Bangkok: Massages and finally goodbyes

My day in Bangkok was busy due to the list of errands: washing, repacking, collecting my condo deposit and transferring money from my Thai account to my UK bank. IMG_20151104_152902The latter was more complicated than I initially thought as I had to withdraw the money (problem – exceeded my limit), then take the cash to Western Union. However, I had forgotten my passport therefore had to get a quick tuk tuk ride to my friend’s flat. The driver offered a cheap price and waited for me to run upstairs. As I handed him the baht, which I decided to give extra, he tried to refused it but he had done me a huge favour. I ended up walking away saying ‘mai pen rai’. He was gobsmacked!

After sorting out my errands, I caught the Chao Phraya boat to Khao San Road to meet up with the British girl I met on the road. I tried to make the most of my time there as I knew this would be the last time in a long time. I ate some street pad Thai and spring rolls then collapsed in a pile to have a massage. Actually, first I had a foot scrub, which I’ve never had before: my feet were so smooth. I wished I had discovered this before. Then I had a foot massage and my last time massage. They were just incredible.received_10208094479619276

Returning to my friend’s condo, I packed my bag, wished her farewell before either of us could get emotional and took the MRT to the Mochit bus station. I brought my ticket, grabbed dinner and caught the overnight bus to Koh Samui. When I stopped and reflected back, I had a mixture of emotions: sad to be leaving a city I have been living in for the last 6 months but excited about the next adventure in to my future. I will always see Bangkok as a second home with amazing memories of the kindest people, cutest kids, delicious food, incredible friends and a beautiful place.
