Welcoming in the year of the dog. Chinese new year has probably started to mean more to me that my own cultures new year, I have more friends on this side 🌎 than at home and so I feel the excitement more. I also enjoyed reflecting my past 4 New Years out here. Gutted I was ill but I still went to Chinatown and held my poor ears and watched the dragon spout fireworks.
We arrived at 2am, exhausted after a full days work, hungry and for me in pain. Flying with a cold was the worst ear pain and long immigration lines (2 hours!) at that time of night nearly killed me. My heart condition means if I'm dehydrated or tired or stressed I faint super easily and on top of the ear pains I was ready to collapse.
สวัสดี sah wah dee khaa Bangkok 🇹🇭 How is it visa run time already?! A weekend in Bangkok for my visa that has turned into 4 days due to a ear infection/ cold leaving me unable to fly NEVER FLY WHEN ALL BUNGED UP it was the worst pain I ever felt in my ears and head during take off and landing ohmygosh and there's nothing you can do but cry ... in the plane.. anyway, while I'm fighting this off with warmth and fresh juices I still tried to make the most of the trip.
