My Swedish friend Bjorn built this country home in the highlands of Northern Thailand a few years ago. Just a beautiful property. Check out more of it here. Bjorn just sold it late last year prior to moving to Colombia.
I never got the chance to stay at Bjorn's Thailand mountain retreat, even though he generously offered free accommodation whenever I visited him in Chiang Dao. The irony is, he's now coming to visit us in Asheville, North Carolina this summer. And I plan to show him our own mountains!
