Nai Yang - Phuket - Bangkok - Doha - Geneva
09.03.2012 - 10.03.2012
View Thaïlande on CatAndre's travel map.
On the next day we take a (bad) breakfast and head off to the Nai Yang beach after taking a bac (extremely small ferry with a rope) to cross the small river between the hotel and the beach.
The beach is great, completely empty or almost except for the few white crabs very numerous here... We get our last sun bathe before heading out for a loooong trip back home.
It was too short.......
We reintegrate our smaller bags into our suitcases which proves to be a truly difficult task for everything to fit back in (+ of course the few things purchased here and there along the road ).
Our first plane has 40mn delay... I finish Asimov and buy the next Millenium and The Preacher by Lackberg. I pay 3500 baht for my overweight luggage.... Thank you AirAsia!
We have lots of time (or so we think) in Bangkok airport so we figure we check in, get a drink at Mr Lee's franchise, get a 2h massage (which will be only 1h after spending too much time at the cosmetics duty free for my stuff and Manue's Shiseido creams...).
We look like madmen in our massage pyjamas but decide to head to the restrooms strolling in the middle of the airport nonetheless :D
After a good massage and last-minute purchases (pashminas for Nathalie, Sabine and Marianne) we barely make the flight for Doha.
Onboard, we eventually leave 40 minutes late (not reassuring since we have only 50 mn transfer time in Doha). The kids are crying and yelling, the entertainment system is broken, the people are going crazy so we have some wine and get drunk and laugh to try and alleviate the lengthy trip...
Our transfer time in Doha is extremely short but we make our plane anyhow. And then we sit in it for an hour because although the steward had told us to hurry up as we were the last ones we were still waiting for the true last passengers... The next plane is less nice but more quiet and we get a bit of sleep. Until we reach Geneva...
Incredible but true, we get there with our luggage!!! (although it takes us quite a wait to eventually figure this out).
A short taxi ride will take us both home.
WHEN DO I GET TO DO THIS AGAIN???
