Back in Bangkok!

After 3 lovely weeks in Phuket, we are now back in Bangkok. We arrived Wednesday afternoon at our hotel. It is located right along the river Chao Phraya, one of the main rivers running through Thailand, and a very important logistical point. The view from our room actually reminds me a bit of Canal Grande in Venice. The river is just as busy, if not more. Small ferries, tourist boats, long tail boats, freight carriers etc, are sailing up and down the river 24 hours a day. A fascinating sight that gives us a pretty good feeling of the heartbeat of the city.

Arrived in Bangkok!

Finally the day for our departure came! I’ll admit it was somewhat difficult for me to fall asleep last night. But after almost a whole season of “Downton Abbey” I finally dozed off...

So many thoughts! Will 7 t-shirts really be enough for a whole year? Are all the papers in order? (Checked that SEVERAL times!) Would it be an idea to save copies of our passports in DropBox? (YES!) - and so on! (Don’t forget to turn off the central heating and the water-faucet for the dish-washer!)
