As Santa Claus begins his trek from the north pole, I too am beginning a trek of a different kind. It’s not really the way I would choose to spend Christmas eve, but tonight I am on an overnight train to Bangkok, ahead of a flight to Australia on the 26th.
I’d rather be spending Christmas in the company of friends with a glass of mulled wine in my hand and some warm mince pies on a plate not too far away. But unfortunately the cost of flights to Melbourne over the holiday season were so expensive that the only option was to leave on either Christmas day, or the day after (boxing day, as some call it).
So, in order to make sure I don’t miss that flight, I’m heading on this overnight train to Bangkok. I’ve written to Santa and told him where I’ll be so I’m fully expecting there to be a raft of gifts waiting for me at my bedside when I awake at the crack of dawn as the train rolls into Bangkok station.
Christmas day in Bangkok? Could be interesting. Lets see!
366 is coming to an end very soon, so please Like 366 Pictures on Facebook. It’s just nice for me to know there are people out there who enjoy the work I put into this project!
