Thai – Lao Friendship Bridge, NongKhai

I must have been a train robber in a past life, as my rail karma sucks.

Crossing back into Thailand from Vientiane I make 3 new border friends at Thanaleng station. We do the where you from/where you been/where you going – repeat to fade bit. They look like keepers, and we all get on well. We make it into NongKhai and I recount my ‘Sapa train ticket faux pax’ story. We all laugh. We check our tickets. Yes, that’s right I am on a different sodding train.  Again. This time I don’t try to switch, I have learnt my lesson. I have seen Final Destination. I wave them off like Celia Johnson from Brief Encounter, and wait an hour for the late train on my own. Nice sunset though. I would love to say it was fate, and someone amazing was on my train. No such luck. So much for the ‘Friendship Bridge!’

Connecting to %s : The Anantasin is the name of a shipwreck just of the coast of the Sensi Parasise, Mae Haad Bay, Koh Tao, Thailand. It’s one of my many favorite places.

Lit.tle: Just because it’s cute.
