Well actually it was two nights, but on the second we had to get up at 4am to leave for the airport so it totally does not count.
We had no free wifi in Bangkok, and for the first time in forever I had a 48 hour break from the Internet. It really was wonderful.
OK, I lied.
I caved and spent $12 on 2 coffees just to get one hour’s worth of wifi on the second day.
Bangkok was utterly overwhelming in every way imaginable. Every single one of your senses was put to the test, and most often not in a pleasant way at all. We had great fun though exploring the city in the little time we had. We had brought a super cheap $19 Kmart stroller with us for Maggie, I always buy one when we travel with her and just give it away when we leave to someone who needs it. This time around though Maggie does not want a bar of it.
‘No Pram, No Pram. Walk, hold hands.’
It was a little bit warm in Bangkok.
This is OK for the first 5 minutes, but then you realise you are moving at a snail’s pace when the rest of the city is trying to hurtle forward at a million miles per hour. Thankfully, I threw our Ergo into the suitcase at the very last minute, thinking it wouldn’t get used. It’s been a lifesaver.
With her bright blue eyes and blonde hair she wins over the locals in seconds.
From madness to beauty in seconds
Khao San! Baby
We made it through the morning peak hour on 3 skytrains, a ferry, taxi and finished the day off with a stroll down Khao San Road. The Beach is one of my all time favourite novels, and it has been at the top of my bucket list to visit Khao San Road, it was a fabulous night out and the atmosphere on the street was electric..
Maggie was so hyped up that she had trouble sleeping.
Of course the floor will do, even in a 5 star hotel.
It’s exhausting. Really.
Thank goodness for babywearing.
Next stop: Hanoi, Vietnam.
