It is essential to find an excellent travel partner in this game of life…someone that understands how to share the experience, willing to divvy up the responsibilities.
Bob and I make great partners.
We divide and conquer when we travel. We respect each other’s differences. We do our best to balance a little activity with some rest & relaxation.
- I am the map reader, he is the keeper of the cash.
- I like to try new foods (pho for me), he prefers to count on something predictable (chicken sandwich and fries for him.)
- I like to people watch, wander through a city as a local, browse a little, shop a little…and so does he!
We saw a few beginning sights of Bangkok today. We were out and about for nearly 10 hours, riding taxis and trains and walking for miles (wish we had a pedometer with us.) We experienced a true Thai massage…side by side, as the masseuses stretched and straddled us…for just $16 for a full hour! We squished in with commuters on the train. We found a few treasures to bring home. (Bob’s first purchase was to replace the flip flops that broke during our flight time travels through Tokyo yesterday!)
It was a great start to this Asian adventure.
