Train Ride to Pack of Cards Wooden Bridge in Kanchanaburi, Thailand

Why is a bridge called 'pack of cards', you ask? Because it has fallen down about four times. 

We took our chances and took the train westward from Kanchanaburi to see the wooden bridge. 

The train ride was super beautiful through the countryside, and we saw a surprising amount of crops considering it is dry season in Thailand right now. 

We got off and walked along death railroad - it was actually the hottest day of life, about 40C. I thought my flip flops were going to melt on the metal tracks. 

We then went to ask a wish from the Buddha in a cave, as we had been instructed by a lady on the train. 

It was the first day that we didn't really know what we were doing, but ended up being really lovely thanks to suggestions from kind strangers :) 

We got back to our hotel and made a pit stop at our fave vegetarian restaurant - Mama On's Thai Issan restaurant. 

If you go, get the Tom Kha soup and Thai iced tea with lemon (which is actually lime, since lemons are super rare and expensive here). 

It was back to Bangkok for us!
