got up at half 7 today and got ready and picked up to go on a trek! we travelled in a minibus for about an hour and a half to the bottom of the mountain wher we were dropped off and the walking began!! for those of you who know me know that i hate walking, well please picture me walking up a mountain for an hour to get to some elephants. oh god, ud be glad u werent there, i was moaning sooo much haha glad i can laugh about it now but i was serioulsy wondered what i had signed myself up 4!! when we got to the elephants i was sooo happy to stop walking for a bit....until we got on the elephant for a ride!!
oh my god i was soooooooo scared, imagine being on top of an elephant going up and down a mountain with like the most unsecure seat ever and a guide sitting on the eleplants head! alton towers, eat your heart out!! at first i was so scared i wanted to get off but i soon got used to it and the elephants were so cute. i have some wicked pics. myabe tommorrow or sunday ill be able to put them on wen i have more time.
so, after the elephant trek there was yet more walking UPHILL to a huge waterfall. i was so happy to hear that waterfall im telling you haha we stripped off in to our bikinis and jumped straight in, we were absolutely filthy at this point so we had a good wash and cooled off before lunch. lunch was noddles and fruit and was all really nice and kept our energy up for the rest of the day. we got picked back up by the tour bus at this point and told 'no more walking' YES!! so off we went to meet a man with an ox cart for a short ride! it was a little rickety cart with like 7 of us in and the driver and 2 oxs pulling it, i was convinced it was gonna snap at one point - imagine tha!!
the next part of the trek was the best part - white water rafting!!! wow it was wicked, talk about adrenalin rush. ive got a wicked pictire that i bought from there that i need to fine a scanner sumwhere and scan it in! so funny. me gill n liz on this big dingy thing with helmets and life jackets on and proper screaming!! haha so funny. oh by the way, adam didnt come on the trek because he fell over at bowling and tore a ligament so he had to go to the hospital last nite but hes ok he just needs to rest. 2 injured soldiers already!!
so me n gill now fully want to take up white water rafting cos it was so fun haha ace. we finished the day off with a visit to a couple of hill tribes where i couldnt help but do a bit of shopping, even tho my backpack is already bursting - ooppps!! an hour and a half to go home on the minibus and i slept all the way back. not sure whether to go out 2nite or not cos im well tired but its friday night!! hmmm, ill see what every1 else is doing...
lots of love x x x x x x x x x x
