Hey all......so Thailand so far!! Well we stayed arrived in bangkok about 6 in the morning so as soon as we found somewhere to stay, unsurprisingly we spent most of the first day asleep, and then most of the evening drinking, lol!! Then spent most of the second day hungover, well me anyway, lol!! Ad did manage to see a few of the Bangkok sights though while i slept. Went to Siam square the next day - Emma you would have been in heaven!! It was the biggest, most amazing shopping centre i have ever seen!!!! - we then tried to go to one of Bangkoks famous markets although between three of us we had all failed to notice it was a weekend market and we were going on a thursday!!
We then got the bus to Kanchanaburi which is where 'The Bridge Over the River Kwai' was filmed, and have been here about five days as we love it too much, its soooo chilled out. Were staying at a hostel on the river, with big hammocks, cheap food and cheap beer so its proving very hard to leave, lol!! We have been to see the bridge and the museums though which were really interesting and we hired bikes and cycled out to the 'Dragon temple' about a 20km cycle in total, which was really impressive although if you look at the photos those steps are not even half of what we had to go up, suffice to say we were shattered when we got back!!!! Weve also ben to see a cave temple about 5km out of town and the photos are up to see, all pretty impressive stuff. One of the best days weve had so far was probably yesterday where we went to Erwhan falls, a seven tiered waterfall, took about and hour and a half to get to the top but so worth it when you got there, it was amazing and you could swim in all the pools on the way down. Although we did get freaked out by the fish that always nibble on your dead skin, not a feeling im ever gonna get used to!!
We are actually gonna make it out of here tomorrow though and are travelling up to Chang Mai in the north of Thailand with a friend of ours we met in Bangkok and were probably gonna stay for a about four days until we go to Laos.
Been gone for one month exctaly today, and seems to be going so quickly!! Miss you all and hope evryone is well! Will report back soon x x x x x x
