Walking Routes in Bangkok - dolls and more



Stop 1: Witthayu Pier - a small pier for the river taxi on Wireless Road - a place to watch the boats speed up and down, or watch the sleeping?


Stop 2: L'Angollo Cafe - a great cafe on the corner of Wireless Road and Phetchauri Road, they have a great selections of coffee here 


Stop 3: Talad Neon Night Market - unfortunately during the day there is not a lot there apart from the row of tents 


Stop 4: Chinese Shrine - next to the Berkeley Hotel (Pratunam), a pleasure finding places like this


Stop 5: The alleyways were twisting and turning and there were more lanes here than what was on the map! 


Stop 6: Coffee Color Cafe -  a colourful cafe I passed after all those twists and turns - I popped in on the way back as well...


Stop 7: Bangkok Dolls was successfully reached - despite being guarded by a dog further up the road, a wonderful find if it interests you!!! 


Stop 8: Pratunam Market - a great market which just seems to get bigger when you are inside - prepared to be there a while - I was and most of the time was trying to get out!


Stop 10: ร้านลาบ ท่าเรือประตูน้ำ - a small restaurant slightly raised but next to the Khlong and Pratunam Pier - a great place for a bite to eat, certainly worth stopping here, outside but not crammed

Stop 11: Pratunam Pier and the river taxi is my way back to where I started, still use the river taxi as a great means to get around Bangkok

Cafe Moda

 

We had seen Cafe Moda a number of times but it was in the evening - today we were there in the afternoon - bingo, it was open.



It was not just a coffee shop though - the shop had a plethora of clothing, decorations, bits and pieces and more.


So don't go in with too much money because you will be sure enough to come out with lots of things!


And the coffee - the latte was wonderful - smooth and just a little sweet. We also received a Hokkaido Dessert to accompany it.


We found a very special place here - thank you.

September - You know you have lived in Thailand when...



The traffic jam on the road does not matter 
- the pavement is empty...

After moving to Bangkok I have become aware of things which are now normal to me because I live here – and subsequently a facebook site about this “You Know You've Lived In Thailand when.....” – https://www.facebook.com/groups/YouKnowYouveLivedinThailandwhen/   
so once a month I will contribute to this. 

A trip to Australia


I needed to leave Thailand because my work changed - so I went to Australia to visit the family.



Lunch at the Valley Kitchen.



We visited when a number of bikers visited with their decorated bikes.



Always time to see the Hornbills



and of course the wrapped trees...



Then onto Wisteria Cottages - a wonderful place to escape.



Jemma fed the cows and collected some eggs - whilst we had hot chocolate at 'Heavenly Chocolate'.



Then there was a visit to the Giraween National Park.



Dr Roberts Waterhole,



the granite arch, the trails



and some Kangaroos of course.



Returning to Wisteria Cottages there was 'Snow' to play with.



Then we visited Wallangara Railway Station


where there the two sizes of railway track DO NOT meet.
