Home - Journeys - Holiday Thailand 2017 - Thursday, September 28 and Friday, September 29, 2017

We are going to Thailand for two months and therefore we need to apply for visas.
We still have some hotel vouchers and before we go to the embassy, we stay in Scheveningen at the Ramada The Hague Scheveningen for one night.
The day does not start well, it rains hard, but according to the weather forecast it would be better later that day.
We leave at about half past 12, and in Scheveningen it is indeed not raining anymore. But very quiet too.
We are going to walk along the boulevard, many restaurants and beach tents, and almost all the same dishes on the menu. After lunch, at about half past three we continue walking. We arrive in the center of Scheveningen. And there are strikingly many Thai restaurants and massage salons.
It starts to rain again. We are going to have a drink in a cafe. When it stopt raining, we walk back, but it does not last long; we hide for a while and then walk back again.
On the boulevard again, we decide to drink something, and after a while also to eat something. That food is not that special, a pity. But it has stopped raining, and the sun is shining.
At about eight we finish our dinner, and we walk over the boulevard for a while. Very quiet again. Many restaurants and beach tents are already closing.
At 9 o'clock we are back in the hotel, where we have some drinks.

The next day, we didn't sleep very well, we have breakfast. Fortunately, that is good.
We drive to the embassy and issue passports and forms.
End of next week the passports will be returned.
After that we go to China Town in The Hague, where we look around and make some purchases.
And then it starts to rain again. We go home.

No inspiring days for the coming vacation.

We tell what we have done and experienced during a trip and we also tell what we think about it; no more and no less.

This is not a travel guide, nor is it advice to visit a place or not. There are other sites for that.
Our opinion about places where we have eaten, drunk or slept is not intended as a (positive or negative) assessment, there are other sites for that.
It is our view of the situation at a certain moment and that view is influenced by our mood, the weather and many other factors.
