Day 128: Unexpected Last Day

Our last day in Bangkok was …. unexpected. We woke up really late and left the hotel for some delicious lunch. Man oh man was it good! We then decided to see Captain America at a fancy shmancy movie theater. We got reclining chairs, blankets, pillows, and alcoholic beverages! Captain America was goooood and our…

Day 127: BKK is Massive

Two perfect examples of how big Bangkok really is are the Siam Paragon Complex & Chatuchak Market (Weekend Market). We started our afternoon by heading over the the 35 acre Chatuchak Weekend Market.  Yes, 35 arces of thousands of people, vendors, humidity, and chaos. You can literally find ANYTHING you need and want at this…

Day 126: Old City & Night Life

 These trips we go on are more than just relaxation and partying. While we do get in our fair share of both, we also have a vast appreciation for all cultures. I really enjoy a good history lesson. Traveling to places with deep cultural roots on display like we’ve seen in Thailand, feeds my soul. …

Day 125: Sawasdee Ka Krung Thep

“Sawasdee Ka    Krung Thep” =         “Hello          Bangkok!”          ……. or should we say: Sawasdee Ka “Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Phiman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit”  <– Yup! That's Bangkok's real name.  What does that mean?…

Day 124: Khob Khun Ka Samui

“Khob khun ka” = thank you. Samui and the staff at Centara Grande treated us so well. We spent our last day laying on the beach … all day. It was perfect, just what we needed. Unfortunately I had a toe injury from the night before that kept me from dipping in the water one…

Day 123: Ang Thong National Marine Park

We had the opportunity to visit Ang Thong National Marine Park.  Judging by the pictures it may seem like all we saw were some island rock formations *snore* — but no, it was beautiful! Ang Thong National Marine Park has a total of 42 islands, each has it’s unique shape and awe about it. The…

Day 122: Around Samui

We were able to see more of Samui yesterday (not just Chaweng Beach). Here are some of the highlights: Big Buddha, which was stunning. How in the world do you even begin to build something so big and so detailed.  We also learned that the Thai people have a pretty good sense of humor because…

Day 121: Chaweng Scenes

It was a busy 3rd day in Samui! We walked sooooo much! We started by venturing outside the resort and onto the Chaweng Walking Street. The first think you quickly notice are these fascinating spirit houses outside of homes and businesses. Click the link for more information about them. We stumbled upon an art gallery…

Day 120: Traditional Lazy Day

Whenever we have a beach vacay the 2nd day is always the lazy day. We basically sit on the beach and do nothing (except tan and listen to music). Before dinner we sat at the bar with our fav bartender. I knocked over two drinks *embarrassing*  The first spill was the spirit’s fault and the…

Day 119: DIONIS does Samui

We landed in Thailand safely early Saturday morning. The Koh Samui Airport is sooooooo cute. It has an open airport concept and doesn’t look like an airport at all. Some of the other passengers thought it was a hotel. When the plane landed, we were escorted to a mini bus and driven to the terminal.…
