So we're here, safe and sound! Slept like babies on the plane, did not even know we'd taken flight we were fast asleep!! (Because the plane was slightly delayed). Booked into a decent hostel for first night and ventured out to Koh Sahn road. It's really warm and sticky, but we're getting used to it. Tried the local food, which is delicious and watched that world go by whilst sampling the local beer. We also met up with Clare and Tom (Rach's friends from uni) who are just on the end of 3 weeks round Thailand so were giving lots of tips.
Tomorrow.... we venture out into the Bangkok sightseeing scene, visiting the Grand Palace as well as booking our train down to the South.
Off to bed now, thank you for all your lovely messages.
Speak soon, love ciara and rach xxx
