An Escape to Bangkok

Sometimes you just need to run away for a little while. Deal with a different milieu so that, even if it takes up all kinds of energy, it’s a different kind of energy than your every day, so you have renewed energy to deal with what’s in front of you.

That’s what we did. We desperately needed a reprieve from our every day here in northern Thailand. What is usually an escape destination to legions of travelers had become oppressive to us. So we escaped to Bangkok instead.

A city that can be intense and overwhelming to the uninitiated has become a haven for us. (Mainly because of the food. Oh, the food!)

But there’s a lot of beauty in Bangkok too, if you can look past the traffic and the power lines, see past the grit and find the orchids.

We had a trip to the aquarium…I could dedicate a whole post to that. I probably will…

  1. Those images at the aquarium are marvelous! I'm glad you were able to escape to a city where there's an ice cream tuk tuk — so fun!

  2. I know what you mean about little trips. I am quite content with a few days here or there as opposed to a week or two. It looks like a wonderful city and those smile tell us that you enjoyed yourselves.

  3. Beautiful child! Gorgeous photography of Bangkok ~

    Wishing you the best in the day,

  4. I guess an escape to a city is a different type of escape. We found that when we went to Singapore last year. I like the idea of trying different food. And the acquarium you went to looks amazing. And the spirit house – so peaceful.
    Happy travels and have a lovely weekend.
