Hey all!!! Sorry we haven't updated for a while, the net was more expensive in Koh Phangan so we weren't really on it all that much. We had a fantastic time there and we are missing the beach already!! Met some lovely people, now we know how to play backgammon so we have bought a board and we are slowly becoming masters of the game ;) We travelled to Bangkok and stayed for a couple of nights were we ate loads of chicken schnitzel, hummus, mashed potato and salad. not very thai we know but god its good!!!!! We also got our malaria tablets, considering they are so expensive at home we are glad we waited, they were an absolute bargain out here and no side effects as yet so fingers crossed it will stay that way!!!
We got up at 3.45am this morning to get a taxi to the airport so that we could catch our flight to cambodia, bit of a nightmare!!! We were both tired and the taxi driver took us to the wrong airport, great!!! good job we left real early as he had to drive across the other side of the city to get to the right 1!! The flight was only an hour, def better than a 15 hour bus ride that we would have had to take if we wouldnt have flown!!!
Our guesthouse picked us up from the airport and we had our first tuk tuk experience. I know we keep going on about how crazy the drivers are over here but it just gets worse the further along we go!! In cambodia there are hardly any traffic lights or road markings and you can drive on whatever side of the road you want!! There are motorbikes everywhere carrying 3 people at time and its just mad, takes forever to cross a road!! :) Anyways our guest house is great, people are really friendly but we had a power cut pretty much as soon as a we got there and theres been no air con since, its been a hot and sticky day wandering the city. Overall though Cambodia seems alot more friendly than any of the places weve been to so far but its very dusty and dirty. We constantly have mud splashed up our legs and backs so we fit in very well :) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Duncan - Thanks for the emssage we went to MBK and got loads of bargains, none for us though unfortunately, all gifts!!!
