Arrived back in Bangkok yesterday evening. Pretty funny taxi driver - a woman who didn't know where the Shangri La hotel is and I had to give her directions. When she pulled into the driveway her eyes got huge and she said "ooh, hi-so" (high society). Am staying here for two nights as part of my +Viking River Cruises  trip to #Myanmar. What a gorgeous hotel! Take a look at some of these photos:

Story
Tagline
Hole in the Donut Cultural Travel - Connecting the World Through Storytelling
Introduction
After years of working 70 hours a week at jobs I detested, I felt like the proverbial "hole in the donut" - solid on the outside, but empty on the inside. Searching for meaning in my life, I abandoned a successful but unsatisfying career and set out on a six-month solo backpacking trip around the world, during which I pursued my true passions of travel, writing, and photography. My travel blog, http://holeinthedonut.com, was initially begun as a means to document my round-the-world trip, but by the time I returned to the States I was determined to remake myself into a travel writer, therefore I continued to travel and write about my destinations. These days I am on the road more than 60% of the time and I write about destinations, people I meet along the way, and the spiritual lessons that come from travel. It's all about being true to oneself.

I absolutely loved my week-long Flavours Holidays cooking vacation in Puglia, Italy. Not only did I learn how to make many regional dishes with the help of Chef Antonio, I came away with a feeling of having seen the real Puglia, as our holiday included visits to four of the towns in the area.
