Arrival in Thailand

Day 1 - Bangkok

sunny 34 °C

Well after luckily missing storm Barbara and with the planned Baggage Handlers strike called off, we made it to Amsterdam and
then after a short stopper on to Bangkok.
After the overnight, 10 hour flight we eventually arrived at Bangkok Airport, on Christmas Eve morning greeted, not by Santa,
But by a steamy 34c (95f) Sunny day !
However, our joyous spirits were soon tempered as the country was in still in the official 90 days of morning after the late Kings death.
After the hustle of leaving the busy airport, we avoided further hassle as we'd already arranged an Airport-Hotel transfer,
But no sooner had we got into the car, we both fell asleep and awoke 45 mins later as we approached the Hotel.
After unpacking and a couple of hours sleep we headed out into the city centre.
We walked to the famous Khao San Road district to do some "Christmas Shopping".
It was strange Christmas Shopping in 95f sunshine without freezing and wearing loads of clothes :-) wearing a T-shirt was loads better.
We ended the day out in the city centre, again walking round in just t-shirts followed by Pad Thai and a cold beer, well I had to settle for a lager :-(
