    Well it was time for the first of 3 visits this year back to the land of sun and smells.
    Travelling from a very cold Scotland too Khon Kaen where our hoose is via Heathrow, Hong Kong, Pattaya and Bangkok.
    House needs some fixing as its been a bit neglected over the last few years.

    Inverness airport






    Here we go



    1 hour 20 min to LHR



    Flight to HK delayed due to weather stuck in biz lounge for 5 hours

    They wouldn't let me take my Swiss pocket knife on board and here we see evidence that the posh bastads get metal cutlery!

    What an unfair world this is...

    Have to approach HK from the east adding more time and missing connecting flight.







    Met by a pretty lass at the door to sort flight out.
    Next flight full, hope we can lay over.

    Dam got seats on last flight out arriving BKK after midnight.
    $500HK given to spend on food & ales.

    First stop some ramen




    then some shopping and the lounge again.







    Cathy pacific to Bkk change of plane meant the old style seating.





    nice bit of cod and mash.

    Arrive in BKK very drunk and full as fook.

    Looking good there. Long old journey - would have been tempted to break it with a couple of days in HK to kick about.

    Good thread, Jack. Glad the steak was up to par.

    It's tough being continually offered food on a plane. I find it difficult to refuse so I usually get off the plane feeling full.

    Yea. would of been nice to break it up but ticket was cheap for this route and not many flights in and out of Inverness.
    Also had bags 128kg checked in all the way through.

    Meet up with niece and get a couple of hours shut eye in the Great residence hotel (£40 for 2 rooms with breaky and airport transfers).

    Welcome party at Khon Kaen



    Arrive at mansion



    Got some fireworks and beer & good scotch (Tomatin 12 year).



    Brother in laws turned his fortuna into some kind of night club, so frigging loud.







    saw in the bells and crashed out.

    She is 12 bud.
    We take her on holidays with us around Thailand, She lives with her father and we are talking her up to Khon Kaen where her mother and fiancé have just arrived from Sweden to get married.
    They are staying at our house and the wedding ceremony will be held there.
    She hasn't seen her mum (wife's sister) in the last year.
    A tad awkward.
