So we have officially started our tour now and we spent our 2nd night in thailand on an overnight train which was an interesting experience! me and siobhan shared a bunk bed and luckily i shotgunned the bottom bunk which turned our to be the better deal i think. it was a rough nights sleep as the train was oooold and its breaks were pretty s***ty and you practically shot out your bed everytime the train slowed.
we arrived bright and early for breakfast at a local place and then got a songtheaw to khoa sok where we are staying for the next few days (a songthaew is basically a piuck up truck with an open end where we all sit..was great fun to start with but we ended up with mega numb bums). we are staying in the most angelic place ever..we are all completely in love with it and its stunning and right in the middle of like a tropical rainforest.
we went tubing today which was basically sitting in rubber dingys and floating round the river which was soo relaxing but the water was minging and we were all worried about leeches! then we went to a palce and fed bananas to the monkeysn which was so cute!
tomorrow is the start of our elephant trek where basically all we do is sit on top of an elephant!! cant wait!
