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.


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.
