+ Travel in a world of adventures
Read my full day to day blog of my first big overseas solo trip.
Day 55 (30th Jan ) Train arrived in the morning and we all went back to Bangkok Central Hotel. Some people had to go and find their new hotel they were going to stay in before leaving tomorrow to either go home or to carry on to a new tour. A few of us met back at the hotel to go for a walk through the streets of Bangkok to explore a bit of the waterside and China town.
It was packed, so many people in tiny little alleyways and had their stores packed with everything you could possibly need. It was extremely hot and I stupidly still had fat pants on from the air coned train and had not drunk any water or liquids yet and was feeling dizzy so decided to make the long walk back. Thankfully once back at the hotel they let me check in early so I had a shower and got ready before meeting the new group down in the lobby.
It felt strange meeting new people in a building we knew and I still had Sophie, Taylor and Will from my last group there and Sunny ! He ran the all the dos and then don’ts again before we went out for our traditional meet and greet dinner. I had musaman curry and rice. Parie says that her new group and some of our old group were at a bar around the corner in the backpackers street which was packed to the brim. It was overflowing with people, so crazy with lady boys everywhere and everyone just downing buckets of alcohol. Not my scene but it was so good to see Laura and Morgane, Emily and Parie from my first group which felt like I hadn’t seen them for ages but it had really only been a couple of hours since this morning. We all went to a few different places before Parie and I lost everyone and Sunny who was meant to get us home so we waited around for a bit where we said we would meet but then just ended up hopping into a tuk tuk back to the hotel where I had to say goodbye to Parie :( it was so sad but I just have a feeling that I will hopefully see her one day.
