There is no thought of Bangkok without the lyrics of “One Night in Bangkok” which was sung by Murray Head rattling through my brain a few
million times. I found the singers name from Wikipedia. In all honesty, I have never known who actually sung this life-changing catchy song. Okay, I am exaggerating a little and already getting way off topic. This means that I will have to keep this short… unless you want me to go on and on about other songs that have gotten stuck in my head over the years.
Time flies, my ten-year American passport was within 6 months of expiring. (That was probably the weirdest segue way ever.)The funny, strange not haha funny thing about passports is if you want to venture to a country outside your home country, most of them will not let you in if your passport is within 6 months of expiring. Chad, Z, and I have some travels in the works this year so I needed to go in the month of January to renew my passport at the US Embassy in Bangkok. Instead of just going by myself, we decided to make it a longer family trip. No road trip this time though, sorry folks, we decided to fly this time.
The first day in Bangkok, I went to the Embassy which was just a short scooter taxi ride from our hotel. What a thrill! It was my first time on a scooter taxi and it was an absolute blast. Logically I knew it was extremely dangerous, but in knowing that, arriving at my destination was a complete adrenaline rush. Needless to say, I didn’t need coffee that morning.
The process for getting my passport was so simple and quick I was able to take a scooter taxi back to our hotel (WHEE!) and grab some breakfast with Chad and Z.
Now I am just going to share a few photos from what we did while we were in Bangkok and then I will come back and link to the posts I share in the future about our trip. There is just too much that I want to write about each thing to share in one post. So here I go—
Come back next Friday for the first installment of longer posts about our recent trip to Bangkok in 2016. Thanks for reading and feel free to leave a comment. Let’s chat!
