It has been a long, hard and bleak British winter which has made Spring
all the more delightful for everyone, and especially wonderful for me
arriving in the UK from the hot and humid tropics.
Of course, we arrived to for a quick visit to catch up with family and friends
to find everyone apologising for the dismal, cold weather
- not at all I said, I love it cool these days!
We've had a wonderful time, enjoying beautiful Britain in the Spring.
Everything seems particularly green this year.
The flowers are out to delight, we just love the tulips at Dyrham House and the bluebells woods are stunning. By the May Bank holiday weekend, the weather was being reported as a 28-degree scorcher. Yeah right, it was spot on perfect for me.
I'm heading back to Bangkok this week where the temperature will be scorching no fib!
I have finished off my Blogging from A to Z (2018) Challenge. Thank you to everyone who has popped over to find me at my new space on the internet. In case you missed any of final posts you can find them here:
T is for Tea at the Mandarin Oriental
Fancy joining me for a quick cuppa in the delightful Authors' Lounge at one of Bangkok's lovely riverside hotels? I'm reminded of our impromptu stay there during the late King of Thailand funeral last year, it was quite an experience!
U is for University Life in Bangkok
Little Old Wren has found herself back studying at University in Bangkok this year. Well, it's student life Jim, but not as we know it!
V is for Visit to The River Kwai, Kanchanaburi
Attending the Anzac Day Service at Hyde Park Corner last week, made us reflect back to our visit to Kanchanaburi. This area of Thailand became famous because of the sacrifices made by many Prisoners of War who worked, thousands died, building the Thai-Burma Death Railway. Won't you come with me to explore some more?
W is for Wandering Hellfire Pass, Kanchanaburi
This is part two of the above visit, where we wander Hellfire Pass. It's now a beautiful part of Thailand that hides the horrors of war well. Lest we forget.
X is for X Rays and Health Screening in Bangkok
Moving into modern-day Thailand, we find a healthcare program which is quite different from the more symptom led approaches of Australian Medicare and British National Health Service. It was quite a shock!
Y is for Yoga in Thailand
Needing a more zen-like calm after our Bangkok medicals how about some yoga on the helipad?
Z is for the Amphawa to the Zoo of life, Thailand
Hooray, I made it to Z! I will take you on a morning tour which starts at a floating market, we will whiz around the waterways in a James Bond, and search for a hidden temple dwarfed under a Banyan Tree, and end up at a Thai Zoo of sorts. Will you join me?
Time to head back to Bangkok
See you back in Asia!
