Pink taxis? Only in Bangkok!

Sun 7th August 2011

Today we were treated to a truly authentic Bangkok experience. A ride from the airport in a pink taxi. After the long flight it was great fun to see how the locals do it, spoilers and all.

Hooray! Finally made it. With the long flight over time for a relaxing journey into Bangkok. Or maybe not; what with no seatbelts in the back seats, taxi man on his mobile and no holds barred driving, it as a bit of an eye opener!

Mr taxi man was nice though. Look at the smile on his face. Must be because he drives a metallic pink coloured taxi!

Wow, that was a long old flight. And after being squashed for nearly 11 hours, it made the ride in a fluorescent pink taxi all the more enjoyable. In Bangkok, apparently they don’t wear seatbelts and our driver even posed for us before he sped off into the mad evening traffic.

 

One week to go!

Sat 30th July 2011

In 7 days time we’ll be high tailing it to the airport to catch our 10.15pm flight to Bangkok. Then the adventure really begins! With the prep almost done, all that’s left to do is pack our (extremely small) rucksacks and say our goodbyes. It’s the final countdown!

Seven days to go… guess I better start buying a few things then! I’m not quite sure how to get all these things into a fifty litre bag, but where there’s a will there’s a way. I plan on reading the books in the image on the eleven hour flight… eleven hours on a plane?!

I can’t believe we’re into the final week. How do I feel? It’s hard to describe and few adjectives can suffice. This is a life-long dream – about to be realised (no exaggeration)! It also means my stomach is in knots, but occasionally flipping with excitement as if to remind me this is going to be an amazing adventure. I can’t wait to start filling this blog with pictures and say hello to the world! :)
