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!
Black Lips, Nay or Yay?
I had such some nice days lately. Been traveling from the capital here in Cambodia to the islands in the south. The last couple of days I have stayed in a bungalow. Since it did not have an AC I have mostly been outdoors and not being able to really update here. But we just moved today to a guesthouse instead, after all we need to get some work done and we could not manage to do much of that in the heat.
Now we have a few days left on this island, Koh Rong. It is such a cozy place and also home for a lot of stray dogs. But these are not unhappy dogs who is desperately wishing for a home. The dogs is having the time of their life over here. Playing in the water, getting fed, cuddling with tourist and locals, and they are so cute and friendly. We had a bunch of visitors at our bungalow when we just moved in. Two dogs and one cat who went playing around like crazy inside. It took a while to get her out 😛
Yesterday i barely left the hotel… and it was great!
I woke up, went out for a nice breakfast, went back home and just chilled in the bed while doing some work mixed with playing some games on my phone.
After that i did not leave the hotel until it was dark outside. Than i went to pick up my laundry and just happened to hear some great KISS music playing load from Hard Rock Cafe here in Siem Reap. So i ran home to quickly drop off the laundry and ran back to the bar to sit down with a beer and listen to the live band that was playing for the night.
Such a great evening, the band was great and they played a lot of good classics and a lot of covers that i wished for. The name of the band i ROCKSTORM if you ever visit Siem Reap and want to keep an eye open in the Hard Rock Calendar. God i miss having good rock music around me.
