First stop Bangkok

semi-overcast 33 °C

Hello Family & Friends!

Here I am in Bangkok, first stop before the real adventure begins. Arrived amidst a monsoonal storm last night and due to a little misunderstanding about locations of my hotel with my taxi driver, arrived at the Pathumwan Princess Hotel resembling a drowned rat. Had a wonderful flight and felt very spoilt sitting in business class. It sure was nice to be on the other side for a change!. The new Bangkok Airport is amazing, apparently now the largest in the world. Reminded me somewhat of the Frankfurt airport ( You know that one well Boss!). However latest reports are that it is sinking in places! The hotel is fantastic ( Thank you Bindsy for the recommendation, love the free wake up coffee in the lobby!) and for those of you familiar with this town, just next to the MBK centre (aka shoppers paradise). However, shopping will have to wait...my backpack will just not allow it. Having a relaxing day...foot massage, a swim and a nice lunch at one of my favorite spots here. Early start tomorrow...off to Phnom Penh on the first flight out....so my journey begins.

Will be in touch soon....take care, Janie x
