      thailand (2)

      July 8, 2022 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

      We have a second but rather involuntarily transit in Thailand. Unfortunately something went wrong with our visas for India but we are looking forward to catch the next flight. Since then we stay in paradise.

      Wir haben einen etwas unfreiwilligen, zweiten Stopp in Thailand, da leider etwas mit unseren Visen für Indien schief gelaufen ist. In ein paar Tagen gehts dann weiter, solange bleiben wir wohl noch etwas im Paradies.

      P.S. I miss my second half. (Ich vermisse meine zweite Hälfte.) 🤍

      Unser erster Abend

      July 19, 2023 in Thailand ⋅ ☁️ 28 °C

      Unser Hostel für die ersten 2 Nächte ist eher außerhalb von Bangkok. Dadurch konnten wir heute aber ganz roh und ungeschliffen dem Nachtleben der einheimischen beiwohnen. Erst gab es einen kleinen Snack und Bier in einem Grilllockal mit Liveband und dann haben wir uns an verschiedenen kleinen Ständen die überall an der Straße stehen noch durch so manches durch probiert. 😋Read more

      BKK - nur eine Nacht

      March 13, 2019 in Thailand ⋅ 🌙 28 °C

      Das Kontrastprogramm kommt geballt. Flughafen LP genauso entspannt wie die kleine Stadt... Abflug fast pünktlich... Ankunft BKK Don Muang Airport. Mit dem Shuttle Bus zum Suvarnabhumi (schreibt man das so?) Airport. 60 km ca 1 Std 45 Min...Stau in alle Richtungen... kein Sitzplatz. Dafür den besten Stehplatz ergattert. Vorne neben dem Fahrer... Dieser Verkehr ist Wahnsinn. Dann Ankunft am Airport und Taxi zum Hotel Aport. Nähe Flughafen, denn morgen früh um 8.45 Uhr startet mein Flieger nach Samui. Das Hotel klinisch rein... gleich um die Ecke tobt das Leben. Diesmal komplett ohne Europäer. Auf dem Nachtmarkt war ich die einzige Touristin. Das Morning Glory und der Papaya Salat so scharf, daß mich die jungen Leute am Nebentisch fragten, ob alles ok sei - mir liefen die Tränen aus den Augen wie noch nie. Aber ich war tapfer und hab fast die Tellerchen leergegessen. Gut, daß ich mir vorsichtshalber gleich ein großes Chang bestellt hab... das hilft ein wenig.
      Gleich gehts zurück zum Hotel und ab ins weiße, unglaublich harte Bettchen. Morgen früh um 5.45 Uhr ist die Nacht vorbei - und dann - Strand ich komme!!!

      One Night in Bangkok

      March 2, 2022 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

      Am 28.2. um 16 Uhr war ich am Miami Airport, jetzt, am 02.03. um 18.46 Lokalzeit bin ich endlich am Zwischenziel Bangkok angelangt. Nach knapp 40 Std Reisezeit und zusätzlich noch 12 Std Zeitverschiebung bin ich jetzt so kaputt wie ich kaum jemals war. Direkt nach der Landung in Bangkok und Ausfüllen von gefühlt 100 Zetteln, die alle das gleiche abfragen, wurde ich vom Quarantäne-Hotel in Empfang genommen, dort zu einem Krankenhaus eskortiert um einen PCR Test zu machen und bin nun für die Nacht in Quarantäne. Stört aber gar nicht, weil ich mich jetzt ohnehin keinen cm mehr von meinem Bett wegbewege 😂 morgen Nachmittag fahr ich dann wieder zum Flughafen und flieg endlich final nach Kambodscha - nach diesen 2.5 Monaten kann ich mein Leben lang Buße tun, um meinen CO2-Fußabdruck wieder irgendwie zu verkleinern 🤯
      Ich hoff auch so, dass ich mir im Flieger kein Covid geholt hab, dann würd ich in Bangkok in Q festsitzen und Alex könnte allein Kambodscha bereisen 🙈 Morgen früh krieg ich das Ergebnis, bis dahin - over and out. 😴

      Day 19

      March 29, 2023 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 35 °C

      We woke at about 6am this morning to pack up everything and have breakfast before our return to Thailand today. We were a bit early for breakfast but the staff didn’t seem to mind. This has been the most grand hotel that we have stayed in, and it is definitely one we will remember. We organised a Grab to the airport through the busy Phnom Penh traffic, although it’s nothing like Bangkok or Beijing! Our driver was very grateful when we gave him the remainder of our Cambodian money as we will not be needing it from today onwards.

      As it turned out, the time of our flight had changed to twenty minutes later, so we were quite early. Adding to that, they didn’t open the check in counters until about two hours before the flight! This was the only airline where we were required to purchase the cost of checking in a bag beforehand and, even though my bag was over 15kg, they didn’t mention anything about paying extra.

      We had a slight freak out at immigration when the agent couldn’t locate Ted’s Cambodian visa in his passport. We weren’t sure if the check in agent removed it or if it fell out, but Ted provided proof on his phone that we had purchased one and all was fine. I bought a coffee and croissant before the flight since it is an airline where food is optional. The flight itself was actually quite pleasant, mainly due to the crew and the fact that it wasn’t overly full.

      Our arrival in Bangkok was very easy because, as hectic as Bangkok airport is, it also runs quite smoothly. We caught a taxi back to the Park Nine Hotel and settled in before Ted headed into the city for a dental appointment. After he returned, he had mentioned seeing Sizzler near our hotel and, after great memories of the restaurant, thought it would be a good option for dinner.

      After crossing the absolutely crazy street out front to reach the restaurant, the experience sadly wasn’t as good as we remembered. The vegetarian meals apparently weren’t available so I settled for just the salad bar. Even that was disappointing as there were so few options. Ted’s meal took ages to arrive and unfortunately the whole experience didn’t motivate us to come back again.

      We had a look around the local shopping centre too where I bought some shorts, as well as an egg tart from KFC (if they sold them back home, I’d become a regular there). Tomorrow we will continue our journey home via Manila.

      Day 2

      March 12, 2023 in Thailand ⋅ 🌧 34 °C

      We woke early again today after a so-so sleep, giving us time to pack up before going to Melbourne airport. The Uber fare quote for today was even more expensive than yesterday, so we settled on a taxi fare which was slightly cheaper. It ended up being a maxi taxi so at least there was plenty of room for ourselves and our luggage.

      Since we’d purchased business class fares, we had the advantage of a smaller check-in queue before heading to the Marhaba Lounge, which is complimentary to business class passengers with Philippine Airways. We have been here before after purchasing lounge passes - it is definitely not the same quality as a Qantas lounge, but it’s still good to be in a private area with complimentary food and drinks. Our boarding ended up being later than expected, but the process was easy and hassle free.

      We haven’t flown Philippine Airways before, and the business class was a delight. Each seat is a pod like on the Qantas A330, and the service is amazing. Personally, we both thought it was better than business class on Qantas. The meal service we received was great too - since we aren’t flying standby for once, I was able to pre-order an ovo-lacto vegetarian meal instead of just hoping they’d have an option available. The best thing was the amount offered - for the first time in a long time, I had to refuse any more!

      I settled in and watched the new "Ghostbusters: Afterlife" movie and spoke briefly to the crew, who were trying to avoid an exceedingly drunk elderly man who kept coming into the galley. I don’t think they have the same RSA regulations as we do back home! I also watched “DC League of Super Pets” which was pretty fun and more enjoyable than the other movie.

      I continued my tradition of getting a photo with the cabin crew who kindly gave us some snacks to enjoy after leaving the flight. I ended up taking the onboard blanket with me, in case we may need it for the overnight train journey through Vietnam. After arriving into Manila, we made our way to the transfer area for our next flight to Bangkok. As we had three hours until our departure, we could use the Mabuhay Lounge here as well, for some extra comfort and food.

      Whilst in the queue for the transfer passengers, we met a couple from Victoria, John and Fiona, who accompanied us to the lounge. The four of us got along extremely well, particularly since John and Ted were taking advantage of the free bourbon! Time flew quickly and, before we knew it, it was time to walk the short distance to our next gate, which was already in the process of boarding.

      The seats on this flight were different from the last flight but actually more comfortable, similar to the business class seats on Lufthansa. We needed to wait a while onboard for the final passengers before we could depart and be on our way. We certainly can’t complain about being hungry either - for a short flight, we were again served a two course meal which we loved.

      Since we are still on Melbourne time, I took advantage of the fully flat bed to meditate and get some sleep. The arrival into Bangkok was slightly bumpy but it was otherwise another amazing flight with Philippine Airlines. At the airport baggage collection though, one of our bags came through quickly with about nine others, then the others didn’t come for another 15 minutes!

      We bade farewell to John and Fiona before catching a taxi to our hotel nearby. The hotel is beautiful, but since it was close to 11pm, we didn’t really get a chance to see much. Tomorrow we continue our travels on to Vietnam.

    • Day 113

      Bangkok Monday H3 #2104

      April 22 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 38 °C

      It was about 39 C (102 F) out at the start of this trail, so it was another sweaty affair. We were trotting along some khlong paths, through some banana trees, a long open field of sponge grass (not wet, but every step would sink down a good 12 inches), and then we reached a point at about 6.5 kms, where an angry farmer did not want us passing through, and collected up all the paper marks.

      The Nigerian and I turned around, and headed back to a point where we could circle around, ended up adding a couple kms to the total trail. I think some of the hashers may have grabbed a taxi, and others just shortcutted back to the start. The Nigerian and I were out for 2 hours, and last to arrive, even after cutting back around and finding the in trail.

      Good thing there was some water and cold beer waiting for us at the end. All is well that ends well. Overall, a fun trail (that ended up being 11.6 kms), and another great day on the hash.
