My trip around the world... India

Travel time: July 2004 - December 2007  |  by Nicole Schemionek

19.12. Bombay - Bangkok

The 19th of dec we flew out from bombay to bangkok which took us a very long time. the flight should go at 9 in the morning and left at 13 o'clock... then we stopped in dehli for another two hours and finally arrived in bangkok at 22 o'clock... this was not very nice, but finally we made it. we took a taxi from the airport to town and it was a great ride... no busy streets, no horning car's, no dirt everywhere... it was great. we booked in a guesthouse near the Kao San road. the room was very good and clean, shared bathroom for 300 baht. the next day we did some sightseeing and went for a beer in the evening... the next day we explored the kao san road and went to the biggest and most expensive shopping mall in bangkok and there we explored the toilets... they were so big and clean en nice... hooh... it even smelled really good. we had some really nice street food... Pad Thai... yeah...what to say. bangkok is a really big city and the tuk tuk drivers try to get you in every possible shop where they get commission... but anyways... the 22nd of dec we drove by bus to krabi and from there to Ko Lante. The bus went at six in the evening and we stopped at 12 for a noodle soup... after that we went to sleep and at half past five in the morning the bus stopped and we had to get out in the middle of nowhere... but it was ok... I took the next wooden bank and went to sleep again... at 8 o'clock we drove with the next bus further to krabi and from there with another bus to the island. we have a very nice bungalow now in ko lante... it is a big one with nice big beds, nice pillows, nice bathroom and it is about 500 baht... but it's christmas and then you can afford that... yeah... christmas eve I went snorkeling the whole time and in the evening we went with some people we met over here to the thai boxing. this was quite interesting... after that chris and me went to a bar to start to celebrate my birthday... I had a really nice pina colada and some chang beer... they played only techno and house music and that's not really what I liked... so we went home early and got a good night of sleep. today we went snorkeling again and then we walked about 6 km to Saladan, which is the main city of the island. there we went for dinner and had a look around. tomorrow we are leaving here to krabi and trying to find another nice spot on another island... It's not much what happened so far... but I can say that the food is delicious and that I really like the thai people... they are really friendly. the weather over here is great... nice sunshine and the water is just perfect... the beach is white and sandy... hihi... I hope to survive some adventures soon and will let you know. Have some nice christmas days out there... xxxnicole
