A brief travel tale in photos because I love you and I’m lazy.
These photos in no way do justice to the scale of the three major sights I visited. The Reclining Buddha was so large I’m still not sure I believe it’s real. I was right there with the little girls who “oohed” and “aahed” every step through his temple at Wat Pho.
Wat Arun was absolutely marvelous. It definitely inspired me to visit Angkor Wat at some point in the future since the Cambodians actually built this temple when they were in power back in the day.
Finally, The Grand Palace is a sight most tourists go to. After all it is where the Thai royal family ruled and lived for many, many years. The scale of the compound is enormous. I was so overwhelmed by everything I sort of aimlessly wandered with a sweet Welsh girl until we were so sunburned we decided to call it an afternoon.
Posting these photos I’m truly amazed by how much I saw in just one weekend in Bangkok. I can’t believe this is my life!
