I am off! Finally decided to buy a ticket to Canary Islands,
but my ticket for €100 was gone, only for €160 were left.
Then I saw an offer for €260 to Thailand and bought it.
The plane took off at 17:30 yesterday (18.09.09) and landed
10 hours later and 9k km away in Bangkok.
The route was something like this:
Duesseldorf-Hannover-Warsaw-North of Black Sea-
At 1:30am when we were half way – somewhere between
Delhi and Calcutta – we saw sunrise...
Meals were delicious, it helped though that I was very hungry.
Pity there was no internet available on board...
We landed at 4:00am (9am local time)
and the first impression was: humid.
Immigration officials gave me standard 1 month visa
and didn't charged me for it, nice.
From airport I took a bus (150 Baht) to the area of the city
where a lot of guest houses are: Khao San Road.
Soon I knew what I was looking for:
it had to be quiet.
I found it at the third attempt, cheap, simple and quiet.
200 Baht a night (100 Baht ~ €2).
It is so simple that it does not have electric sockets in it :)
Wi-Fi costs 50 Baht for 2 hours, should be enough for me
for 2 or 3 days I am here.
