Had my early flight to Bangkok this morning. Bali has quite a nice airport, with some interesting displays. Although I must say nothing like Koh Samui, that airport really is the most memorable throughout Asia I think. Met a Bangkok local on the flight called Ae. We were seated next to each other and chatted the whole flight.
It was a good flight. And Ae and I got along so well I invited her for a drink at my hotel. Ae agreed, as she was not in any hurry to go home yet. So we hopped in a taxi and went to my hotel. I checked in, grabbed a six-pack of beer in the little lobby shop, and we went up to my room.
Ae turned out to be an interesting lady. Born and raised in Bangkok, but she always wanted to travel. Hence the recent Bali trip. So we chatted about her travels, drank a few beers and spent a pleasant afternoon together.
I will spend a few days here in Bangkok before heading up north to Chiang Mai. Plenty to see and do up there. I have booked my ticket and I’m looking forward to seeing Chiang Mai again. It has been a long time since my last visit.
