River Kwai & Tiger Temple: learning a lot about the war prisoners during WOI and meeting one on one with tigers!
- impressed by the River Kwai bridge and shocked by the stories of all the war prisoners who were forced to build it
- excited to meet with a lot of tigers in the canyon @ Tiger Temple!
- loved our visit to one of the famous waterfalls in Thailand where local kids use the rock walls as slides :)
- doing the 20min skywalk at Tiger Temple on the hottest time of day, thinking I would see some tigers...obviously they were also hiding in the shades
- broke my record of experiencing Thailand traffic yams with total of 5 hours...
#weather: very hot and sunny!
#sleepover: last night in Nuovo City hotel and than off to Cambodia!
#tastyfood: so many great Thai dishes again for lunch :) loved the spicy chicken with lemongrass
#didyouknow: Kanchanaburi war cemetery is the resting place of more than 5000 Commonwealth and nearly 1900 Dutch prisoners of war who lost their lives working as forced labour on the construction of the Thailand-Burma railway
#surprising: while visiting the River Kwai Bridge one of the government officials was there as well doing interviews, so the history is until today very important
#funny: while making one of the pictures with the tigers, one actually woke up and I run away...very stupid
#amazed: even some monks have modern mobile phone devices and like to make selfies!
