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! 🙂

The Hangover

After a long time, I fly again to the bustling Thai Bangkok. While Easter is celebrated at home, in Thailand there is a great water festival now called Songkran and celebrations of The Thai New Year. Celebrations in the streets take place similarly to us. The city is full of young and drunk people, all in raincoats (but it’s not raining) armed with spray guns and phones in waterproof plastic bags hanging on their necks. While in our country, guys splash girls only, in Thailand, everyone splash everybody. If you’re walking down the streets at a water festival, get ready for a shower from everyone around you. I just got it with a garden hose! 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! I don’t want to enter this luxurious bar totally wet, but fortunately in Bangkok it’s so hot that by the time I arrive, I’m totally dry. Though Thailand is one of the cheapest countries, Sirocco doesn’t belong to cheap ones at all! However, it is worth to visit! In front of the lifts there is a long line of waiting guests and a guard who closely monitors the dress code. In flip-flops and shorts you won’t be allowed to get in. But, no need to go back to change, right in the vicinity of the hotel you will find several smart merchants who sell or rent a jacket and elegant shoes for you. 🙂 Maybe the Sirocco bar is known especially from the movie Hangover 2, but I rather feel like Audrey Tautou in the movie Priceless. The atmosphere is amazing! A soul band on the terrace, under the feet the blazing Bangkok, a light breeze in the hair, and champagne pouring into the glasses. And what, we live only once! I also order a cocktail of genuine champagne for 60 Euros and I enjoy it in the last breath… I just miss Audrey’s nose for millionaire. 🙂

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?

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…

Phuket

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

Bangkok #3

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

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 #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.
