Well after a year of organising, training and preparing the time has come for us to jump on a plane and get this adventure started. Our first stop is Bangkok Thailand to celebrate Songkran festival. We all head to the Perth International airport, have breakie with our family and say our goodbyes. It has been a BIG year for all involved in the BeyondEverest project and I would like to send out a BIG thank you to everyone that has supported us along the way. You can still donate to our supporters page and help us raise much need funds for beyond blue.
We land in Bangkok after a great flight with Thai Airways, I would recommend Thai Airways, the service is great and the aircraft was new and very spacious. Saying that they are a little more expensive than I am normally used to, I tend to lean towards the budget airlines to save money. The Taxi rank at the Bangkok airport is hectic but it works. There is a lady that sits and organises the Taxi’s for you and they even sort out the fare before you get in the Taxi. Just a TIP for Bangkok, sort out the fare before you get in a Taxi or ask for it to be metered. Some taxi drivers will attempt to inflate the fare for tourists.
One of the things that got my attention were the power lines. You see I am a Electrician and I work on High Voltage Power Lines. I just loved how the power lines are just loose pieces of wire tied together and strung over poles and in amongst trees. I understand that they use insulated wires here but it is so different that what I am used to working on and that is why i love it.
Day 1 in Bangkok pretty much just had us exploring the market place, a beer at the pool bar and quick swim. As it is Songkran we were treated to a free dinner and traditional music and dancing.
As you know I have been playing around with Vlogging as well. I am going to attempt to Vlog a bunch of this trip and hopefully I can get it all up on here quickly. Anyway here is the first day of our adventure.
