• Back in Bangkok

    On the same day we had arrived back to Pakse from our three days motorbike loop through the Bolaven Plateau, we took a songthaew (kind of a pick up van with two benches very common in Laos as a local bus) to the Thailand border crossing of Vang Tao. Once in Thailand again, we decided to try our luck and increase our hitch hiking experience and got a free ride to Ubon, the closest railway station with a daily train service to Bangkok. Our expectations of getting an sleeper train and have a good rest that night could not be accomplished and we had to complete our 10 hours night ride in a quite small and hard 3rd class sitting bench. One of the inconveniences of travelling without any fixed plan or booking-security, but who needs that…? At least not us.


    So, we arrived in Bangkok early on the next morning tired and close to a neck contracture from the many contortions in the train. We catched a bus to Kao San Road, the tourist area of the city, got a room and went to eat something. We were back in Bangkok, something we had been secretly expecting in our mind. Somehow, we love this city and we still have so much to discover here…
