LOG ENTRY 46

We spent a week exploring Bangkok with Dad and our new friend Geng because we had to wait for Mom as her work required her to stay an extra week before she could leave and visit

Bangkok is an incredible city at first. I will never forget the excitement and anticipation to see more of the “big mango” in my first days in this great city. The glittery gaze wears off after a while as it happens with everything new but at that time Bangkok seemed to offer unlimited possibilities and fun. 

We have been here only for a few days but we both felt this place could be our home easily. Little I knew back then that years later Bangkok will really become my home in the future, of course the glitter and neon shaded since then.

We received a bad news from Mom that due to work issues she had to postpone her flight for a few days so we have to wait in Bangkok for a while. Not entirely a bad news but I really wanted to meet Mom again. Luckily we have heaps of things to do. One of these thing was to stock up our supplies, buy new tires, oil filters, oil, chain, small tools which we forget to bring from Hungary and it turned out we need them such as a chain breaker.

People who ever came to Bangkok know that the red light areas and party hot spots are located in a few places. Unlike Europe where mainly clubs and bars are scattered around town, Bangkok has avenues where 40-50 clubs placed next to each others such as the Royal City Avenue or even Khaosan road. When it came to parts shopping it was not otherwise. One street in China town has about 30 to 40 tire shops which makes our life incredible easy. No hassle with comparing price and brands, just walk into one shop and then walk to the one next to it and so on, simple and fast. We managed to buy everything we needed and in some cases we paid ridiculously low price as well. Of course as we are in Asia and especially Thailand, the genuinity of the product was questionable but who cares if the pump or a spanner is not original Beta, it works fine. We bought Michelin Anakee tires for both bikes for a fairly reasonable price too.

After a not so hard shopping day we headed back to our nest to freshen up for the night. Dad and me became fairly obsessed of the neon lighten and buzzing Khaosan road and the ever buzzing crowd on it. After spending almost two months in the Middle East and India I think we needed this and of course the cheap beer makes it look even more exciting.

As the evening turned towards night Dad withdraws himself from the fun and left me alone in one of the biggest bar in the middle of Khaosan road. Before you start to feel bad about me I was not alone for a very long time. Soon after Dad’s departure a young lady set next to me and chat me up. Her name was Geng, a 22 years old English teacher, she was Thai.

On the same night Geng and I went on a massive sightseeing tour around the not so sleeping streets of Bangkok. She directed me to little secret places and perfect viewpoints of the night city and we watched the sunrise together by the river. It is always great to have a local guide to explore and it was a plus that she loves motorcycles too. As she was on her summer holiday we got her to stay with us and turned the night ride into another trips outside of Bangkok in the next following days.

Dad's birthday cake with Geng, 23rd of August, 2005
On the 23rd of August we celebrated Dad’s birthday. Growing old but still with a heart of a child. The three of us had great time and we decided to visit Pattaya, a well known tourist destination just 2 hours South East of Bangkok. As it turned out Pattaya earned its name from its nightlife which we decided not to explore deeply and returned to Bangkok on the same day. The ride was great on the way down but it really didn’t worth as the beach was dirty and the ride back in the middle of the night was something similar we experienced in India. This is how we spent our week in Bangkok until Mom came so we finally could continue our trip to the South. Geng also decided to come with us until the Thai border. In the next LOG ENTRY Mom will join the trip and the four of us heads down to Koh Samui at first and then to Malaysia.

It is so nice to see a family that travel together when parents are supposed to be empty nesters. Some people do not like travelling with their parents. Some can't even stand being in the same house for a week. Some would beg their parents to travel with them but they are too proud. So when you see a happy family like this, it is really an inspiration. Don't wait for a funeral to give your mother and sister flowers.

Travelling, one accepts everything; indignation stays at home. One looks, one listens, one is roused to enthusiasm by the most dreadful things because they are new. Good travellers are heartless.

Wow the view is so beautiful and the sunlight with the dark shadowy look is so mesmerizing. Well it is good that due to your mom you got the opportunity to explore the Bangkok city. The glittery gaze of its places and unlimited opportunities and choices resides in the Bangkok.

Quite possibly there's nothing as fine as a big freight train starting across country in early summer, Hardesty thought. That's when you learn that the tragedy of plants is that they have roots.

I am awfully greedy; I want everything from life. I want to be a woman and to be a man, to have many friends and to have loneliness, to work much and write good books, to travel and enjoy myself, to be selfish and to be unselfish… You see, it is difficult to get all which I want. And then when I do not succeed I get mad with anger.

    The Riders:

    Aurel Maracsko and his son Aurel Maracsko jr. 

    We are a father and son duo who loves riding motorcycles. Aurel Jr. or Tom is an enthusiast enduro rider and Aurel Sr. is more of the adventure rider. 

    Me, a combination of Tom Sawyer and the Little Prince, adventurer, dreamer and a crazily enthusiast rider. Jules Verne was the ultimate hero of my childhood, his foresight's of the future and exotic adventures fascinated me to a level which still influences me today. I believe the constant thirst for exploration and the need for learning is the key engine for every adult just as for every child.
