Adventures in Asia

by Greg & Francie

“One Night in Bangkok…

…and the world’s our oyster!” Well, the song says ‘one night’ but we are actually staying in Bangkok for two nights.  Regardless, the world is still our oyster.  After traveling for about 20 hours we finally got to our destination–the Shanti Lodge in Bangkok.

We decided to leave tomorrow night for Koh Jum (Koh is the Thai word for island) for a few days.  It looks rather remote (no electricity-yikes!) but very beautiful. 

Now I am going to get a Pad Thai lunch for 50 cents.  And trust me, my former co-workers, it is SO much better than that Microsoft cafe food!  Yay for me!

  6. I felt better when I looked up info on Bangkok to share with the kids and saw the real long, long, long name interpreted as “The City of Angels………………

    I told Ethan and Isaac that you wil be laying on the beach because it is summer time there! Ethan wants to know if that means the kids are out of school on summer vacation?

    Jeff says no! What do you say?

  7. I checked the web for Koh Jum and came up with Koh Jum Lodge….. Robinson style cottages…… panoramic sea facing restaurant with sea food, Thai and Meditarrean Cuisine. Simming pool, “salas” for napping and massages!!

    Doesn’t look like camping!!!!

  8. Well, there was electricity between 6-10pm. A combination of solar panels and a generator. Tell the kids that the kids seemed to be having a wonderful time. They play a lot of football (soccer) on the island.
