Day off diary

Day-off diary: A trip to Asia

Okay, so it’s not quite a ‘day off’ but more like a couple of weeks off. But, seeing as I rambled on about my holiday on my blog quite a few times before I went, I thought it was only fair I shared a couple of snaps from my trip! I went to Bangkok, then flew to Siem Reap, got on the dreaded night bus down to the city, Phnom Penh, and then flew back to Bangkok for a night before we came home.

The day we arrived in Bangkok, my friend who I knew from uni who lives there let us know that it was Songkran – Thai New Year the next day. “Prepare to be soaked” was what he said, although I don’t think you can really understand it until you are there. We were right in the middle of it, by Khaosan Road and it’s safe to say that I don’t think I’ve ever seen a festival as mental as Songkran. You couldn’t walk out the streets without buckets of water chucked over you, let alone just go out for a casual walk to sight see! It was great to experience, but we were slightly glad when we left and headed to Cambodia. Thankfully, Khmer New Year isn’t quite as crazy…
