My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

We had breakfast at the hotel café. By 8:45 am we started driving on Highway 4 towards north and stopped for lunch in a Muslim Restaurant by the highway in Prachuap Khiri Khan and performed our prayers at the restaurant musolla.

We made a few more stops for coffee break at the Amazon Café. By 7:00 pm we arrived in Kanchanaburi and drove direct to the infamous Bridge over the River Kwai. There were a large crowd at the bridge, obviously waiting for the beautiful sun set. We bought fried rice-to- go from a Muslim stall near the Train Station.
