Trip Report Wheels up..... it's off to BKK again!

Jump to last reply

I know, I know, I just left Bangkok in January! But it's time to return. I make an April trip every year to help DS celebrate his birthday bash at Tawandang, our favorite Bangkok night club. This promises to be yet another one for the record books. Last year we had 53 attending. Who knows how many will be there this time! We have managed to convince some friends from home to come on over and join in on the fun..

I'm flying UA from ORD-NRT-BKK once again, in biz class. My upgrades cleared quite some time ago, so I'm all set for some sleep in a nice comfy lie-flat 'bed' all the way there, and all the way back, just shy of two weeks from now.

What is it about going to BKK that I always seem to have work to do. I have two manuscripts to finish proofing. Hoping to get them done on the way over (when I'm not sleeping) so I can free up my time for shopping and showing the newbies around BKK a bit.

Ken (kuranosuke) I am sorry I'm going to miss seeing you. Have a safe journey back to HNL. I'll maybe catch up with you in HNL in September. I just may have the very mysterious DH with me this time. He celebrates a 'big' birthday this summer and I've suggested he join me on Oahu for a week. He just might take me up on it..... we'll see.

John (mag385) let me know if there is anything in particular I should try to get, for Leny. I'll be in the markets a lot, and I don't mind looking around for something. Just let me know.

Weather today in Chicago is pleasant. Looks like a great day for flying! Hoping for a smooth ride all the way. Come on along if you want to read about the markets, the birthday bash, another visit to an orphanage, a new restaurant or two, a second big birthday party for a Thai friend who turns 40 this weekend, and whatever else I might have to write about. I'm back to Adelphi Suites, so no new hotel to review; but I might have to take a look at a couple of new places that might be of interest for the future.

It'll be wheels up in about an hour.... wheels down in BKK on Thursday about NOON Illinois time...... a loooonnnggg ride, but worth every minute of it.

Carol
