Without transportation, we would practically be stuck in place for our whole lives.
Here in Bangkok, there’s no shortage of transportation. There are airplanes✈️, tuk-tuks, river ferries🚤, buses🚍, taxis🚖, skywalks, trains🚊, sky trains🚈, songthaews, motorcycles, and many places to walk. The only things I haven’t been on are motorcycles and songthaews. A songthaew is a pickup truck that has benches in the back. Here is a picture:
Last night’s train ride was 14 straight hours! There were some Finnish people in our car and my mom said hi to them and told them that we lived in Rovaniemi last year. The sleeping situation was very interesting: There was a top bunk that folded out of the ceiling and a bottom bunk, and a guy in a uniform and crocs made our beds. Mom slept on the bottom with me, and Dad slept on the bottom bunk across the aisle.
Right now I’m in Chiang Mai and I just had my first tuk-tuk ride. We grabbed it at the train station. It was awesome, but my main focus was keeping my mom in the cab since there was only a very low rail on the side to keep you in.
I also just updated the World on a Plate section of my blog, so please have a look!
