Sarah and Denis Round the World travel blog

Khao San Road at night (backpacker central)

D&D Inn (where we stayed) - not really that basic as it...

Khao San Road (other way) with Golden Mount in the background

Grand palace at night (with a couple of roundabout decorations)

Sarah practicing Step 2 of the Thai Massage course

In 5 days we learnt Steps 1 to 5 which included over...

Today is of course a white bandana day

Part of Step 5 - in our group of six was Natalie,...

Natalie was Sarah's partner for the course

The half-nelson

The bloke in the yellow shirt was our instructor - Somchai

Denis' partner was a Thai bloke that didn't speak any english

So any chance to get feedback on technique was appreciated

Or maybe just it was time for "Rewenge"

We fly back to Bangkok today from Phuket - we got the boat back from Koh Lanta changing at Phi Phi again. We will be sorting out our Vietnamese visas whilst we do a Thai massage course for 5 days. It takes that long for the visas to come through so it is a good use of time. No new Thai words yet and still solid. Hope to upload some pictures when we get back to Bangkok as well.

(Photos uploaded on 13/1/04 at last after we got a new camera - warning to you all - Sony operate a real guarantee scam. Because the original camera was on a European guarantee we couldn't get it fixed here unless we paid 8,000 Baht or about 100 pounds for a new lens. So we ended up buying a new camera instead, but as we had already shelled out on memory cards, spare battery and official Sony camera case we had to buy the same camera again. This was all a real pain to try and sort out and would have been a lot, lot harder without the help of Denis' mum ringing up Sony UK for us and trying to get them to help us. Sadly big corporates have no heart for anyone other than themselves.)
