Here we go again !
Where to start ... So much has happened to us, since our last update.
Tuesday 30th November we headed into Bangkok and found ourselves slap bang in the middle of Ping Pong, Bangkok chick and Go Go Boy City ! Yeah, Our little Tuk Tuk driver obviously didn't like the fact we had bartered so well with him and got a cheap ride, so our come upance was to be dropped off in Pang Pong ... The red light district. Best bit is we didn't notice to start off with, but we started getting some very Bizzarre offers !
Wednesday , very early start .. Like 5.30am YUCK .. dashed to breakfast, as we were afraid that was our last decent meal for the next four whole days. !
We have found our first friend 'Gareth' who is travelling alone and so teamed up with shelley and I. So TWO became THREE ! We have also met a fab belgium couple, who had some stories to tell and four peeps from Oz.. That all made our trip, ever so more entertaining. !
Well our jungle trek was an experience , especially the elephant with shed loads of attitude ! firstly it didn't like walking when eating wasn't involved and then when a generator started up ( Yes they have these in the jungle would you believe it ? ) ... It let out a blood curdling scream and headed for the hills at top speed. Luckily for us our guide didn't fall off and just swung from its ears, calming and soothing us by laughing. Thankfully the run for the hills lasted till it caught up with its mate in front. ! A strong vodka was then needed to settle Hannahs nerves !
Hamish the little white sheep, has become quite an attraction and now appears in more photos than us. ! Especially as the locals out here, think he is a dog and we then have to explain that he is actually a sheep.
Our accomodation on the river Kwai consisted of floating huts, with a bed and bathroom and a hammock swinging on the porch. ! The shower was an Éxperience to say the least, you could clean your teeth, go to the toilet and have a shower all at the same time... Oh and by candle light. ! ( It was really lovely and we even experienced the Thai food delights... Wasn't too bad at all - Michelle has converted back to a carnivore. Damn ! )
Back to Bangkok on Friday with our new friend Gareth, where the traffic was hell and we were on a bus that had a chicken on board. !
We had a bath and a shower, and fully conditioned our hair before heading out to Ko San Road... (with our new friend Gareth). This is where all the back packers head and its deffo True. We made some more friends .. but we can't remember there names !
Today we met up with Sharon (Hannahs friend) and we saw the nicer side to Bangkok, which was very refreshing. ! Infact, bangkok is growing on us...But could this be because we are off to OZ tomorrow. YIPEEEEE !
RIGHT YOU LOT, WE WANT LOTS OF EMAILS AND MESSAGES ... BECAUSE OTHERWISE WE FEEL UNLOVED AND WE CRY OURSELVES TO SLEEP EVERY NIGHT. !
THANKS TO THOSE OF YOU THAT DO LOVE US AND HAVE EMAILED AND TEXT.
NEXT STOP OZ ...
BYE FOR NOW
