So, the day I had been waiting for had finally arrived, my phone appeared accompanied by our friends Paula and Big Dave!!! They were coming for a night, or three, in Bangkok, it is probably just as well this hasn’t happened before as a night out in Bangkok can be quite messy. Previously we have ended up in ping pong bars, a NASA space dome nightclub miles away or, a mess after one too many Mekong whiskey buckets in Ko San. Now we are more mature.
Day One and we met them at 9.30am on a Sunday morning and had a beer.
We spent some time catching up and having a drink or two.
We all had foot massages.
Dave fell asleep.
We ate excellant seafood at Magic Max’s restaurant and Dave was Max’s Debbie Magee.
Day 2 and we had wonton soup for breakfast.
We then went on the river boat and skytrain and eventually found the MBK shopping centre for food (and phone accessories for my new phone Paula had kindly couriered out for me…..thanks again, Paula).
Britney met Dave.
We ate some lush Thai food.
We got a taxi back and had a beer in a posh bar.
Paula and I had a pedicure.
The boys had a beer and discussed politics, world peace, cars etc, the usual man chat.
We all drank more beer.
We ate food.
We hugged a lot.
Day 3 and we have coffee.
Dave is shaved by this Thai lady whilst Paula sleeps.
Breakfast is Thai style, egg fried rice or Tom Yum soup.
We attempt some tourism. Honestly, we wanted to see the museum, but it was closed on Tuesdays so we took a photo for the blog….
…..and had a drink…..
We all had a Thai massage, Dave’s masseuse had to get very physical with him.
We had another beer or cocktail……. at least it was now happy hour!
The boys had a pedicure and we had another massage.
We ate some food…..
We drank some cocktails…….
The world is a much better place when you can have a beer and a laugh with your mates and put the world to rights instead of just sitting around, ignoring everyone, playing with your smart phone because you have WiFi.
We loved catching up with them and hope the rest of their trip goes brilliantly. …whatever they decide to do!
