We had a terrible flight. At first it was okay. Untill the guy who was sitting next to us became more drunk, that he was before he came on board the plain. He was not aggressive, but very annoying. And than he kept us awake by keep talking to us  with his alcoholic smell. We were glad that we got out of the plain. By the way, the service was good on board.

And then we had to wait in a big line at the immigrations for more than 2 hours because of a computer failure. That's a good start and ofcourse we always take the wrong line. So we were the last who came throught the immigration. Finally we went to the luggage pickup.

You won't believe it, but it's really truth, our luggage was lost. Both our backpacks were send to the wrong plain in Holland and they didn't know where they were.

This must be a nightmare, but I'm fully awake and this is reality. The guys at the lost and found desk helped us good and did everything to solve the problem.

After the customs, we went with the chauffeur of our hotel , who waited at the airport for more then 3 hours, to the MENAM RIVERSIDE HOTEL.

At the check-in of the hotel they already knew what was going on, the airport called already the hotel. So the manager said that we didn't had to worry and as soon as our luggage was arrived, he shall bring it up to our room. Well the room is great, at the 12th floor with a view over the Chao Praya river. 

We're just took a refreshing shower and than got some sleep for at least 6 hours.

We woke up around 6 in the evening, went downstairs to the reception and asked them if they hat any news about the luggage. The awnser was that KLM was searching in Holland for our luggage. So, they didn't know yet. And one thing is for sure, it's hot and moisten in Thailand. So after a few hours you want to change clothes. Sh..! Da...! Well, there is nothing you can do at this point, than just keep waiting. So, we have our first real Thai meal, an expensive meal at the hotel, but it taste GREAT. And than a nice cold Chang beer with it.
