Hey all hope your all well! My last blog was about the jungle trek so i'll go from there! The next few days we just really chilled out! The day after the trek we mainly relaxed by the pool and then went for a massage again, i had a full body oil massage this time which was quality but i couldn't afford to relax too much as i was completely starkers and i had a feeling that if i drifterd off to sleep the group probably would have done a runner with my clothes!!! On the night we went to a quality restaurant which was on the river which was pretty perfect!
The next day we headed off to Thaton which is really quiet so theres not too much to do! Our rooms were on the river and it was really peacefull! In the afternoon we headed off to a temple on the hill which had some absolutely unbelievable 360 views. We also saw the Monks performing a chanting ceremony! That night we just sat out by the river with a bottle of Hong Thong (it's not a patch on the sang som) and had a few games off cards.
The next day we headed out to Chang Rai and the golden triangle! We had to go across the river kok on a long tailed boat, which got stuck half way so we had to get out an push! When we arrived we had a bit of a kodak moment with an absolutely massive python - i'll get the picture up when i get chance - and then headed of towards the golden triangle, the area where thailand meets laos and burma! The view was again incredible, Thailand has so many scenic views its unreal! We then headed to the opium house which had loads of interesting stuff there!
We had to be up at 6:30 the next morning so an early night would have probably been a good idea - but that just wasn't going to happen! Me Jacob Shelley and Erika got a bottle of sang som and started to play ring of fire and ended up getting completely wasted, we finished off the first bottle in 30 minutes! Shelley and Jacob then headed off to get another bottle so we got another game on the go! Erika was starting to feel the effects so went to sleep, so me Jacob and Shelley sat outside the hotel and carried on drinking! We ended up talking to some hammered thai bloke who bought us some more beers and then this girl come along on a scooter! He told us she was his girlfriend but later he confessed that he was paying her for a 'good time'! He didn't talk to her once and she must of waited by the hotel entrance for about 45 minutes before deciding do one, so our Thai mate Spy missed out on his happy ending lol! We eventually turned it in at 5:30, an hour before we had to get up and i ended up sleeping on a welcome mate on the floor in the girls room - won't be trying that again in a hurry!!
The next day we were all pretty rough but it didn't matter too much as we were travelling most of the day and in the afternoon we got our night train back to Bangkok!
Right thats it for now, i'll fill you in on the rest later but as a little teaser i just tell you it involves more drunken antics and a ping pong show :) good times! Speak to you all soon!
