koda seemed to know that we were about to leave for a holiday. she looked sad and a bit sulky the whole day… i always feel bad that we have to leave her at home whenever we fly out for a holiday. i wish someday we could easily bring our pets along during travel… maybe someday.
anyway, by 6pm, we were all packed and ready to go. the travel plan for this trip required a lot of moving around.we were going to do city/town-hopping, where we only stay 1-2 days at one place. we were going to be in and out of the trains and public transportation a lot. so we had to pack lightly. we ended up with one medium-sized suitcase (we were going to go with a large backpack, but it turns out that our old one is not big enough), one small backpack for aina, one regular-sized backpack for ari and one hand-carry tote for me. oh and a snowy, of course.
we took a cab to the airport, checked in and had our dinner there before boarding.
we flew Thai Airways, so we had a 1.5 hour transit at the Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok. it was our first time visiting Bangkok’s airport. i heard a lot of good things about this airport. but since we landed nearly midnight, all the shops were closed… there were barely anyone there. we had to walk from one end to another, and it was faaaaar… this airport is BIG!
along the way, though, there were pretty paintings and drawings along the corridor. they were lovely, and we ended up taking a few pictures in front of them.
i think they’re a nice contrast to the glass-and-metal-look of the rest of the airport.
More photos of that day are in flickr’s 14/06/2015 photo album.
