… and I’m exciting.
Thailand is a very popular destination for us Swedes … we was also the visiting country that made the biggest lost during the Tsunami, 543 Swedes lost their lives – and 3 were friends of mine.
I have never had any plans to visit Thailand, because I don’t like what the country stands for .. that children can be sold for sexual abuse and that they deny that they have any cases of HIV. That goes against all my believes.
One of my oldest friends, that has been living in Thailand for 4 years now, needs help … and I’m going there to help her, to bring her home.
It’s something that was decided this week – I offered to help out – if there is one thing I have plenty off .. is it time.
Now I’m excited over the trip .. it will give me 5 nights in Bangkok. I know maybe it’s not the best time to visit Thailand just now, but it’s now the help needs.
So it’s to unpack the summer clothes that I put away from the winter … get the sunscreen cream and the Aloe Vera Gelly out too.
The hardest thing was to decided which fantastic hotel .. and where I will be staying in Bangkok, but my choices became – Dream Bangkok in the Wattana district.
The hotel has promised me that – they provide haute couture to bring out my alter ego. I’m going to indulge myself in some luxury … and one of the things I will spend my money on is 60 min Swedish massage in their SPA!!! And more than once.
I’m not going to try to see everything, because it that heat and humidity I have to take it a bit easy .. I have made a short bucket list.
*Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
*Grand Palace & Wat Prakeaw
*Soi Rambuttri (where to find the old Bangkok before the skyscrapers)
So on 27th I fly direct with Thai Airways from Copenhagen, a 11 hours flight … not looking forward to that stretch, but I’m today looking forward to take on Bangkok and to see my friend that I haven’t seen since 2010.
I will take off in +12C (2pm) and land in +24C (7am).
“It’s better to see something once
than to hear about it a thousand times…”
