Bangkok to Amsterdam

I am CREW… Follow me to my ship in Greece

New Post on my YouTube Channel “Travel Guide and Photography”

This weeks video I continue my travel from my home in Nawa, Thailand to my ship the NCL Jade located in Athens, Greece and the port of Piraeus. I made a stop in Bangkok, Thailand for a couple days as I must get some medical paperwork completed before arriving at my ship.

While in Bangkok I will show you a great one-bedroom hotel to stay called Hotel LA 49. It is large and spacious with a great view. It has a separate living room, kitchen, vanity, and wardrobe area along with a large bath, a fully equipped kitchen and a washer dryer. It is located a short walk to Sukhumvit Road and only minutes away from several great restaurants. It is also a short Grab Taxi ride to Terminal 21 Mall, one of the finest malls in Bangkok. To top it off Hotel LA 49 is extremely affordable.

I will also discuss two of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Bangkok, Charlie Browns Mexicana that I have gone to for years and El Jefe Cantina that I just discovered El Jefe on this trip. El Jefe is a small café on a side street and a great place for traditional Mexican food.

I also take you inside El Toro Steak House another find on this trip. It is an Argentinian and Brazilian Steak House and let you know what to expect if you have never been to one. I’ve been to both Argentina and Brazil and El Toro is truly authentic and a great place to eat, especially for meat eaters although it also has a great salad and soup bar. After boarding my plane in Bangkok I touched down in Amsterdam where I give a brief look at the airport and then off to Greece.

Enjoy – Larry

I started my career in photography as a professional photojournalist in 1979 at the time working with several newspapers and magazines in Southern California. What I loved most about photojournalism was its diversity and over my career I covered professional sports, concerts and travel. As life would have it mine took yet another turn and in 1988 I developed an interest in holistic medicine. I became a professional massage therapist specializing in sports medicine. In 1991 I decided to go to medical school and obtained a medical degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine and stared my career as a licensed acupuncture physician. After medical school I moved my practice to northern Idaho for a year before settling in the resort area of Sun Valley, Idaho. I’ve always been an outdoor person and hiking and backpacking the Rockies and fishing the pristine river waters and high altitude lakes offered me a wonderful photographic opportunity. In 2010 I left Sun Valley and I once again found myself on a cruise ship, this time working as an “Acupuncturist at Sea”. For the past seven years I have traveled to 85 countries, which has allowed me to photograph much of the world.
