I am joined in Narita by flight attendant friend named Johanna, who will be with me for 10 days of my month long journey. Johanna has never backpacked before and introducing someone new into my world is fun and exciting, she is very cool and open to what ever I have planned , so I'm sure to show her the experience of her life
We arrived in Bangkok late and hit the streets for a beer and some people watching, it was 130 am when we headed out and the streets were packed! This area is sensory overload for anyone, no matter how many times you have been here, its fascinating and full of life and excitement. A couple beers later, we only got 4 hours sleep that night.
The next day was full of exploring the area of Khao San Road, the backpacker district where I stay when I come to Bangkok. I only stay in this busy city for a couple days at most, as they say one night in Bangkok can make a grown man crumble, and after spending two nights here, you really can see why.
Last night we went out and experienced some Bangkok nightlife, and were invited to watch a game of local Ping Pong...fascinating ....:) Today we are off to an ancient city outside of Bangkok called Ayuthaya. It is an old city of now ancient ruins, resembling a smaller version of Angkor Wat. We will be taking a local train two hours north ( no air con, its local!) but Bangkok is very pleasant right now, with clear skies and a nice breeze, quite a treat for this city.This will be the start of our journey up north , the next day we will be taking an overnight train to Chiang Mai to visit temples, and play with Tigers and Elephants, I cant wait.
