POW-WIENER!!!

Yup...we're going to Bangkok, and we leave tomorrow morning.
I'm excited. This will be my first time in Asia. Mrs. TBF? It's old hat for her. She's been to Asia several times THIS YEAR!
A couple of months ago she asked me if I'd like to accompany her on a business trip. Before I said yes, I made one demand. You guessed it....BUSINESS CLASS! I'm sorry...I'm 6'5" tall and there's NO WAY I'm flying coach for thirteen hours. I am a Travel Diva, but only out of necessity. The worst part of it is that Mrs. TBF wasn't able to get me BC with miles, so...I made her BUY me a ticket. OUCH!!!
We're going to be flying on Singapore Airlines - which everybody (including Mrs. TBF) raves about. Apparently they serve satay, noodles, and a bunch of other stuff that Mrs. TBF says I'll love. First we fly to Singapore, and then we connect for a 2+ hour flight to Bangkok.
I'm going to have a fair amount of time on my own in Bangkok since Mrs. TBF has meetings. I've been telling people that one of my goals is to never have to bathe myself. No...I'm not talking about never bathing. What I'm talking about is having other people do it for me. You know...soapy,soapy-washy, washy! Is that just a Japenese thing? I guess I'll just have to wait and see.
Stay tuned. I'll be posting pictures and commentary from Pow-weiner (a.k.a. Bangkok).

Business Class to Thailand. ON Singapore Airways. Mrs TBF spoils you, my husband definitely approves and wishes I would do the same.

Enjoy your trip!

You may have realized by now that I have also reached travel diva status! Good thing we have such understanding (and generous) spouses. We flew on Singapore last year and can confirm all the good things you've heard. Great food, an amazing selection of TV and movies, and very nice "Singapore Girls" (we'll have to tell you a story about that sometime). Have a great trip. We're anxious to hear your tips on Bangkok since we'll be there in December.

I'm jealous of everyone traveling. I miss Switzerland and traveling too. Oh well - maybe my time will come one day. For now, I guess I'm still being pampered as we have a wedding coming up..

Cathay Pacific is right up there with SAir, you'll LOVE BC with them.

We know a couple who were in Thailand and went to get a Thai massage and it turns out they were offered much more than just soapy-soapy, washy-washy, if you know what I mean...

I just saw Conan O Brien talking about his Finnish audience. It was scary, and thought I would let you know.
