Asia Thailand

Thailand – Bangkok, we meet again!

It’s been almost two years since I’ve been in Bangkok, but today felt like coming home. And what better way to say hi to Bangkok again? Yes, the touristy way! After a long flight without much sleep, we gathered our last bits of energy and got on the road.

Bangkok’s Beautiful Buddha’s
A visit to Bangkok is not complete without visiting one or more of the many, many temples this city is the proud owner of. Next to a few smaller temples with free admission, we visited Wat Pho, famous for the gigantic reclining Buddha. Next to this big Buddha, the rest of the temples of Wat Pho are a sight for sore eyes as well, and I could wander around them all day.

The Royal Palace
We decided to pay the King a visit to see how he is doing on his modest piece of land, but unfortunately we didn’t get in. We covered up our knees, we covered up our shoulders, but the strict guard at the gate thought I was still not properly dressed. His English vocabulary only existed of the word ‘no! no!’, so what it exactly was which made me seem unfit for  a visit to his Majesty still remains a mystery. Tomorrow we’ll go for a second attempt, completely covered up. To be continued…

Tuk-Tuks! Tuk-Tuks everywhere!
A visit to Bangkok is not complete without a frightening ride on one of the many Tuk-TWhen the Tuk Tuk just took off and we could still smile ;)uks. After dusting off our haggling skills we came to an agreement and rushed towards our destination. A few lungs full of exhaust fumes later we reached our hostel, happy to still be alive 😉

Pad Thai! I have missed you!
Although I eat Pad Thai quite frequently in Amsterdam, it is nothing compared to the Pad Thai here in Thailand. We img_4760had a lunch at a cute place near the palace, and ordered our first of many, many Pad Thais. And it was just what we had hoped for: heavenly!

Massage, yeeees?
YES PLEASE! After a long flight and strolling around Bangkok we could definitely use a massage! I kind of forgot that Thai massages are quite hard and rough, and I’m not sure as whether to feel relaxed or a bit achy now, but the experience itself is totally worth it, and makes you realize: hooray, I’m back in Thailand!

Tomorrow we will explore Bangkok some more before (I should become a rapper) we fly to Phnom Penh on Saturday. But first: a good night’s rest. Welterusten!

  • Hey Dutchies, so what's the weather like back home?! 😜

The Dutch love to complain about the weather, and, well, if you hear it's 19 degrees and raining all day when it's supposed to be summer you might understand why 😏 And then to think it's 25 degrees and super sunny in Brisbane during winter... ☀️😉🤗

Now that I'm staying in Brisbane for a while I'm going to mix up my recent photos with some pictures taken on earlier trips. I have so many photos that can't be left unshared, like this stunning Singapore skyline sunset! ☼ ☆☽

As you might have seen on my IG Stories I went on a little stroll around my new neighborhood today. This is exactly the reason why I chose to settle in Australia for a bit: so much beauty everywhere! 😍 And it's literally just around the corner! ∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘

  • Is it a Nike ad? Is it a hair product ad? Am I advertising a watch? No, it's just me trying to enjoy the sunset in windy Brisbane 😁

I'm definitely a sneaker kinda girl. In the Netherlands everyone walks around on sneakers and you can even go clubbing on them. And wearing a dress with Nike Air Max? Totally normal. The first time I wore sneakers and a dress in Australia I received a lot of (positive) comments, realizing that this is not the standard here. What's it like in your country? 😊
