Remember my excitement after I found out I had won second place of the Holiday Inn Stay Together Photo Contest last year?
Well…I’m finally going to use the winning voucher to stay at their hotel. Air tickets are paid, the two hotel rooms they provided are confirmed…we – and by we I mean my two brothers, Lil’ A and myself – will be flying there this Wednesday, March 30th, 2011.
The voucher is actually about to expired – next month! But since I just started a brand spanking new job right after I won, I had to postpone the trip to Bangkok until now.
Glad to know the boss had given me an a-okay to take my leave for this even telling me to enjoy it and take lots of pictures. Yahooo!
One of my brothers was a bit worry about the language barrier and getting lost since their written language is not in Latin. Had to shoot down his worry wart self with jokes. If I can survive China for 2 months then I’m sure we would all be doing just fine for 3 days there. Armed with a calculator…haggling shouldn’t be a problem. Map and address to the hotel will help to track our way back after exploring the city.
It’s been awhile since I last travel…last time was our short visit to Singapore so this much needed short break would be just what I needed.
Can’t wait to see all those grand temples, tasting real authentic Thai food, and do just a little bit of shopping therapy.
My next posts would be about Bangkok and our adventures there so stay tuned!
