Via Munich and Bangkok
08.02.2012 30 °C
Well after spending an extra day in Slovenia than I had expected, it was a dash back to Munich the same day as I was due to fly out of Europe. Fortunately on a mostly lovely day in Munich (with a bit of rain at times) gave me a chance to see a little more of the city.
Bangkok was just as humid and crazy as ever. I stayed a little out of the city but it was pretty accessible on the skytrain and for the first time in Thailand had comfortable beds and decent air conditioning. Probably a direct result of the fact I was prepared to pay more then $10 a night. Anyway, got through a bit of shopping, visited the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew (hope my spelling is ok) and generally had a good two days.
Then it was back to Australia for my masters graduation!
Despite not making it on the planned Beijing to Kathmandu via Tibet trip, this was a fantastic detour through a part of Europe that had been on my 'list' but just hadn't got to yet. Eastern Europe is fascinating, Croatia was just stunning and very friendly and beautiful and Lake Bled was a fairy tale. Thanks to those that may have read this blog and I will look forward to the next adventure!
Happy travels peoples!
