I crown thee- Queen of Bangkok- "Gloria the First"

Can any one de-throne her majesty?

I think Kathie probably can.

Bottom line for me -- I went for the first time when I was in my 30s and fell in love with the country. I had no children and I have had jobs with lots of vacation time (never less than 5 weeks) so travel was possible. And for 6 years I had a job where I went to places like Vietnam and Cambodia to set up health projects so was able to extend and go other places (and always back to thailand).

Bill, obviously you believe as I do that there is nothing on this board that goes "undisputed"!

I think Gloria and I are about even, I may have a couple more or fewer trips, I don't know. I'd have to count from my travel journals. I'm glad to share the crown!

There is a flawed aspect to this thread. There will never be an undisputed anything on this or any other board. Consensus is even unlikely. This is what is so great about this forum. There's ongoing disagreement in a cordial manner. As long as I'm at it, I believe the "definition" provided by BillT does not accurately choose a rightful sovereign or sovereignette. I have no idea what a better definition would be. I'm just sniping, as is my wont.

How about this for a criteria -- how many DAYS have you spent in Bangkok on vacation (not business). Probably the fairest and gives the best idea of who has spent the most time in Bangkok (I mean someone could have gone 30 times but never spent more than 2 days) but is definitely the hardest to figure out.

lol. when bill posted this tread, it seemed rather simple, however, like his other thread about the top ten destinations in asia, it turned into a mixed bag of what about this, and what about that. there is, and always be another angle. lol.

orgy; see, theres another angle, frequency of visit. carol was heading in that direction, now we have spousal participation, and business trip inclusions. lol.

still want to know who bill will crown king.

lol.. yep this is what you get when you ask lawyers, busness people and other profesianals a simple question..

"how many trips over course of thier lives they have made too bkk ?"

Kuran. do you think im in the running or should I be exempt.

In my defence I think taking a 4 hour bus ride too Cambodia, dealing with imigration, looking at way to many people with half of thier limbs. hanging out at a casino then doing the same in revers back too bkk kind of makes it a trip.

or am I also trying too find an angle.?

billT I love your questions they sure do end up hilarious mess.

orgy; since you are an escapee from the witness protection program(having fled mitchell, sd and its great corn palace) you are not eligible for any prizes or any royal title. l0l..

Just as England does not have a King, we here shall crown only a Queen!

We should have been warned when BillT began with "Ok just curious". Only trouble can follow from such a skilled poster.
