Days 250, 251… Bangkok
Day 250… Arriving early in the morning, we make our way back to our hotel in Banglamphu. There is plenty to see and do back in the bustling city of Bangkok. We do a short canal boat tour thing… I get the feeling our guide is near the end and not really caring about organising this go for us anymore… which is fine, I guess. Anyway, after its Starbucks frappuchino cookies and cream… then chill with good wifi and update the hell out of my blog. Day 251… same again as I say goodbye to the group and some special mates I’ve made along the way.
Retcon day 251… ok so my final day was mostly spent updating the old blog. But lunch saw me and Chris head out to grab food and explore Cohan Road… famous in Bangkok for backpackers. There we see lots of copyright infringed merchandise… many pubs with weird ugly statues… and other interesting things before I head to the airport only to discover a 4 hours change in my flight. .. earlier. So the airline find me the next plane out (11.40pm) and so I wait, then board and finally land in India at 2.30am. Out of customs my transfer bus guy is still there! 8 hours later! Good fortune there, I head to my hotel and arrive at 4.30am. Tired… zzzzzzzzz…
Ps… folks… the end date is in sight. .. for anyone in Sydney (ie: most of my friends)… March 29th, 2016. Now if you are wondering why 2 days shy of a full year… well with all the back and forthing across timezones, for me personally it IS a full year… I return 2 days older than I would be had i stayed put… I actually did travel in time! So I guess I will set an alarm that day for like 8am to wake up and stumble down the gangplank, home at last, and have brekky with someone.
