We got woke up this morning by the cleaners knocking on our door at 10am. We tried to get back to sleep after but it didn't happen. We got up and got ready and checked out of our room at 12 and headed down to town.
We went to the big shopping centre and got a KFC- made a lovely change from thai food all the time. We did shopping for snacks for the bus and headed back to the accommodation for 3 to wait for the bus at half past. On the way back we saw a dead dog in a clear plastic bin liner at the edge of the path- it was so awful!! The mini bus came early, which was good to get us out of the heat- and then we headed for the coach.
We got to the coach around half 4 ready for us to set off at half 5- just over a 12 hour journey! The coach was pretty good- it had enough space at our feet and wasn't squashed at all! Our seat laid back pretty far too and we were given blankets, a bottle of water and a free snack of Thai bread with custard on- which was a bit weird.
We stopped at 7 for some dinner at some random stopping place that was like an outdoor shop. We just had a pot noodle and had to get back on the bus after 20 minutes. That was it for the night- all the lights were turned off on the bus and they put a Thai film on. Me and Nath just played games on the tablet for a couple of hours and tried to get our head down for the night after that, knowing that we would keep waking up through the night and we had to be up at 6am anyway!
