back in Bangkok

back in Bangkok

Posted from Bangkok, Bangkok, Thailand. It took three hours in Bangkok for a bird to poop on me. People say it’s a good sign, but I think the people who say this saw Under the Tuscan Sun and have never been shit on by a pigeon. I tried to brush it off, literally, with a […]

toes, geocaching and parks

Posted from Bangkok, Bangkok, Thailand. I really couldn’t wait to get back to Bangkok. I had been travelling for two months and I was ready to see a familiar face in the hub of SE Asia. I only had one full day in town to visit with my friend Stephanie before her spare room was scheduled […]

meds without a prescription

Posted from Bangkok, Bangkok, Thailand. Before I left Canada I went to see a doctor as I was curious about how my RA was doing. I asked her to order me a bunch of blood work and if it was possible to have my elbow x-rayed. My left elbow has been a royal pain in […]

Grand Palace and Wat Pho

Grand Palace and Wat Pho

Posted from Bangkok, Bangkok, Thailand. Day 2 My plan – visit the Grand Palace and the reclining Buddha at Wat Pho.

This is probably not a typical tourist’s day, but having a local guide me around the city was indispensable. She goes back to […]

Soi Texas

Posted from Bangkok, Bangkok, Thailand. China Town! That’s right. After the long canal ride home and a brief rest, Steph and I went and met her girlfriend at home and then headed out in a taxi. The first taxi driver told us the China Town evening market on Yarowarat was closed on Sunday and wanted […]

Canal boats

Canal boats

Posted from Bangkok, Bangkok, Thailand. The walk to the boats from the Chao Phraya River along the canal was long but worth it. It took us a few moments to find the entrance to the pier, but Phanfa Leelard pier, the starting point where two canals intersect, does not stay hidden from us for long. For […]

Vienna

Posted from Address not found. The train ride from Salzburg to Vienna is a short journey. There are a few train stations in Vienna, with trains departing and arriving from different locations. I wasn’t sure where my ticket would leave me, but the transportation system in the city is excellent and very straight forward to […]
