Sat in an internet cafe in downtown bangkok writing this! First of all to let you all know i am fine and emjoying myself very much!
The journey here was monumental in that it was so long! The flight didn't get off to the smoothest of takeoffs due to heavy cloud. i've flown a lot and oh my god i thought we were going down as it was shaking like a beast. The rest of the flight was perfect and quantas were ace! watched stepbrothers the film on there and almost wet myself sooo funny!
Arrival in bangkok was as expected a major culture shock, more for simon then me i think. Despite all my pre-reading up on things we still got into the wrong type of taxi but fortunately he took us straight to the Koh San Road where we wanted to go! phew! :) Got a room at the D&D inn which is where i wanted to stay! Me and si then went out for some food and a bit of exploring! I had some glass noodles with chicken (check me experimenting), i can recommend it although was a bit on the the sweet side! They don't do Gary portions here! :)
We then hit some bars and a couple of beers (they are like 8% here) turned into a lot of beers! Was a bit tipsy singing rock tunes in an irish bar till the small hours of the morning.
Today has been a bit of a non day as we slept far too long. In a way it was good as it has been raining here all day! Big day 2moro as it is gonna be a bit of anventure to Koh Phangan!
