Day 3: Alone in Bangkok (Cathy)

After landing in Bangkok, I realized that Cee wasn't able to meet me at the airport because of the Bike for Dad event. 

So, I hopped on the Bangkok Transit System (BTS) and made my way over. Unfortunately, the stop I needed to get off was closed because of the event. I ended up getting off a few stops early and tried to hail a taxi, but none would take me because all the major roads were closed for the event. 

Long story short: I was stranded in Bangkok. 

Luckily, I met a fellow traveller along the way who let me tag along with him throughout the day. We then proceeded to get scammed by a taxi driver who took us to the wrong place, jumped back onto the BTS and then walked around the city to find his hotel. 

There, I was able to contact Cee to let her know where I was. Thankfully, the receptionist at the hotel was able to explain to the taxi driver how to get to my hostel.
