Thailand has always been and “easy” place for Australians to go to on vacation. It’s warm, cheap, a 9 hour flight from Australia, and super friendly. So whenever I’ve been here we bump in to lots of Aussies. This family trip has been planned since March this year. It was actually my 79 year old Dad’s first trip out of Australia. So everything has been new and interesting for him. It’s mostly been fun for me watching him enjoy seeing another culture. He;s fascinated by everything.
We came to Thailand for my sister’s 50th birthday. But we also orchestrated a little surprise for her and my parents. There were just the 4 of us coming here. When we arrived at Bangkok airport I had to delay them from leaving the airport for one hour for one of my friends from Melbourne to arrive on the flight from Melbourne. But in actual fact it was my other sister arriving to come on our vacation with us. My sisters are always the life of the party so having them both on the trip was going to make it a lot more fun. Our week long stay in Bangkok was a lot of fun. It was full of shopping, touring, spa treatments and lots of eating. Bangkok is a crazy city and everyone loved it.
Here are just a few of the pictures I took a long the way.
