Weekend well spent : A perfect escapade in Bangkok
Weekend well-spent; that’s a theme I could perfectly put on how these ordinary weekends turned amazingly incredible and memorable.
“I’m thinking of spending a long weekend in Bangkok. What do you think?” he said enthusiastically.
“Hmmm, it’s okay and fun, but we’re meeting soon, so it’s also okay if you don’t.” ( We were meeting two months later for our long trip in Southeast Asia.
Then, he still proceeded.
Though, the first attempt at booking a flight failed. So, we thought that maybe, it wasn’t meant to happen. But the possibility of seeing him again after being apart for a while sent beautiful jitters for many reasons I couldn’t grasp.
A few hours later, he surprised me with a successful flight booking. It was tense. At first, I thought it was insane. He had to endure a 30-hour flight to spend three nights and two days with me. It would be exhausting, expensive, and, most of all, fleeting.
But at the back of my mind I thought, that’s immensely romantic and extremely sweet! Hence, I was beyond ecstatic.
Imagine flying from Munich to spend only three nights and two days in Bangkok! The feeling was vastly overpowering. But by just having a thought of it, indeed, a weekend well-spent and a perfect escapade already!
Therefore, I asked my friend who owns the guesthouse that I managed to take a day off on a weekday and requested one of the volunteers to adjust his schedule for me. The good thing was, they were kind enough to grant me the favors I asked for.
The day of his arrival. A weekend sure I’d anticipating it beyond well-spent.
On the day of his arrival, my eyes were heavy. I was a bit intoxicated and was running late to pick him up from the airport
As I was approaching the meeting point, my attention was captured by a tall gorgeous looking guy wearing a dark blue long polo shirt, long pants, and rubber shoes, and carrying a luggage. I thought to myself, “What a handsome guy he is. He must be on a business trip here in Bangkok.” Suddenly, I noticed him approaching me. I was trying to avoid his gaze. All of a sudden, I realized it was he. Wow! The gorgeous guy was actually my boyfriend!
We embraced each other as though there was no tomorrow, and we kissed each other gently as we were also trying to avoid making a scene. How could we not miss each other, right?
When we arrived at our hotel, he handed me special macaroons baked in Paris. He knew that was my weakness. Macaroons! They instantly melted my heart.
Although we didn’t really have tons of ideas on how our weekend could have been spent well, we had a few activities we wanted to set out on.
That said, on his first night in Bangkok, we visited Hard Rock Cafe in Bangkok. One of our travel goals is to visit Hard Rock Cafe in every city.
And for the next two days, we discovered noodle houses and tasted different varieties of noodles that are famous all over Thailand. We also visited True Love Café to play and cuddle with the Huskies and devoured our favorite cheeseburger at McDonald’s. It’s the only burger we love to eat on our travels and again dined in at our top seafood restaurant, T & K Seafood at Chinatown.
We didn’t want a weekend escapade slide so fast so we savored every moment and created short but unforgettable ventures.
Furthermore, although we had a short list, it was worth it. I know, Three nights was relatively brief.
On a personal note
He proved to me that occasionally, distance doesn’t matter as long as we constantly do things for each other that could make us closer. Every effort and surprise counts.
It was just a regular weekend, but given the extraordinary fact that he chose to spend it with me all the way from the other side of the globe made it extra special. A weekend well spent I must say. A wonderful escapade that became one of my most favorites.
Moreover, I never had such a weekend like that before. It was absolutely romantic, and I wouldn’t trade that for anything else.
That trip also made us vow to exert more effort in our future escapades, whether they happen over a weekend, or on a long holiday.
We continue discussing plans for our next destinations, as we’re both passionate about traveling.
Like love, all the good weekends bring out the best in us especially when we share them with someone that matters to us.
A short trip with him makes not only well spent but for an ultimate weekend, and I’m in love with it!
Sadly, he had to go back home to Munich while I was back in my job as a guesthouse Manager in Bangkok. Nevertheless, What a weekend escapade that was!
Ultimately, with him, I found the epitome of a sweetheart.
