Chiang Mai, Thailand: Taking my 58 and 61 years old parents to water rafting! Are we crazy?

Year 2010, my dad was 61 years old and my mom was 58 years old. Me and my siblings took our parents with us to a trip in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Throwback to the Chiang Mai, Thailand trip, we were all not in the right mind. The trip included elephant trekking, mountain trekking, flying fox and white water rafting!
