The travels have began.. 1st stop was bangkok, thailand!
This place is insane!
we landed at bangkok airport and straight away all plans and talks were out the window, when we manged to blag a cheap lift with a random local women, no idea if she was taking us to our hotel or some sleazy drug den to be used as lady boys!
We did however turn up at the right place and it was straight out on the town, tuk-tuk drivers absolutley everywhere!
Thai boxing fight night was the 1st nights entertainment, which seems to be a favourite for the locals as it was absolutly rammed! however we didnt think much of the boxers as there all skinny midgets and james was itching to get in the ring and have a go at them!
2nd day was the tour of the city, we walk outside our hostel and our tuk tuk driver from the night before is there waiting for us, 100baht ($2.50)for a whole days driving sounded to good to be true! we visited all the main temples and palaces doing the standard tourist thing, taking photos of everything. For the afternoon we went to the MBK shopping centre, which is massive, after getting lost a few times and got a few bargins at the stalls we headed home in what was a terrential rain! which is surprisingly nice.. your getting wet but its warm (so basically like gettin pissed on in the showers after football)
We also managed to book a train/trip to Chaing Mi which is where we're off to next, getting the overnight sleeper train...
oh and no, there hasnt been any lady boys yet!
