Home - Journeys - Thailand 2018/2019 - Monday, February 4, 2019

We sleep reasonably well in Latkrabang and get up on time.

Tomorrow we want to go to Ubon Ratchathani.
Pia remembers that we also have to go to Uthai Thani to pay land tax for the family; we promised them that.
Tom goes looking for a place to sleep in Ubon, and Pia starts cleaning the kitchen for the umpteenth time.
Then Pia suggests not to go to Ubon, that is at least an eight-hour drive, but to Suphanburi. From there we can also easily go to Uthai Thani.
Tom spends the rest of the morning searching for a hotel in Suphanburi. There are plenty of hotels, but all of them either in the center or in the middle of nowhere.

Tom wants to go to massage this afternoon, to Porntip Thai Massage & Spa. The pain in the shoulder is less, but not completely gone.
In the afternoon we go to massage. This time it will be an oil massage, less painful than the last time. The oil appears not to be an oil, but a menthol and eucaliptus-containing spread.

After the massage we go to the Paseo Latkrabang to eat and drink.
Wine Connection, where Tom wanted to go, has no beer at all, neither on tap nor in a bottle. Not smart of them.
We then buy a bottle of wine at Villa Market and have dinner at Tong Tem To, a restaurant that has food from northern Thailand on the menu. It is tasty, but less sharp than we are used to in the north.

When we go home, half past eight, the Paseo night market is already being cleared and the shops are closing.
At home, at nine o'clock, everyone is already in bed.
Tom will sleep very badly tonight, there are mosquitoes in the bedroom.

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.
