From Jamie's Philippines Pics

We have also had the opportunity to travel to some amazing places in China, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Bali. We have archived all of our travels and living experiences abroad; and if you wish, you can read about our adventures by finding the archives on the right of this page and by checking our Photo Album.

We appreciate all of our family and friends who have stayed in touch and emailed us with encouraging words throughout the year. We hope you will continue to keep us in your thoughts as we continue our adventure of living abroad teaching at an international school. For those who have stumbled upon our site, check out the "About Eric and Jamie" section on the right for more information.

Thanks for checking us out!

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness."
- Mark Twain

"Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends."

Thailand - Day 10 - Bangkok

From Thailand - Day 9 - Chiang Mai

Jamie and I finally arrived in Bangkok at 11:00 am, 4.5 hours late and 1.5 hours late for our bus to Koh Chang. We were frustrated and asked around for another bus to Koh Chang but were told that no other buses left so late in the day. We decided to stay at another hotel in Bangkok for the night and catch an early bus the next day. I can't recall right now the name of the hotel, but we didn't venture out into Bangkok again today. We stayed around and rested, frustrated and even ordered a pizza. Internet was costly here, so I stayed away from it.

Our sleeper car on the train was very nice. They charged us for food and drink, but overall, it was a great way to travel and reasonably cheap. We'll definately take more trains in the future but we'll know not to book another travel until way after the train arrives (at least in Thailand). We were amazed at how late the trains were and how it just seemed ok to everyone. If a train was late like that in the US, the people would be revolting!

We've decided that all things associated with Bangkok are no good. So far, the airport is the best thing about the city.
