On we go!
One last bus journey tonight to take us to our final destination - Bangkok.
We have slightly rushed Thailand, but Dan and I both travelled here four years ago, and so felt like we have seen and done everything that we wanted to, but that is not to say we will not and have not made the most of our time so far.
Sitting around for a whole day is not a waste. I stood up a couple of times yesterday to get a drink. I even managed to make it into the sea for a swim. And besides, we deserve a rest. We have been on the move pretty consistently for four months. I think a couple of days doing nothing on the beach is an entitlement - something the Gods of traveling owe us!
And we did manage a night out dancing on Monday. We rocked that place like it was 1999 - although listening to some of the music you could be forgiven for thinking it was in fact 1989! They are heavy into their 80s power ballads, but no amount of Berlin and Belinda Carlisle can ruin an evening for me. If anything they make it better!
We have enough energy left for some Bangkok fun - although don't panic Mum, not that kind of fun. We are sensible young men, and will behave ourselves just so!
