Bangkok Day 2, Sunday: Don’t worry about us

1/10 of the breakfast here.

A wide selection of drinks. Decisions, decisions!

Where I go bananas every morning.

Hotel restaurant area.

Sundays are for weekend markets. Jatujak to be precise.

These soaps smelled SO good, especially the mango ones.

A crowded and huge area of stands.

A lot for my iPhone to capture…

Not as much to purchase. Ha!

No vacay without coconuts!

Uhm…

The cats here are so dirty but so ADORABLE.

It was only me, Jennie, our grandmother and Emma that went to the market.

Mum and the twins were busy with other things whilst we were strolling these streets.

Coco JJ for the sisters! The original coconut ice cream.

It was delicious and Em is so sweet, she always says thank you in Thai with the proper hand gesture and the citizens just love her.

Tbh, it doesn’t really feel like we’re on spring break here. My family is here and they basically know everything you need to know so it’s very easy to get around. Also, I’ve been here before although it’s years ago!

From one sort of shopping to another! Here at Terminal 21 (shopping mall) where each floor is inspired by a city of the world. San Fransisco was really cool!

I don’t really spend money on anything but desserts here. A black lava croissant and a matcha drink at CODE. Yum!

Good thing that I like walking!

My little local and tour guide. ”Don’t drink on the train, don’t point at Buddha, stand up during the King’s song…” To be continued!

Bangkok Day 1, Saturday: Woke up in Bangkok

Took off from Stockholm on Friday. Very excited about Bangkok, less excited about the 10 hour long-haul flight… This picture was taken a few minutes after take-off just outside of Stockholm.

Travel trousers, support socks (because I’m an old lady) and some polar bear to wear. Your airport outfit is very important… Sweatpants, but make it fashion.

Cheers to rest and recreation, or something like it. Mandatory flight wine a few minutes in. Notice my pale skin in these pictures, I hope to be able to deliver some difference at the end of the trip!

Somewhere over Russia I started to think, and talk. ”I can see how the Cold War was happening down there among the snow-covered fields. Maybe it wasn’t in Russia it, but it looks cold.”

Touchdown Bangkok and off to the hotel. Hilton as per. Jennie fixes it all, great to have a team member in the fam.

Hey, BKK.

Arrived in time for Bangkok breakfast, after midnight Swedish time, but of course we had to try some fruits and sweets before we went to sleep for four hours…

Mum and the kids came to see us around 1:00 PM and then we went downtown together. My sister showed me where they usually go grocery shopping and pointed out everything that she likes, and what she doesn’t: durian!

Uhm, wait a sec. Bangkok or Miami?

Coffee break at The Coffee Club with the crew.

Delicious!

Loved this coffee shop, super fresh and the menu… Wow. Will be back at least one more time before we go back home to Sweden!

Special post-”fika” treat for the kids, on the house. So cute!

Next stop: Lumphini Park. Lots of palm trees, monitor lizards and cats!

A great range of beautiful flowers, too.

So pretty!

For some reason I’ve only been taking photos of fallen flowers so far. Still quite charming though?

Park play date with the siblings!

Caturday. Yeah, I’mma stay.

Beautiful surroundings.

I believe this was taken during the so called ”golden hour”.

Back on the Sky Train headed for dinner. A lot to love with this picture in my opinion, especially the pink sky.

Bangkok International Fashion Week.

Dinner with the family before the jet lagged ones called it a day.

Ready for take-off

Arrived in Stockholm yesterday. Tomorrow, we’re off to Bangkok! Me, my cousin and my grandmother are going to visit my mum and my siblings. I’m so excited! Will try to update the blog, but I recommend following me on Instagram: @jubileejulia where I will for sure give you frequent news. Stay tuned, will ya?
