So yesterday i arrived at Stockholm Arlanda in Sweden, after 17 hours of travelling and i am still very tired. But this trip has been great. Been in Asia for a little bit over 3 months but it feels like so much longer since we manage to do so much stuff.
I will tell you ALL bout it later.. but as a tease.. I have seen a lot of amazing temples, visiting cozy villages, been swimming with sea turtles, met wild orangutans, been mud bathing with elephants…
omg that trip was the best..
So the day has arrived, our last day in Asia, for this time. We had some great 3 months travelling around here but now it is time to go back to Sweden for the summer.. Where we will go after that remains to see.
The good thing is that from tomorrow, i can start updating better and also share more details about our trip!
Stuff like: Where to eat?, where to stay? Where to go? What to skip? What to not miss!
So instead of going to the south part of Thailand and all the islands, we chose to go to the north. A very good decision. We have spent the last 4-5 days in a small town called Pai and i absolutely love it. One of my favorite places this trip for sure. I will write a post later where i share my favorite stops.
Today we are heading to Chiang Mai where we will stay until Tuesday when we have our flight back to Bangkok for the day and then back to Europe.
It has been 3 awesome months in Asia but i am now ready to enjoy the Swedish summer. After all, i will only be able to rest for a few days when im back before i have to travel a little bit again. Not to far this time though.
Any guesses of where i am going after arriving in Sweden?
Hint: It is a music festival that are always going on in the first week of June in Sweden.
We are now getting closer to our last day in Bangkok before flying to the North of Thailand. So far we had a great time! A lot of food, shopping and nice company. Yesterday we went to a really nice restaurant called Above Eleven where we had an amazing meal! Afterwards we went to a Latino club for some drinks and dancing (at least trying to dance for me XD).
I have always been told that Bangkok is not something too special to see and that it should only be a quick stop during your trip to somewhere else. However, i love it so far. Maybe it is because we are staying with friends that lives here and know where to go, maybe because we have read about some of the most famous scams in this city which got us to avoid them (two times only yesterday), or maybe because we have been stressing around most of our trip to be managed to see all the things worth seeing. Or maybe because i am finally allowed to do some shopping.
I have been allowed before of course, but i did not really have any extra space in my backpack, but since this is our last stop, we will buy a big bag that we can fill with stuff and bring back to Europe.
Lets see what we manage to find.. However, Bangkok is absolutely worth a visit!
I have been very bad with the update lately but i have also been very lazy these last days, and all the time i had spare from my laziness has been my working hours. My trip starting to go towards its end and i really just wanted to enjoy our last days in Cambodia before leaving to Thailand, and we really did. I absolutely loved it over there and i had a great time! Will tell you more about it with a long blog post and a lot of pictures when im back in Europe (like i told before i would).
At the moment i am in our friends apartment in Bangkok where we arrived yesterday after a loooong trip. Today i will spend the first part of the day by working, and later i will go out to explore the city, i am very excited actually!
Yesterday we left the island life and was supposed to go for a few nights to Sihanoukville, but one of our new friends here told us that we should take a 15 min ride away from Sihanoukville instead and go to Otres Beach that is supposed to be much better. And i am sooo glad we did, it is totally awesome here! The place we are staying at, the village, the restaurants, the surroundings, EVERYTHING! I will share a lot about this place in a post when i am back in Sweden again. 19 days to go!
