Bangkok Pagoda

Bangkok airport is huge and modern and all looks very shiny. However, it is quite possibly connected into an alternate reality, with a vast concourse seeming to stretch to infinity. I walked for what ssemed like miles and came to the baggage collection and immigration areas. I didn't need either of these so I walked back and went through the security check for connecting flights.

The first half of the flight was fine, with a good selection of movies and TV shows (I watched How to Train Your Dragon, which was silly, but good fun. Hoping to get some sleep on the second half.

I think changing my socks would be a good idea.

Next stop Sydney!

Enjoy Bangkok!

Also, from all your fellow travellers, "Thank you for changing the socks!"

The last time we had to get off and back on at Bangkok airport we had a similar walk. We timed it at about 20 minutes, which for me is about a mile! Everybody was rather bemused at why we had to do that enourmous round trip; they could simply have directed all the passengers off the plane into where we had to wait to board again.

Who did you fly with?

See you in Melbourne. I won't have any Whisky this time though. :-(
