      Back to Bangkok

      March 26, 2022 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 34 °C

      I get woken at 530 by a phone because everyone else is sleeping there are no seats so I just sit half up in my bed. We are due to arrive in Bangkok at 615 but when I look at my maps we are miles away. I get up and brush my teeth in the smallest bathroom then get back in my bed climbing a vertical ladder and rolling through the straps set up to keep me in. It's like being on a warship all over again. There are a grouped of German people on the train and at 6am the guard asks them to get out the bed so he can get the beds put away. At 630 they eventually get up and aren't wearing face masks and are videoing the different people on the train, so in true phi souw style I ask if they are special and explains everyone else has a mask on and it's rude to take pictures without asking permission. I get a backlash from the girl but I say be a good girl and behave now put your mask on I won't ask again. I've had another nice surprise this morning, Damon(the jazz singer)has messaged this morning that he's playing a gig in Bangkok and if I want to go and use his apartment to get a shower and get my head down for a few hours I'm more than welcome. I Bite his hand off and get straight in a taxi to his. When I arrive im overjoyed to see him and even more overjoyed to see he's got a bath. He has a few things to do this morning but tells me to make myself at home and he'll be back at 1230 to take me for lunch. I do manage to get a couple of hours sleep. Damon takes me to a little Korean restaurant and I enjoy spending a few hours catching up on the way back we stop at a junction and as a car is turning in a motorbike comes on his inside the guy is lying on the floor and we help lift the bike off him . We're unsure whether we should stay as we witnessed it but the guy sees ok before leaving to catch my bus at 4. I arrive at the Southern Station which is quite a way from the centre do the buses don't have to make their way through the city and when I arrive there are 50+ ticket booths. I find one that says Krabi and enquire about a ticket but she points me in the direction of another booth and here I ask what time the bus leaves she says 1930 but I was expecting 1745. I guess the other one must be full so purchase my vip ticket. I have 2 hours to kill so ask if I can leave my bag behind the counter which she kindly obliges to. I grab a coffee and smoke myself to death before heading back in to have my temperature taken and boarding my overnight bus. Chris has messaged to say my old place is Still available and I manage to get a cheaper rate because I've booked direct.Were only on the bus 10 minutes before we're transferred to another bus and 2 hours in just as im nodding off the lights come on. Weve stopped at a roadside cafe and a woman has got a megaphone directing people in from the multiple buses on the way to the South.I can't wait to get to the Islands.Read more

      Presun smer juh

      December 25, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ 🌙 25 °C

      Cele doobedu odychujeme na izbe, t.j. ja vana s penou ;)
      Poobede sa pomaly presuvame na letisko, preletime do Bangkoku a k veceru nastupujeme do autobusu smer Ranong.
      Brali sme najvacsi komfort aky sa da. Na nase pomery to vobec nie je drahe. Cely velikansky autobus ma len 24 sedadiel (3 v jednom rade). Sedadla su obrovske (pripomina mi to riaditelske kreslo), ja mam plne natiahnute nohy. V cene mame obcerstvenie, deku, vankus, no parada. Vraj mame aj stewardku, ale zatial vidim len stewarda, no uvidime...
      Rano okolo 7mej by sme mali dorazit do Ranongu a stadial este 2h cakat na lod a potom este 2h plavba a sme konecne na nasom prvom ostrove v teplucku pri mori.

      Na fotke sedenie v autobuse (to je sedacia poloha), este sa to da zlozit az do lezacej polohy.
