mel and marks extended holiday!!
well, what an exciting 3days!!!took ages getting to chang mai, 12 hours on aleaking bus!!!!mel got really ill so stayed in the first couple of nights then signed up for a trekking tour. we travelled to pai which is a jungle in north thailand.we had two tour guides called beckham and crazy man and they were brilliant. we went on a cramped bus and travelled up mountains, once we got there we trekked for two hours, it was well haed work going up hills and having to literally climb!!fell over lots but had to be careful cause if we weren't careful the drop was 100m high!!!!it was so steep and dangerous and extremely hard!! we stayed in a treehouse and after dinner all the local villagers came and we had a song and dance with them, it was brilliant!!!! next day was more hard trekking, mel fell behind and nearly got lost!!!we then went on an elephant ride for an hour, there were little baby elephants it was so cute!!!just as we got off the elephants they went mad it was well scary it was all cause someone was winding up the baby elephant!!!! after that we trekked again, we all got so muddy and dirty but it was great though. there was a group of 12 of us and every one was great!!!the second night we all stayed up drinking and smoking some off the local stuff!!!and we played games and got covered in soot!!!the toilets at the treehouses were just little squats!!!on the third day we trekked for 2hours then we went bamboo rafting for a hour down the river. it was brilliant trying to steer and not fall off onto the rocks!!!!all of the hard trekking was def worth it to go on the elephants!!definately the best three days ever, right now we're in a bar so i'm now gonna get back to my drink!!! its bangkok again tomorrow then the beaches!!!! speak soon
