Well Hi everyone (that is reading this lol!) - eventually had time to sit down and get on net properly, been so busy - which is a good thing, lots to do and see.
Well arrived safely on Thursday afternoon just in time for rush hour, so stuck in Bangkok traffic for good couple of hrs until got to hotel. Was supposed to meet my group at 6 but arrivedat half past 6 so missed it! Partly taxi drivers fault dropping me off at wrong hotel to begin with then needed to get a tuk tuk round the corner to the actual hotel was staying at! Have done quite a bit of tuk tuck riding around. Good fun, they are mad drivers weving in and out of the traffic.
So went out on 1st night down Ko San Rd got somthing to eat first before getting few drinks and ennded up at a club/ wasn't tired at all, and was up at half 7 the next day wide awake! So out the 2nd day at 9.30 went straight to grand palace and had a look around was amazing, very bling bling! Cant get photos up yet - this computer is way out of date so not gonna bother yet! So then saw quite a few more wats (temples) and buddahs, Friday was actually a public holiday in Thailand, so was very busy and lots of people praying at the temples. Then went on a river cruise for an hour, before more temple spotting, one you would climb up was very steep, had good views of city.
We all met at 4.30 that eveing and went off to train st to reach where I am now, Ko Sok. It was an overnight train of about 13 - 14 hours, I had the top bunk, and it was not long so you can imagine me crouched up on that thing all night. So then we got off train at 6am this morn and got a 'truck'to take us into the jungle, where we are now, so beautiful and SO hot, its not funny you only have to move slighly and you sweat. So staying in these lovely bungalows in the jungle, very traditional and rustic!
Off in a minute 'tubing' where bascially we get into a rubber ring and go down the mountain in it on the river. Sounds great fun. Then tomorrow full day on the lakes on rafts and swimming in the lakes looks great from the photos.
Anyway betta be off now, will try and keep in touch as soon as can. Sorry not more organised as well with titles of blog etc. Even forgot my passowrd to this thing so had to think waht that was again before could start!
Spk to u soon./ and will get photos uploaded asap.
