    Laundry

    February 7, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Traveling is not always just sunrises, sunsets and sightseeing. Sometimes you have to do some laundry and other normal life stuff.

    Today is one of those laundry days for us, but it comes at a good time as we are both extremely exhausted after 20 days of full on traveling in Vietnam and Cambodia and we are both still nursing the bad tummy effects of our last dinner in Cambodia.

    Dryers are not a normal appliance in Asian Airbnb's and hotels, hence we use all the spaces possible to get stuff dry, from the small dry rack provided, to the shower and even inside the wardrobe.

    City Safari

    February 5, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Our city safari adventure started at 9am. We kicked off with a walk to the skytrain, then a boat ride on the river to the Grand palace, a walk to the temple, a tuk tuk ride ( the tuk-tuks are definitely more advanced and pimped up than those in Cambodia) to another boat to reach Jim Thompson house. After which we took the skytrain back to our apartment.

    Gympie

    February 7, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

    One of the things we found extremely difficult while traveling is staying fit. It was easy on the cruise when we had a running track and gym for 24 days and even in Aus and NZ where you could just strap on some trainers and go run a 5 km or even gym in one of the free outdoor gyms.

    However Asia is a very very different story altogether. Running is not as easy as strapping trainers on and going for a run. 9 times out of 10, we could only run in parks as the roads has no sidewalks and even if they have sidewalks these are considered to be part of the road, like in Ho Chi Minh where bikes will literally run you over on the sidewalk. The roads are just so congested and the lack of road rules makes running on the road super dangerous.

    So every time we have accommodation with facilities like this one we make full use of the facilities and hit the gym everyday. Unfortunately the last time we had a gym was in KL so its been 20 plus days since we really did much exercise except for yoga on the beach in Koh Rong Samloem.

    We both feel unbelievably unfit and it makes us realize that we enjoy feeling fit and healthy. Thats just something we enjoy about having in our routine of normal life.

    After only 2 days in the gym it feels like every muscle in my body hates me, but a good hate. I am definitely looking forward to regular training again.

    Wieder im Moloch

    December 9, 2019 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Die Fahrt hat etwas mehr als drei Stunden gedauert.
    Wieder in BKK suchen wir erst das Hotel....nach dem zwei Taxifahrer sich geweigert haben zu fahren .... hat sich dann doch jemand gefunden der fahren würde für 350 Bath. 😲😲
    350 wollte keiner haben wohl...
    Und so sieht es im Mövenpick aus.

    Verkehr

    December 11, 2019 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Bangkok Ist wie ein Bienenstock !!
    Es fährt hier kreuz und quer jeder und alles! Dreirad, zweirad, Auto ...Tuk Tuk , Hund und Katze....
    Grün oder rot spielt so gut wie keine Rolle. Und trotzdem wird hier niemand angefahren und die schrammen sich nicht!

    Rustic Island to Citylife

    February 5, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    The beauty of South East Asia is that you can get whatever you want. After a wonderful time on the lovely peaceful beaches of Cambodia we find ourselves in Bangkok, Thailand’s capital. Bangkok has about 15million people, around 50% Chinese and loads of other expats too. Bangkok is a city of contrasts with action around every corner, it didn't take us long to realize this is hip and happening. Even driving through the streets past midnight last night made me realize we did the right thing extending our stay to a few extra nights. We need to finalize the last chapter of our adventure and there is no better place to do so.

    After our city safari its time to slip on a dress and embrace the buzz of this world class city.
