 On April 2013 we boarded our first international flight from Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose airport ,Kolkata.We both were ebullient & happy..aww..It was an amazing feeling.
GET SET..GO..!

















Pretty ladies in their traditional  Thai attire welcomed us saying..SAVAAS DI KA (HELLO TO THE LADY)& SAVAAS DI KRAP(HELLO SAID TO A MAN).We occupied our seats..As always i got the window seat ..hehe... lucky me..!
rice,chicken curry ,some greens ,salad,pudding ,juice...yum yum
Once the plane took off we were served a palatable meal after which we enjoyed litle music and took a nap..

                                                                                                                                         





 We reached Bangkok, Suvarna Bhoomi airport by 5 am & after getting our visa we were taken to our hotel"Hill Fresco" at Pattaya.The stay was quite  good & comfortable.Actually our trip was for a week so,here we have managed to share with u almost all unforgettable memories which we had secured there in bits and bites so as to avoid boredom of reading an essay.. Hope you will enjoy these bits..

 Ravishing Islands:

CORAL ISLAND IN PATTAYA

Away from the hustle bustle of Pattaya ,by a 30 -45 minutes bumpy and breath taking boat ride we reached this spectacular island.On the way to the island we indulged in PARA SAILING for the first time..oh my god it was just another bit ,whose memory will always remain close to our heart.Enjoyed to the brim of our heart and soul.. :)
HURRAY....HERE I  FLY..!

   As it was quite an expensive island and above all we both were non swimmers so we just sat back on the relaxing chairs and enjoyed the  breeze and waves.
