Ok though i would try and fill you in on my trip so far so this may be a bit of a read by hay its friday and who want to work anyway.
So we got to Bangkok after spending 6 hour in Hetrow how boring was that although i will say something for it the pints in the pub were the cheapest by a long way. So we had a couple to settle the old nerves which by this stage were getting worse and worse but the exictment was also building as me and Doald wentinto quite mode and muled over life. (and what we were doing).
Once on the plane were sitting next to a guy from Sweden he was a little mad but very cool he was reading the Di Vinci code. So the plane well it was a long journey with on stops and my TV stop working half way through which was not very good. On to are arrivel we got to Bangkok airport and for some reson i though it would be in the center of town but how wrong was i it was about 2 hours away from are hotel. So we got picked up by are intrip person who was to organize the taxi which was great. Once in the taxi we meet an American from New York very cool guy so we though we would have a drink with him that night only to find that his hotel was about 20 mins away from are's so that was the end of that no walking in Bangkok at night.
So first night we had a quick walk round the block and even just out side the hotel room we were offerd a sex show which was very funny. we did not go the see!!!!! So we just took it easy and stayed in the hotel for dinner which was great and then went to bed nice and early. Any onto r first full day in Bangkok whcih tuesday the 28th of feb now this was a great day it was ment to be the start of r trip but as people were still arriving thier was nothing organized so we decide to go for a walk in the local area around. So it was about 12 oclock it was so hot hot very hot, we walk though a local park which was great and just as we came to the other side we ran into a school teacher who was amazing he was Thai and very friendly so he started telling use place we should go and see. He took r map and drew the place and thier names on to it and then we though we might try and walk to all the place but he suggested that we take a TUK TUK which is a little bike with 3 wheels and a cradle seat in the back. So the TUK TUK cost use 60 Bat for one hour and took use to all the place on r map so we visted 3 temple the Marble temple, the Asian temple and the Export market. These were all amazing and i have lots of video footage which i will download to you all later. So anyway just to give you an idea of how the TUK TUK gets about take a bit of Fernado Alonso, a bit of Colin McRea and the idea that you cannot be killed by any other moving vechial.
Although the TUK TUK was only to get use from place to place it makes the trip so much more fun.
So we got back to the Hotel about half 3 so it was tiume for a nape to keep use right and health. So slepted untill about 5.30 and they we went to meet r group who we would be traveling with. Now let me tell you a little about r group we have 2 americans Abbey and Matt brother and sister very cool like to drink!!!! Then an Aus family who are Tanya, Lisa, Wayne (who 60th birthday it was) and Christine. Also very cool and a lot of fun. Then thier is a couple from New Zeland Richard and Sonya who r cool to if not a bit quite. then one japaness Tomo and are group leader Tea both class as well. So we had a wee group meeting and then out for dinner. In the city that never sleeps you can do anything late at night so we did.So that was r first full and only day in Bangkok it was off to cambodia tomarrow.
So its now Wednesday Morning around 6.00 oçlock in the morning and we come down to find that we have to travel for 10 hours on the bus now that sound like a lot and it was all i can say is thank God for air con. So the first 2 hours out of Bangkok were great we had tarmak on the roads and no whole or very few so it was smooth sailing. But the we got to the Boarder and it all goes a bit pete tong for here. We go through the board crossing which we have to walk though only to find that thier is a real lack of any form of tarmak on any part of any road. so we get on r bus and all i can say is thank god i have strong bones cause they would have been rattled to bits if i didn't. So we must have only had to travel 200miles in 8 hours but with on road or what we would call road to travel on we averaged about 10mph which was amizing for the state of the road. so anyway all you can do for the whole 8 hours is look out the window at the poverty people r living in thier r now word i can us to decride it for you. I just want you to think of nothing and times it by 10 and thats what these people have. So we got here by 6.30 that night and arranged to go out for dinner at 7.45 which was great as it was waynes birthday. So Donald, myself, Tanya , Lisa , Mat and Abbey all decide to hit the town hard in celeibration. So we went to a local put on thier strip bar street were a bottle of beer is $2 and got totally load as only we know best. It was much fun. thier was no dancing but lots of pool playing. We then to get back to the hotel took a TUK TUK which was only ment to have 4 but we got 6 into it which was amazing fun and back to me hotel to await me hangover from hell the next day!!!!!
More to come later!!!
