Thailand II – The Food

One thing I have to point out about Thailand is that they have absolutely amazing food, so I will give you a show of some of all the amazing food that I had during my two weeks there!

We had lunch more than once at the Veranda Lodge, which is right on the beach and have great food and good service (most of the time). I loved their salads, so here is the Beef, Tuna and Bacon salads that I tried – yum!

Beef Sallad (3) Tuna sallad Bacon SalladWho would have thought that a small place on the other side of the tracks in Hua Hin would have some of the best sushi I have ever had? Not me at least! They did though and I wish I could be back there eating some more of it. We went there twice during my stay and it was as good both times, and it looks great as well. The place is called Sakura Sushi and is well worth a visit if you ever happen to be in Hua Hin.

The CornerThen there was the Thai beef salad, the Thai omelet (not that great though), and last but not least the whole fish with lime sauce – oh my god, that was heaven. Some of these places, I do regret that I didn’t write down the names so that I could share them with you, however you tend to be a bit caught up in the moment when on vacation and just enjoying life.

It is called Cantaloupe Island and they have jam sessions in the evenings, with a speaker system set up outside so you can sit there and eat while watching the band through big glass windows.

Cantaloupe IslandI ordered mixed grill kebab, and check out the way they served them;

I will admit to a few late night visits to McDonald’s, I didn’t take any pictures of them though, which was a bit silly as I could add them to my McDonald’s pictures from around the world collection. I did have lunch at Subway one of the days though, and that of course I took a picture of (why on earth did it become fashionable to take pictures of everything you eat?).

SubwayIt was hot in Thailand so there were also all the refreshing fruit, ice teas and cold white wine.

Thailand I – The Road there

When I came home from my down-under trip, I didn’t really expect to go traveling again. However, a friend of mine was going to Thailand to visit his mum that has a house in Hua Hin and I got the opportunity to go, my only cost being the flight.

Like all trips, this one had to start somewhere, this one started at the Copenhagen airport. 1. The bagsOnce again it was interesting to see the power of Facebook, as I posted on my page that I was heading out that specific Monday. One of my former colleagues and friends saw the update and kindly informed me that she was going to India that same day and wondered if we could meet up at the airport – which we did, at O’Leary’s.3. The nachos 2. The beerI feel that a small warning should be issued here; at O’Leary’s (at least in Copenhagen) when they ask if you want the large beer, they do not mean a pint, that’s what I thought, they mean 0.75l of beer – it was though to finish it.

We got to fly a new plane that is longer than usual, even the staff was first timers when it came to this specific plane, this was mentioned during boarding. Can’t really say that I noticed it that much, maybe it just took a bit longer for them to deliver the food.4. The plane 6. The dinner 5. The snacksOf course I also had to watch a movie or two, it’s kind of compulsory when flying and I have to admit that I enjoyed the classics section the most since it included Die Hard 5!

8. Die hard 5 7. Die hard 5Before falling asleep and sleeping the rest of the way, I did manage to get a picture out the window.9. The WingOnce we arrived, I had no thought really of taking pictures, we were met at the airport by a driver that took us on the two-hour car ride to Hua Hin. It was real early in the morning and we were tired.

I’m sorry for the silence

I have been too busy enjoying this over the last couple of weeks.Reading my book

I will also admit that I forgot to bring the cord that connects my phone to the PC so it has made it a bit hard to transfer the pictures. Today is my last day and tomorrow I will be back in the real world, and then you will see what more I have been up to!
