Back to Bangkok

Hello all!

I haven’t blogged in ages! I went to Bangkok.

I have been back in Australia for about 2 weeks now and I am still missing Bangkok so much.

My story..

I was very excited to go to the airport. I couldn’t sleep all that night thinking about my friends in Bangkok… I got onto the plane, with my grandpa, aunty, uncle and two cousins, and we were on our way!
The plane trip was very long and my cousins and we occupied ourselves with game boys and an ipod.

I arrived in Bangkok late at night and was very grateful to be off the plane. I hopped into a bus and made my way to the hotel and went to sleep.
The next day I awoke to a beautiful and warm day. I got dressed and went straight to see my friends. Some of my friends are deaf, so I try to use sign language.

Bangkok hadn’t changed, except for the new MRT- an ultra modern system of underground train travel.

The beautiful day quickly turned into grey skies! Before I knew it, it was pouring and I was running home from the BTS station. It rains very heavily in Bangkok!
Everyday, I went shopping, and after that, I’d go and see my friends…

We went on a rice barge tour. It was very interesting and informative. The tour guide explained about Thailand’s economy. The scenery was beautiful. I threw bread into the water and millions of carp came to eat it!!!

I went to every shopping centre around Bangkok. That’s what I love to do!!

I had such a great time in Bangkok. I miss the food and all my friends there. Since I have been back, I have asked my work for more hours a week. Now I am working 37.5 hours per week, so I can go back to Thailand soon!

Pics coming soon!!
