Analogue Adventures – Orient Escapade 1982 – Hong Kong to Bangkok

All photos taken on May 7, 1982.

No time for a hotel breakfast this morning. It was up, out and on the bus to Kai Tak Airport early. We had a 9:00 AM flight to Bangkok to catch. We said our goodbyes to local tour guide Roxanne and headed for the departure lounge.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. Another leg of your whirlwind tour. I am forever defending Bangkok to people who say it has nothing to offer. Bangkok in 1982 though… can’t wait to see what you’ll be bringing us. Thai food is great and I can only imagine what a revelation that first feast must have been for you at the time.

    1. In 1982 and likely since, it was the most exotic place we had travelled. Tuk Tuks, hustle, bustle and colour were everywhere. It was an important year in the Royal family and all the temples and the Royal Grand Palace had been refreshed. Although we were not fans of ginger and cilantro at the time, Thai food has become one of our favourite cuisines since this first exposure to it. Thanks for reading Leighton and for your enthusiasm.
