Bangkok adventure vlog: a 40th birthday to remember!

by | My life as an artist | 10 comments


Now I feel special…

Who wouldn’t want to go on a Bangkok adventure? I sure do!!

So there I was, discussing birthday celebration plans on the couch with hubby Pete, about a month before my 40th…
Although Pete has MANY qualities, planning celebrations and gifts is not his favourite thing!
I have had to explain many times how loved and special it makes me feel to receive a present from him… That knowing he has put some effort into finding something for me matters more than the present itself but still… He leaves things until the last minute and struggles with ideas…
It’s tough to be a man hahaha

But 40 is quite a number, right? And that deserve an extra special event, wouldn’t you agree?
So I suggested a little Bangkok adventure!
He had never been (twice for me but a LONG time ago) and you can find good deals on flights and accommodation here in Australia.
So, I did my research and put my proposal forward and, he agreed, YAY!

  4. Wow! That wasn’t just a taste, it was a full 10-course meal of Thailand sights and culture. I LOVED every minute of your travel vlog. Felt like I was right there along with you and hubby – Enjoyed those tuk tuk rides, even the close encounter with the turning bus! I’m still in a dizzying trance from seeing all the architecture and sculptures. Incredible beauty. Thank you so much for sharing and belated 40th Birthday wish!
