{wt} bangkok





Note to self: make sure to acquire a chic umbrella as in the first image

Formerly known as Thonburi in the country Siam (now Thailand), Bangkok is an optional destination on the World Trip {wt}. (Somehow the previous names have type of grandeur to them....or maybe it is just me). Bangkok, a sultry and enchanting city, connected by its canals,  sumptuous spa's, magnificent roof-top dining and profound spiritual temples is sure to capture any traveler by surprise (at least so I have read... I have yet to find all of this out for myself of course). 

As the rest of Thailand (I really do fancy "Siam" more) is a bit too much for this trip, our history and temple desires might be set on the ancient city of Ayuthaya, defined by its colossal monasteries and magnificent ruins. (on an elephant with a chic umbrella as in the first image.....yes....I have a vidid imagination). Considering I have never been even close to Bangkok, geographically speaking (hmmm in any way to be honest), I find it quite a challenge to picture how a simple day in the city would look like. Though much can be planned and researched, it is the element of experiencing something for the first time, with all the surprising and unexpected moments, that really makes it exciting. (I am quite an avid planner, but the sheer knowledge that there will be an incredible amount of surprises, exhilarates me). 


It is probably the instant inspiration of summery moments that brings eloquence to many travel journals. Somehow I feel that though an ipad, laptop or in some instances even a phone are easy to carry they do feel a bit less personal than the good (old-fashioned) travel journal. One that many years from now will still be opened with the air of  each destination combined with tiny paper details that were once collected (hopefully no dust added). And thus, I am looking for this wonderful journal. One that is simple, not too heavy and just the right size to be carried around and scribble in. 

Such a great World Trip {wt} destination to look forward to. 
This will be the first 15-hour flight of the trip (I think the only one, but then again....the tickets are not booked just yet....and so there is still a small chance another one of these long stretches will be added).
