After 14 hours of traveling, I finally arrived in Bangkok. Just at the airport, haha. Luckily I booked a hostel at home but I was not easy to find..

Where to find?

Nature and animal friends
Although there is nature in here I miss the good smell of nature. The only thing I smell is food or gas. There are little pigeons and ‘normal Dutch’ pigeons. The animals are not shy and come pretty close (listening to the song ‘close’ right now, hahaha) to you. I saw a small alligator and a bunch of squirls in the park. Next to a big weekend market where I walked for a few hours. I thought I saw a guinea pig but it can also be a squirl without a tail =D. The nature is very pretty and makes pour looking houses shine bright again.

Temples and statues
I spent one day to see the Grand Palace and Wat Pho known as the laying Buddha. Which were both impressive and bigger then I expected. A few girls asked me to take some pictures of them. So I asked them to make some of me. Win-win situation right, haha. It impressive how locals respect their god. They bow for every monumental statue of Buddha.
Bangkok is nothing like New City. Every street was easy to find. Overhear, it is quite messy and streets are far away from each other. Of course I had to find it out by myself. I went to Khao San Road which a friend recommended to me and I am glad he told me. It looked like a small version of Time Square. I started walking from Khao San Road to my hostel but it was to far away. When I start walking the rain decided to start too. It looked very close and some local told me it was just a 40 minute walk. After 40 minutes of walking I was not even halfway. Soaked in water I rent a tuk tuk and because I was walking for so long soaked in water I torn my pants I bought the other day. Lets find a new one! Otherwise I can not go into temples easily.
I enjoyed Bangkok and can talk for hours about it! Now it is time to continue my journey and hop-on a bus. It already cost me three hours to upload these pictures.. 😀
