The Abandoned Airplane Graveyard in Bangkok

My name is Steve and i am one of the people behind TotallyCoolPix and the Dutch Amusement site VKMag. I am absolutely no photographer nor i have the intentions to become one. But when i am somewhere on this planet i love to visit cool places and take some pictures. At this moment i am in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. Things you need to do here are eating Thai dishes (including spiders and scorpions), visiting the Grand Palace, various temples and of course drinking some cocktails in the rooftop bar that was featured in the Hangover II movie. Bangkok also has some places that are on the bucket list of Urban Explorers, like the abandoned Ghost Tower. But climbing 49 floors when it is really hot outside? No, not this trip. But there is another cool place in my eyes to visit in Bangkok, the Airplane Graveyard where abandoned jets have been left to rot. These planes were abandoned after a business venture to convert them into a bar and venue failed. So somewhere in a suburb of Bangkok is this private lot filled with pieces of decommissioned commercial jets, including a Boeing 747 fuselage. If you want to visit this graveyard you will have to pay 200 baht (5 euro) to a lady who lives on the site with her extended family in some converted fuselages.

Visiting Venice in Autumn has it’s risks

Venice is truly one of the most stunning city I've ever visited.
I took my kids there this Summer for an evening stroll and dinner and I was still as blown away as the first time I saw it. The canals, the beautiful buildings, the eerily quite backstreets away from the tourists, the history, the glamour and the views. We drove into town at 17pm, which was perfect as all the tourists were heading the other way, and it was surprisingly quiet.
So, if you want to have a quality and relatively quiet time in Venice you can do as we did, or you can take other people's advice and visit the city in Autumn, but that is not without it's risks.
