The time has come.
In a few hours we will be sitting at Thai Airways flight TG 961 that will carry us six time zones in eastern direction where Bangkok will be our first stop.
A bustling capital is waiting for us. And we can’t wait to get there.
A city that has thousands of things to offer, not least when it comes to food and hotels.
Speaking about hotels; Tourism Authority of Thailand in Sweden have made sure that we get the best possible start of our stay when we arrive in Thailand. Therefor they booked us at Centara Grand Ladprao which is located a short distance north of the city center.
The first day means a fairly relaxed pace while we’ll try to get into the right circadian rhythm after flying more than 10 hours.
We are so grateful to have such a pleasant and comfortable start of The Happy Word Tour and after all we know that rougher times are waiting just around the corner when top class flying together with a five-star hotel stay will be replaced with MANY ours on our bikes in daylight along with countless nights in the tent after darkness settles.
But there is no reason to feel sorry for us.
Because this is what we want.
But as we said; it’s not bad to get this beautiful and luxurious start, not bad at all.
So this is what our schedule will look like the upcoming days:
25/9: Leaving Sweden from Arlanda 2.30 PM.
26/9: Arrive in Bangkok at 6.00 AM for further transport to Centara Grand Ladprao.
27/9: Bike event together with Thai Airways cycling club which means a guided tour of the city by bike. We then fly to Phuket late evening.
28/9 – 30/9: Arrange the last things before the start and spend as much time as possible at the orphanage.
1/10: The start of The Happy World Tour takes place at the orphanage in Muang Mai, Phuket around 1 PM.
Let’s do this!
