Curry and Iced Coffee – Bangkok, Thailand
We should be just arriving to the Philippines as this blog goes out, but before I left, I HAD to get my final fix of real Thai Curry and Iced Coffee! From our hotel, it is just a short walk to a great food stall area where there are primarily school kids and locals who work at the nearby hotels and shops. The food selection is wide, but Brad and I found a spot that we love and had to go back!

Will Gets a Haircut – Bangkok, Thailand
Alright alright people – calm down! No, this is not a new AbsoluteVisit or some kind of trick. But, it is a pretty serious topic for travelers – haircuts. Like most people, I used to take getting a haircut for granted. In the US, it is as simple as showing up to your nearest barber, telling them what you want, handing over 15 bucks, and getting on with your day.

Control Our Trip – Bangkok EditionWe asked you on Facebook how we should spend our free day in Bangkok last week. We tried to give you a few fun options to choose from, but being the tough bunch that you are, settling on one activity wasn’t what you had in mind. You repeatedly asked us to do all of them.
You’ll be happy to know that we accepted your challenge last Thursday. We spent the day roaming around Bangkok, making lots of locals laugh and having a blast trying to get through everything. One of the most fun days of the trip for sure!

Wat Phra Kaew Visit, AV #38
Before returning to Wat Phra Kaew, Brad and I were talking about it quite a bit. We were actually knocking it pretty hard which pushed our expectations to an extreme low. I distinctly remember us talking about the fact that it was not very big and just not that impressive. Perhaps these were our memories from our previous trip altered by the unbelievable size of the sites we had just seen in Myanmar. Or maybe we were just in a bad mood. Regardless, we were wrong.
