Bangkok - City of 7/11s

A little less sleep deprived Aussie & her California room mate set off to explore this morning, we made it to the hotel reception where we bumped into a couple of others from our tour. So we took a day tour to Damnoen Saduak where we took in the beauty of the floating market (through gritted teeth for me but no ice burgs in this canal).
Some took in a cheeky elephant ride, others like me sat in cool & sipped a cold drink.
But the best part of the day by far was getting to feed & play with a 10 month old tiger cub or two. Was an amazing experience & I'm pretty sure none of them were drugged.
Now about to met others & no doubt get wet it's raining & they are celebrating Songkran the water festival

Should Have Gone To The Spa!!

I'm exhausted, tried to roll my ankle, was shat on not once but twice by pigeons (serious note of warning do not stand under power lines) and I got lost - yes laugh all you want I'm sure I will be tomorrow when I sipping cocktails by the pool or having a massage

Ill set the scene......I arrived at the hotel about midday after a crazy taxi ride, very tired (haven't been sleeping well in the last week topped with a couple hours broken plane sleep) and I know better no sleeping until bed time so the sneakers stayed on and off I went on a little explore. In that one hour I was out I discovered there are a lot of friendly Asian mostly males (next time I'll wear a sandwich board advising you I'm from Australia, Western Australia you know there a whole other side to the east coast) and our humid week did nothing to prepare me. I didn't go too far, didn't brave crossing the road but enough to stretch my legs, roll my ankle on uneven ground & get some air (it's not fresh). An hour or so later I got brave and went again this time I asked for a map (well that was next to useless) I figured if I can get across this first road alive I'll be fine. I managed to stumble across an old fort which is where I was kind of going the rest I stumbled upon by pure chance, I got lost but lucky I seem to have a good sense of direction and after a lot of detours I found my way back to the hotel.

Here's some pics of my day

Hey welcome to my travel blog!
The plan instead of sending a group email to numerous addresses ( I usually manage to forget someone) I'm going to try and use this blog to keep family & friends up to date with my travels.
Next trip you ask ...... 4 months & 1 week but until then here's some of my favourite pics from my most recent trip to Vietnam & Thailand in December 2013/January 2014.
