Amsterdam Hotelboat

Our hotel boat in Amsterdam, aptly called Amsterdam Hotelboat.

When I was looking for a place to stay in Amsterdam, topping the search list are hotel boats. Of course, I was searching for affordable ones and by that I mean, €30/night/person or less. Lumping many countries (which in our case was 6) in one trip can be expensive because one would need to transfer from country to country. However, cross-country trains can also be cheaper if booked well in advance and it's now the era of budget airlines so, frugality can still be a way to go.

But then for us, mere employees who get our dough entirely by working, cheap train and airline tickets will still be congruent to affordable accommodations.

Our Other Stories in Bangkok

Aside from food, there were other things that occupied our time in Bangkok. Although I must admit, food became a focal point anywhere we went and it wasn't hard at all when almost every corner in Bangkok, there are food carts. I haven't expected myself to morph into something like this but here I am now, as if every travel must now revolve around food. Does it come with age? Anyhow, I digress. But does it even matter? :D

Victory Monument

While we waited for our departure time to the floating market, we spent some time on an elevated walkway, staring at this roundabout and just watching Bangkok's traffic. Of course, munching on green mangoes, dipped in chilli for good measure.

Gastronomic Heaven That's Bangkok

Only a weekend in Bangkok may be sadly short but it doesn't mean, happiness is difficult to find. Even the consequence of being a modern-day slave with far too limited vacation leaves, can become a trivial thing. Instead of sulking on such fact, I believe that there is yet a silver lining in everything forlorn. For making most out of the things at hand, can get us from today's worries to tomorrow's hopes.

Oh the melodrama that has gotten into me after sorting out my Bangkok photos! (Gutom lang 'to! haha) To break away from this anticlimactic spell, here are my photos as evidence of my resolve of fulfilling my appetite in Bangkok. When Kate, my friend based in Bangkok, asked me on what I wanted to do, the only thing that I could think of was food. Can you blame me?

This coconut ice cream in Khao San Road. 'Coz it's about time, we start with desserts!
