Heloo everyone! Sorry we haven't updated you in like a month now...we've been far too busy!! So, where to start...
We spent our last week in South Africa in Cape Town where we did the Cape Peninsula Tour, visiting seal island, seeing penguins on a beach, mountain biking and went to the most south west point of south africa! We also celebrated Aimee's birthday by spending the day at the waterfront and taking a speed boat ride which was crazy. Then in the evening we went and saw some live music!!
We arrived in Bangkok, where we stayed for 3 days, visiting 3 temples, seeing the golden buddah, the reclining buddah and the standing buddah! We spent most of our time on Khoa San Road...a busy market street full of stalls, restuarants and bars. This was also where Jade got her hair dreadlocked and Charlie got his nipple pierced!!
Our next stop was up to Chiang Mai, where we planned on doing a lot of sight seeing as its supposed to be very cultural here. However we arrived on the 11th which was the start of Thai New Year (songkran) - a massive water fight lasting 4 days!! So we spent everyday joining the locals around the town with our water pistols, getting absolutly soaked and loving their celebration style! We wernt able to take any photos though because of how soaked we got! In the evenings we also saw some Thai Boxing and spent most nights with a few people we had met checking out the bars and local beer!
After just 5 days we were back on our coach for two 12 hour journeys, heading down south to an island called Koh Phan-gan where we experienced the Full Moon Party - the best party EVER!! And spent our time chilling on the beach or exploring the island in our Jeep.
We arrived in Koh Samui, another island, on Thursday, and were greeted by some nice big storms! However luckily the sun was back today and we have spent the whole day in the warm sea...getting redder and redder!
We have 2 weeks left in Thailand so will be making the most of the sun and good food!!
Speak to you soon
Love Jade, Aimee and Charlie
