Dan’s Travel Diary

Tuesday, 09 May 2006

Location: Bangkok, Thailand

MapJust a short little update about our travel. H and i have been spent the last three days in Bangkok. Flying around the city in Tuk Tuks, enjoying Thai food and visiting probably half of the 800+ temples. After Japan, Korea, China, Vietnam and Cambodia I must say that I'm as close as one can get to being templed-out ( or out-templed). Bangkok has a huge variety of Buddhas, so finding them and exploring them has been rather fun. We've seen the Standing Buddha, the reclined Buddha, the sitting, the black, the gold, the....and the list goes on and on.

The weather here is a lot better than Cambodia. Still hot, but definitely not as humid. There is also a nice breeze that passes through the streets which makes it a lot more bearable. Today is our last day here and I was hoping we could spend it away from temples, but H has other ideas. He has one more to check off from his list and we will be going there shortly. After that I'll be an afternoon to relax and pack. We will have been here for 4 nights, which gave us ample time to have laundry done. Now we have to carefully pack it all up. I am slowly starting to run out of room. Bangkok is an impossible place to save money in and my pack is filling up fast. Only three-ish more weeks before we get to Austria. I can send stuff home from there with H.

Tomorrow we are off to Chiang Mai. I booked a room in a B&B and i HOPE that it is as nice as it looks from the pictures. It should be a good time.
