I had been out working and didn't know about the Notre Dame fire until I came indoors. After supper I emailed my cousin that I traveled with to Europe last spring and we started talking about it. Well now while we were doing that she came up with another trip. This time she came up with Thailand and side trips though Cambodia, Vietnam and Singapore. We've been exchanging emails most of the evening and I've been looking stuff up. Her cousin, my cousin too really, lives over there in Thailand, he's retired and from Murray Ky. He and his wife travel back and forth between the States and Thailand all the time. So she wants to go over there. It will be the 3 of us again, my cousin, her husband and me. The biggest thing will be the plane. I as sure as heck do not look forward spending 21 hours in coach, one way. Fly from Detroit to Seoul, South Korea, change planes and on to Bangkok Thailand. First Class lay flat seats are more SkyMiles than I'll be able to build up and it cost too much for my liking. But once you get to Thailand everything is CHEAP. I was looking at some hotels in Bangkok and there is a 5 star one that has 80 stories of rooms in downtown. I gave some dates just to be able to see the prices. It's a much bigger and nicer room than some I had in Europe plus the unbelievable views of the city from way up. The price showed $340. I thought Ok, that's not bad for a hotel like that but then I made a closet look. That price was not for one night but FIVE nights. That's just $63 for one person for 5 nights for that room. I checked other hotels and they all were that cheap. A coke cost around 80 cents, Big Mac less than $2, all prices US Dollars. Trip lasts from 3 to 4 weeks. I like the idea BUT have not said yes or no so far. They ARE going to go and said I could come along if I wanted to.
