Everything was great - from the graciousness of accepting I would need to cancel the first night as delayed by a winter storm in Regina, hence missing my flights to Bangkok, to the relief that they were at the airport waiting for me after I cleared Customs, to holding my luggage the next day past their pick up time. I was so disappointed I could only stay one night due to my missed connections as they were full the second night I could have stayed so I moved to the Phoenix Hotel across the lane. The Lilac is a beautifully furnished hotel in lilac and white decor, offered excellent breakfast with a choice of breads for toast, eggs and the most delicious coffee along with relaxing music in the dining room. Cannot wait to stay there again!

From here we took a open minitruck to the Amphawa floating market, not really a traditional floating market there but a lovely touristic, very touristic, place. A round trip per boat for small money, 50 bath, a beer in de hand and visiting some temples. After sunset we took the minivan ( last leaves at 20:30) back to Bangkok Victoria monument. A perfect ...
... to the "genuine fear". After some underwear changing from Beansy, we crossed the river on the river taxi (3baht each) and our next stop was the Reclining Buddha which was colossal. So to summarise, what have we learnt about Bangkok so far: 1. Don't trust a Tuk Tuk man 2. There are minimal road laws 3. All the temples are pretty much the same (according to Aaron aka 'did we go to wo fat today') 4. They love the king a lot more than the queen 5. Lady boys are pretty easy to ...
... and heading to the visa on arrival office. I filled out the forms, got out my passport photo and my 20 USD note, and this is where the first and only attempt was made to cheat me out of some extra money. Next to the window where I was supposed to hand over my forms and money to the immigration official, another man took my papers and insisted the fee included an additional 100 Thai Baht (2.50 EUR). I pointed to the sign on the wall indication 'visa on arrival ...
... brightly coloured, purples and pinks, it didn't look real. It was just how I wanted it to be. I love being under the water with the fish, it's very peaceful. After a few days on the beach and by the pool, a couple of cocktails and some barbecued fish on the beach we headed back to Bangkok on the bus to finish off a bit of gift buying and sort out our luggage for the journey home. And so that brings me to the end of my trip. I have spent 24 weeks and 1 day travelling to some of ...
