STEWARDESS

I’m a stewardess, but I used to be an editor for a magazine, so I always have had my head in the clouds. In addition, I’ve always been attracted by the heights and distances and so I came up with a great idea – I could explore the world as a flight attendant! 🙂

Between the two challenging flights to America – Chicago and San Francisco, I found one destination perfect for mental and physical regeneration. Massage, hair, manicure, eyebrows, plastic surgery or tattoos, or even false documents – Bangkok is among the crew known as a place to go for a new “facelift”. You can find all these services here for just few money but still of a relatively high quality. And as our company travels to the capital of Thailand four times a day, for most of the crew, Bangkok is almost like a transit station. I have already visited the floating market, I have seen a ping-pong show so where to go next? Pad Thai, sweet Mango Sticky Rice and, of course, good massage is must, so the plan after arrival is clear. First body regeneration, then good food and finally bed.
Wat Pho, Reclining Buddha

On the next morning, I decide for some mandatory sightseeing. While most of the crew are relaxing in beauty salons, I’m heading to the Temple of the Reclining Buddha called Wat Pho. It is one of the oldest and most extensive temple complex in Bangkok with the largest collection of Buddha portraits. The temple once served as a center of public education, and it is still delivering to public secrets of Thai medicine. Just between these decorated walls, a traditional Thai massage was born. Monks still teach their techniques here. The complex is really huge and I really enjoy hanging around. I look through the slit of the open door and quietly listen to the class. Or, I observe monks in intimate prayer. In another corner, a group of young girls rehearsal traditional oriental dances. Then I take of my shoes and with a group of other tourists I enter the main hall, where is resting 46 meters long Buddha. And why is he resting? The statue of the lying Buddha represents its entrance into the state of Nirvana. Later I find myself laughing that the Buddha had flat legs. Forgive me, I know, we should not be making fun of the saints… There are exactly 108 bronze jugs on the side, in which the believers throw coins. If you throw a coin into each one, you will have a good luck. In addition, you will contribute to the maintenance of the temple. Unfortunately I do not have 108 coins, so my luck has to wait… Is it because I said you have flat legs, Buddha? 🙂

Bangkok #5

Everybody have probably heard about LEBUA bar well known from Hollywood movie Hangover.
But I know about one another super cool and secret place.

Bangkok #4

My goal is to visit one of the world’s most famous sky bars – the Sirocco Restaurant & Sky Bar at the Lebua Hotel. You will know it too! Just remember the movie Hangover 2 happening in Bangkok!

Bangkok #3

Wat Pho. It is one of the oldest and most extensive temple complex in Bangkok with the largest collection of Buddha portraits.

Phuket

White sand, turquoise sea, breathtaking scenery, dolphins, cheap food, juicy fruit… Packed and ready within 15 minutes!

Bangkok #2

Just recently I came back from Bangkok and now I’m flying there again. And again with my friend Veronica! We do not have any big plans at this time…

Bangkok #1

What is the probability that you will get a common layover together with your best friend in a company that employs about 6,000 stewards and stewardesses?
