      Tous aux abris !

      February 4 in Thailand ⋅ 🌙 27 °C

      Ce matin petit footing puis douche du siècle, petit Pancake au miel et zou direction l'opposé de la ville pour aller faire un cours de cuisine.
      Je marche pendant 1h et après je prends le métro aérien pendant 30 min.

      Dans le métro un occidental me dit "il pleut ?" du coup je lui ri au nez et je lui dis "bah non". Et la il me fait "si si il pleut regarde". Aaaaah oui il pleut ! Mais il faisait grand soleil ya 2 secondes, je sais pas ce que je regardais dans le métro mais j'étais visiblement pas très concentrée parce que j'ai rien vu arriver.
      Et quand il pleut dans ce pays ça rigole pas. Les gouttes sont giga grosses : j'ai fait maximum 200m sous l'eau j'étais littéralement trempée (même mes sous vêtements ont pris l'eau).
      Et d'où ils sortent tout ces parapluies et ponchos les thai ? A quel moment c'était prévisible cette averse 😂

      Pendant le cours de cuisine, la dame nous fait d'abord visiter le marché en nous expliquant tous les produits locaux et comment ils les utilisent. Ensuite direction la cuisine pour réaliser 5 plats : Une pâte de curry au piment, un curry au poulet, une soupe de coconut, des crevettes revenues à la poêles et du mango sticky Rice.
      Une fois qu’on à tout cuisiné on peut tout manger yumii

      En revenant dans le centre je vais me faire masser. Cette fois ci 1h tout le corps avec de l'huile, mama c'est divin 😍
      Je prends mon dernier smoothie banane et dernier mango sticky Rice et je rentre à lhostel faire mon sac. Demain départ 7h pour le Cambodge 😇

      Thailand!!!

      December 18, 2021 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

      Vandaag hebben we dan eindelijk de overstap gemaakt naar Thailand. Na het afzien van gister, zie de foto's, hebben we nu een prachtig hotel, en verdiend vind ik. We hebben alleen wel de hele dag moeten wachten op het vliegtuig en een taxi. In totaal is het vliegtuig 6 uur te laat geweest, en de taxi anderhalf. We hebben net een pcr gedaan, en zitten nu in quarantaine. Iedereen is moe, maar morgen kunnen we lekker uitrusten en hopelijk Bangkok verkennen. Voor nu wens ik jullie sterkte in Nederland en een fijne avond. Tot snel.Read more

      February 17, 2020 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 36 °C

      Den Weg habt ihr ja schon gesehen.. Jetzt seht ihr auch das Ziel!!! Auf einem riesigen Grundstück liegen 5 Flugzeugwracks, die man auf eigene Gefahr erkunden kann! Eine Familie wohnt auf diesem Gelände in einem der Wracks (davon durften wir keine Fotos machen) und lassen Touristen für umgerechnet 5 € pro Person in "ihren Garten" 😂
      Mit uns war nur ein weiters Paar dort, also hatten wir genug Zeit und Ruhe, uns umzuschauen...

      Bangkok Thursday H3 #365

      June 2, 2022 in Thailand ⋅ ☁️ 32 °C

      I really feel at home here in Bangkok. The trails on the klongs, back alleys, and dirt lots are so entertaining. Circles in parking lots, hot and humid weather, and Thai food . . . you just can't beat it. This trail of 9 kms started with a balance beam water crossing, and running along a smelly klong, dodging scrub brush, and always looking for the next turn. I may end up here long term some day.Read more

      Talat Rot Fai Srinakarin-Bangkok

      March 8, 2020 in Thailand ⋅ 🌙 28 °C

      Über unsere 6 stündige Fahrt von Ko Chang nach Bangkok möchte ich eigentlich nicht wirklich viel schreiben. Unsere wirklich sehr netten Gastgeber der Beach Box organisierten für uns freundlicherweise den Transfer direkt bis nach Bangkok in einem Minibus, hielten wir für eine sehr gute Idee.
      Am Ende beförderte ein Fahrer 11 Passagiere, wo eigentlich nur Platz für 10 war. Den weiteren Verlauf möchte ich doch eher verdrängen🙄

      Der Tag endete dann aber doch noch erstaunlich außergewöhnlich, nähmlich auf Bangkoks größtem und interessantestem Nachmarkt. Den Anfang machen Bars und Cafés in denen Livemusik gespielt wird, dazwischen kleine Geschäfte und Stände an denen es Frucht Shakes und allerhand Thai Food gibt.
      Nach einer Weile immer mehr Stände an denen man von Krimskrams bis Einzelstücken so gut wie alles bekommen kann. Versteckt bekamen wir dann auch die ersten Bullis zu Gesicht😋
      Im hinteren Teil verwandelte sich der Markt dann immer mehr in ein Märchenland für Menschen die auf Oldtimer und seltene, antike Sammlerstücke stehen. Vom 20 Kilo schweren Ventilator aus den 50ern, über die amerikanische Zapfsäule, bis hin zu wirklich tollen Oldtimern gibt es hier alles was das Herz begehrt.
      Den Höhepunkt des Abends lieferten dann aber doch ein paar wirklich sehr tolle Bullis, vom T1 bis zum T3.
      Ich zumindest überlegte etwas länger ob ich mein Flugticket, gegen eine Fahrt durch Nepal zurück nach Hause in meinem neuen, blauen Freund, eintauschen könnte. Majda war dann doch etwas rationeller und ich traurig😂
      Auch wenn sich Hin und Rückfahrt zum Hotel als nicht ganz unkompliziert erwiesen, niemand wollte sich zu so später Stunde noch 45min durch Bangkoks Straßen quälen, wird dieser Abend sicherlich als einer der schönsten in Erinnerung bleiben.

      Hello Bankok!

      February 1, 2020 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

      Very busy, a little smelly and lots of mouth masks due to the Corona virus.

      About two weeks before our flight to Bangkok we read that there was a first case of Corona in Thailand. We where so busy with planning and packing that we couldn’t keep ourselves really updated on this matter. But, arriving in Bangkok was immediately a wake-up call for us. Shortly after getting off the plane we where greeted by a thermal camera and literally everybody wearing a mask. So the first thing that came to our mind was to get out of the airport as soon as possible and buy some face masks 😷

      To keep our family as safe as possible in this crowded city, we avoided all tourist attractions. Especially the ones inside. And say bye bye 👋 to shopping mommy, the great shopping centres are not safe now. Thankfully we had a great pool and the best massage ever. What more could you want 😜.

      Bangkok - Tag 2 und 3

      March 3, 2020 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 33 °C

      Two nights in Bangkok. Diese Stadt ist kaum in Worte zu fassen. Der drückenden Hitze geschuldet ließen wirs am zweiten Tag eher gemütlich angehen. Ein kurzer Abstecher in Chinatown war aber ein Pflichtprogramm, was man jedem nur ans Herz legen kann. Auf dem Foodcourt des MBK-Centers wurde gefuttert was der Rachen hergibt. Um dem teilweise extrem stressigen Trubel zu entfliehen, genossen wir ein paar ruhige Minuten im Lumphini-Park. Das Rotlichtmilieu zählt zu Bangkok ebenfalls dazu, weshalb ein Besuch auf der Soy Cowboy Straße zu jedem Bangkok-Trip definitiv dazugehören sollte. Heute Nacht gehts per Nachtbus in den Süden - ich bin wie immer maximal heiß 🌴🚨🥗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Kleine Info am Rande: Thailändisch scharfes Essen hat nichts mit europäischer Schärfe zu tun. Als leidenschaftlicher Chili-Fan war der oben gezeigte Papaya-Salat tatsächlich das schärfste Gericht, dass ich je gegessen habe, obwohl es laut dem kalifornischen Restaurantbesitzer nur ‚ein bisschen scharf‘ sein sollte. Auf jeden Fall eine wertvolle Erfahrung ☝🏼Read more

      Ex Machina

      December 4, 2021 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

      The klong taxi figured prominently in my plans for my final full day of this trip. I wanted to revisit the Aircraft Graveyard, followed by a wander around Chinatown, and finally to Thipsamai for their famous pad thai. My plan was to ride the klong taxi to the Aircraft Graveyard and also back from Thipsamai.

      I left my hotel around 8 a.m. and made my way to the Asoke Pier. Along the way, I bought breakfast (fried chicken and sticky rice) from a street vendor. When I got to Asoke Pier, I noted there weren't any other people around, and I consumed my breakfast while waiting for the boat to arrive. I waited, and waited, and waited. I looked up the schedule on the information board and online and confirmed that the boats ran on Saturdays. Then, a man walking on the other side of the klong waved to get my attention, and he indicated the boats were not operating. I walked back to the street vendor and asked her if the boats were running. I struggled because I forgot how to say Saturday in Thai. Fortunately, she spoke English (our prior breakfast purchase had been transacted in Thai) and she said that the boats have not been operating on weekends as of late. Drats. I made my way back to my hotel to think about my next moves. I knew that public transport to the Aircraft Graveyard would be slow, and I wasn't willing to deal with over one hour of public transit just to get there. I didn't think fares would be good on Grab (Southeast Asia's version of Uber) but I was surprised to learn that the fare was under $4! I immediately booked a car, and my ride arrived within minutes.

      The ride to the Aircraft Graveyard took only about 20 minutes thanks to the network of elevated expressways. As soon as the driver dropped me off, I immediately noted what had changed since my prior visit in 2017. When I first visited, there were three aircraft: a B747, a mostly intact MD82 fuselage with blue livery with cockpit seats still attached (I could pretend to be a pilot!), and a MD82 with red livery that had been broken up into three sections. The blue MD82 was no longer there. Two parts of the red MD82 were still there, but most of the wings had been removed from one of the remaining fuselage sections.

      I caught the attention of the squatter family living there, and one of the kids let me in after I paid him 200 baht. This time around, I wasn't free to wander the grounds. The kid escorted me, and I felt a little hurried. He also prevented me from going to the MD82. I couldn't understand what he said to me in Thai, but he clearly said "bad" followed by some words I couldn’t comprehend. I can only assume that the squatters considered it bad form to go to the MD82 because it had crashed with loss of life. Ah well. I thanked the kid and left.

      After leaving the Aircraft Graveyard, I made my way to the klong taxi pier at Wat Sriboonruang in the vain hope that it may actually be operating. The food vendor at the pier dashed my hopes when he confirmed they were not operating. I spent a few minutes exploring the wat. Back when I lived in Bangkok, I once hopped onto the klong taxi and stopped at this temple. This was in the days before the internet was widely available, and at that time the klong taxi wasn't on any tourist itineraries, so information in English was nonexistent. I did not know where I was, so I hopped back on the klong taxi and returned to downtown.

      Offenbar hab ich mich an das asiatische Grosstadtleben gewohnt, denn ich mochte Bangkok wirklich sehr und es war kein Vergleich zu meinem letzten Aufenthalt.
      Bangkok ist laut, voll aber wunderschön und es gibt köstliches streetfood.
      Sina war leider wieder krank, weshalb ich alleine die gegend angeschau.

      Another Amazing Week in Bangkok

      November 1, 2019 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

      S2H3 – After the festivities of the Men’s hash on Saturday, it was off to the Siam Sunday H3. Yet another awesome trail that found numerous dirt tracks and hidden pathways in and around the city. I am a paid up member of the Men’s Hash, the Monday Hash, and the Harriettes Hash, but somehow missed the Sunday Hash, so made my contribution, and now completed the set. We had about 30 hashers turn up, and the weather held out just long enough to complete the circle (we did have lightning and thunder rolling in towards us as a warning). As we sat down for dinner, the sky unloaded and the wind blew, and after about 15 minutes it was gone. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4197…

      BMH3 - My buddy Rawhide set a super shiggy trail this evening. Lots of narrow shiggy trails along klongs and patty dykes. Had a little problem at 3/4 of the way through, when the in trail got a little close to the out trail, and some of us were looping for a bit, but we figured it out and made it back in after dark. Fun times in Bangkok. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4200…

      No hash on Tuesday, but I did go out on a 16 Km + scouting hike with Boob-a-lube for over 3 hours. This is the longest hike I have done since (well, you know). It started out an expected 10 Km hike, but soon turned into an exploration as we took some new turns. It was a great day. Later that evening, we joined the hash gathering at the Kiwi Pub on Soi 8. Good to see some old friends there as well.

      BH4 - Not sure whether it was the 16Km hike yesterday, or that I am finally off the blood thinners . . . but I was not feeling so great before the trail tonight. I decided to walk, but after a couple Kms, everything started to feel good again, so was able to run a bit. A short but fun trail from the Ladies, and many dressed up for Halloween. Good fun in Bangkok. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4206…

      BTH3 – Halloween. Trail was disappointingly short, but it was all in the dark, so it had some mystery all its own. Good circle, and fun chatting with the pack. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4209…

      NH3 – An unexpected opportunity popped up, YKM was in town and called a Nonthaburi H3 trail. So off we went. I have not run with the Nonthaburi H3 in 17 years, but it was good to see YKM again. When I first ran with the NH3, there was this horseshoe that was used to determine the next down down, but alas . . . the horseshoe is no more. Unfortunately, the trail on this day was a crap shoot. We actually never found the trail after the first check, and ended up running around looking for trail for the next hour. The only mark I saw after 7 Kms, was a beer stop at a bar about 200 meters from the finish, which had just been abandoned by the hare. Back at the finish, we had several beers and talked about the old days. It all turned out to be a great evening. https://www.relive.cc/view/vMv85y9ZKPO
