Home Sweet Home!
We are now back home in the not so sunny UK. Thanks to all of you who have followed our travels on our blog and especially those who sent us messages/comments.
Our final few weeks I will summarise extremely quickly (not sure if anyone is reading this anymore!).
We got the ferry from Phuket to Koh Lanta, arriving on a much quieter, nicer island. Checked into Lanta Sea House and spent a week in the sun on the beach, in the sea and not much else! Back to Phuket then back to Bangkok to do a bit of shopping. However shopping did not turn out to be cheap like we expected (we think as we now compare to shops like Primark at home) so a game of bowling and few other trips out finished off our time.
Flew to Hong Kong on our penultimate flight. Really liked Hong Kong and recommend it. Went up the cable car on Hong Kong island, Star Ferry, Nathan Road, Ocean Park (where we saw pandas), shopping, eating and generally throwing things out of our rucksack for a bit of therapy! After wearing some of the same clothes so many times for 6 months we enjoyed putting them in the bin.
Final 13 hour flight home to Terminal 5 Heathrow (thanks Janice and Chris for picking us up at silly oclock) then it is back to reality for us (when we finally recover from the jet lag).
