I was on Thailand for three weeks, but didn’t really do all that much photographing. This trip had a different main focus, which is well documented on the two following photos.

Holiday reads were The Blood of Flowers by Anita Amirrezvani, Tett inntil dagene by Mustafa Can, Kineseren by Henning Mankell & the inspiring travel book by Torbjørn Færøvik Buddha’s Children – A Journey Among People. Færøvik is a wonderful storyteller who shares loads of facts about Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Burma. Not only does he manage to make you want to learn even more, he also makes you want to travel the world.

Bangkok is one of the few places in the world where nobody seems to mind if you set up a bar or restaurant on top of a skyskraper.

Cocktails at the Moon Bar at Vertigo with a jaw dropping view from the 61st floor. I really recommend doing this, but remember to dress up and leave the sandals behind for this.
