On the Ferry

I’ve always liked cities where ferries are part of the public transport system. I loved to take the ferry to Manly from Sydney’s city center. Taking a boat trip down the Elbe in Hamburg was a nice way to get around too. And yesterday we discovered what a convenient way of travel Bangkok’s ferries offer. Continue reading


Expensive way to Bangkok

We arrived this morning at 5.45 am in Bangkok after a 18 hours long journey. Michael got out of the bus to get our backpacks. I stayed. I had taken of my glasses to sleep and couldn’t find them. I looked through my little backpack, looked around (obviously without glasses so half blind) and then they rushed me out of the bus.

A Bug story

I admit, I don’t like animals that much. Pets that for others are so nice, so sweet, so good companions, for me are, well, just pets. I categorize animals into no leg, two legs, four legs and more legs.

  • When it comes to no legs (from snakes to fish) I don’t mind. Of course a big snake in my bedroom would get me screaming, but well, they are most often dangerous aren’t they.
  • The two leg category (birds mostly) I don’t care and mind and four legs are ok too. You might even hear me say that a particular cat or dog is cute. But than I’m allergic to animal hair so no much love here either. I actually find the little geckos that are all around here quite fascinating but well again also only outside of our bedroom.
  • And than there are the more legs ones. I hate them. Mosquitoes are just annoying as are flies or bees. But spiders and bugs literally bug me. They are just disgusting.

Having said this, why do I mention it in my blog?
