and dinners for the group; keeping the barge clean and helping us navigate. After cruising down the river for a couple of hours we stopped off at Piyawan Resort where we spent the night. At the resort the girls got to go kayaking on the Chao Phraya and to tie dye cloth bags using natural dyes. In the evening we had a campfire which was lots of fun, especially when the scouts taught us some new songs that we all loved. We finished, of course with toasting marshmallows.
The next day after a delicious breakfast we set off sailing back down the Chao Phraya to Bangkok stopping on the way at Ko Kret to explore the temple and have a go at making some pottery. On board the Barge we played games and made recycled paper studded with seeds which the girls will plant to find out what the surprise flowers are. Then it was time for one last set of Barge Crews before saying goodbye to the girls in Bangkok.
Thanks for a great trip and hopefully we’ll see you next year!
