EN: Two weeks already and I am missing Thailand! I can say that it’s the most beautiful country we visited till now. We found out about this amazing guy who had the craziest dream: get your own boat and travel the world. It makes me wonder where did my life go wrong and why don’t I have a boat of my own? Anyway, let’s get real and tell you more about Razvan. After traveling around the world he decided to share his dream with others. That’s how we found out about the amazing trips he was making.
He made this amazing plan of where to take you each day and what to do for the whole time you’ll be there, so you won’t get bored(like that’s possible when you’re in heaven aka Thailand). You can find more info on his web page Aventurapeocean, where he is explaining everything related to your journey to Thailand. I need to say his pictures make you fall in love with that place and you won’t even consider another destination as your next holiday.

We had a 10:20 flight from Heathrow to Bangkok, then another hour from Bangkok to Phuket, where we will meet Razvan. Now, let me start with the airplane. We flew with Thai Airways airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger airliner. Need to say that it was amazing, and when I say this I think of all the food we got during the flight. Please don’t misjudge me, I am tiny and skinny, but I never say no to food. We received 3 meals during the whole flight, plus snacks, drinks every hour, and a sandwich in between meals.
We arrived in Bangkok early in the morning, got our visa then took the flight to Phuket. Took a cab and went to meet Razvan at his apartment. He explained again everything that we will do during this whole time then we went to the beach. I am telling you I was feeling a bit tanned from last summer till I got there and looked at the other people. I was actually thinking if I should take my clothes off or not, like really people why are you so tanned in January?! We stayed there one hour or so and then went back to the hotel and stayed at the swimming pool.
The first night we spent wandering around the colourful streets of Phuket, and the next day our sea adventure was about to begin for good.
Here is a little preview of how our next days looked like. Stay tuned for more about our amazing trip to Thailand.
RO: Doua saptamani si deja imi e dor de Thailanda. Pot sa spun cu mana pe inima ca e una dintre cele mai frumoase tari vizitate pana acum. Desi pana acum mergeam cu agentii de turism, cu Tailanda era putin mai diferit. Andrei daduse pe internet de Razvan, un tip din Bucuresti care organiza calatorii in diferite insule ale Tailandei. Aveti aici mai multe informatii despre toata calatoria in Tailanda Aventurapeocean. Sa revenim la Razvan, cum ziceam toata treaba asta a pornit dintr-un vis de al lui de a avea o barca cu care sa calatoreasca in jurul lumii. Zis si facut. Apoi s’a hotarat sa imparta si cu noi, restul, bucuria de a calatorii in locuri uimitoare. Asa am ajuns noi sa aflam despre el si despre toata ideea lui de a vedea mai multe insule ale Tailandei in cateva zile.

Trebuie sa recunosc ca pozele lui Razvan te fac sa te indragostesti de loc si sa scoti din calcul orice alte optiuni ai avea.

Asa am luat biletele si am plecat cu zambetul pe buze catre aeroport. Zborul dura 10:20 pana la Bangkok, apoi inca o ora pana in Phuket. Zburasem pentru prima data cu Airbus A380, cel mai mare avion de pasageri.
Ce o sa faci in cele 10 ore, te intrebi? Te poti uita la filme, seriale, te poti juca diferite jocuri si sa nu uitam cel mai important lucru pentru mine, mancarea. Pana la aterizare o sa ai cel putin 1kg in plus la cata mancare primesti. Se servesc 3 mese pe parcursul zborului, plus bauturi la orice ora si un sandwich intre mese.
Am ajuns in Bangkok in jurul orei 6, ne-am luat viza si am zburat mai apoi catre Phuket, unde urma sa ne vedem cu Razvan. Ne-a explicat din nou ce o sa facem si ordinea in care o sa vizitam insulele, dupa care am mers la o plaja in Phuket. Seara am petrecut’o tot in Phuket, a doua zi urmand sa incepem cu adevarat aventura noastra pe ocean.
Iata un mic preview din ce a urmat mai departe. More to come soon!
