Bangkok – great to be back

From the moment we stepped off the plane in Bangkok we were given the warmest welcome including the friendliest greeting from the immigration staff. Certainly great to be back in the “land of smiles”.

4 nights exploring Lat Krabang in Bangkok. Interesting masks are no longer mandatory but everyone wears them all the time. They will even put a mask on when on when riding a scooter but not a helmet………safety priorities……??!

First coffee in Bangkok
Noodle soup
We love noodle soup
Brekkie on the river
Great hotel on the river

Life on the river canals.

Been 3 years since we with with our friend Leo

After a great few days in Bangkok we hit the road yesterday. Getting used to being backpackers again not cycle tourists is strange especially yesterday catching a Songtheow to the train station, 2 trains, a taxi, and a bus to Phetchaburi where we arrived yesterday……… Not without drama though.

Songtheow to the train station
Ready for the bus ride

3/4 into the journey a terrible noise from under the bus right under where I was sitting. Driver pulled over and the exhaust had half fallen off.

Driver inspecting the exhaust

One kick of the exhaust to break it off and we are back on the road with the new passenger. No one seemed the slightest but concerned. Got to love travel in Thailand.

Exhaust now riding in the aisle

Here in Phetchaburi for two nights before onto the costal town of Cha Am tomorrow. The Thai public holidays and long weekend will then be over so things will be quieter when we arrive.
