Day 1 - We're here!!! It still hasn't really sunk in but we are. Flew Quantas from Heathrow. Dan pulled her hamstring before we even left the airport. We both managed to get some sleep on the night flight. It's 7hrs ahead here so I'm writing this at 2am (which is 7pm in the UK).
We just used Dan's iPod touch to skype home because the hostel has free wi-fi so got to speak to mum and Mike then Teresa, Amy and Alan. Oh yeah, and Dan spoke to her dad via skype too. I said hi. What a way to meet Dad for the first time! ;-)
Khaoshan Road is like one big Market with stalls running down either side. Dan's bought a dress for 200 Thai baht which is approx £4 and we had a couple of drinks in an Irish Bar (yes they really are everywhere). It was lovely and warm (33 degrees) and even though it rained we dried off really quickly. Spoke to a lovely couple Layne and James who gave us some great tips of places Layne had been so far.
We're gonna get our bearing and visit the Grand Palace tomorrow before heading up to Chang Mai to ride Elephants. Peace Out homes! ;-) x
