One of my favourite days in Bangkok was when we went biking in Bang Kachao, a green peninsula a bit away from the city centre with less traffic and more calmness, greens and dogs.
A BIT OF SUNSHINE, OCEANBREEZE AND HISTORY.
Hanko is Finlands southernmost town and if you ever visit it, I would also recommend a visit to Tulliniemi. It is a nice walk through some forest and cliffs all the way to the open ocean at the southernmost tip of Finlands mainland.
CHIC AND COSY
I can honestly say this was the most fabulous cinema experience I have had so far.
BIG, FAT AND SCARY
I was really hoping to see some lizards when we went to Bangkoks green lung, the Lumpini Park. I had read that a few years ago there were so many monitor lizards in the park that hundreds were catched and transported to other places in order to decrease the population. To my joy some of them were still there enjoying an easy life.
HISTORY WRAPPED IN HEAT
We had read that Ayutthaya, the former capital of Thailand, would be a great day trip out of the city, so one day we sat on a very old and rough train that would take us to the ruins showing a part of Thailands history.
MESMERIZING DETAILS AND SPIRITUALITY
On our third day in Bangkok we took a water taxi and headed to see two of the many temples in the city.
One of the attractions I really enjoyed visiting in Bangkok was the Jim Thompson house. The house and the surrounding garden is a nice lush break from the noisiness of the city.
AMONG SKYSCRAPERS AND CROWDS
During our winter vacation I wanted to go to a place that would be completely different from our everyday schedule, plus it had to be warm, so after some searching we decided for Bangkok. Bangkok is one of the the most visited cities in the world and it seemed both exotic and quite cheap. We went there during the hot season in March.
STRIPES, PATTERNS AND FEATHERS
During our trip to Prague we spent one day at the Prague Zoo. The zoo covers 58 hectares, and it definitely takes a whole day to walk through everything. We spent around 6 hours there, including a lunch break, and did not manage to see all of the animals. When the afternoon came upon us our tired feet demanded more attention than the parrots and kangaroos we had left, so at that point we decided to call it a day. They do have small trains you can ride from one place to another but for some reason we didn't think of using them. (It was probably the heat.) All in all Prague Zoo is definitely worth a visit, just remember to put on a pair of good walking shoes!
One place I really wanted to visit when we were in Prague was the Petrin Hill. It's a green and lush place that serves as a breathing place from the noises and lights down in the city. On the hill you'll find the Observation Tower or the "Mini Eiffel Tower" from where you have a great view of the city.
My name is Malin. I like to take photos and make illustrations. My aim is to spread feelgood through glimpses of me and my boyfriends trips and travels, spiced with a few illustrations. We are based in Finland and our trips go both near and far. Enjoy! :)
