Got of the train and had breakfast before the 2hour bus journey to krabi....wen we got ther i was well pleased to see the ocean and sand!! haha!! Krabi is a beach resort and well set up for tourists, much better than bangkok. We arrived at our bungelows and sorted out what trips we wanted to do and stuff. I chose to do the island trip to Koh Phi Phi wer the Beach was filmed and also doin elephant trekking. After this was all sorted we got the keys to r bungelow and me and michellle dumped r stuff and headed strait for the beach. the bungelows are lovely, like little houses but only a bedroom and bathroom. got a double bed so woohoo!! thers 2 beaches here so we went to them both to see what they wer like. both pretty dead on. Got a biot sunburnt even tho i was wearing factor 15 and 25 so im lucky i didnt put on my usualy number 6 or 2!!!! met the group for dinner bout half 7 then went for a drink. had fried rice with shrimp for dinner was lovely! didnt stay out too long as we had to get up at 8 for our trip. havnt been drunk once this trip so far shock horror!! but plenty of time for that!!

12/3/2007 - Had a lie in this mornings, got up about 10.30am and headed for brekfast then the beach. Done some sunbathing for a few hours just and had a nosey round the shops. Picked up some cool presents and bargain prices, my bartering is getting better! Went to an italian for dinner ad a few drinks in some bars after. Have elephant trekking in the morning so looking forward to that!
13/3/2007 - Went elephant trekking this morning. was pretty good but a bit scarey! Had my own elephant and to get on it had to climb this like tree house type thing then climb on to the elephants back. The elephant was huge so i was pretty high off the ground. we went through the jungle which was cool altho i was practically vertical as the elephant went up and down the rocks and stuff so was fearing for my life and some points haha!! My guide told me to get off the chair on the elephants back and sit on the actually elephant !! so i guess you could say i was riding the elephant bareback!! After the trek we watched the elephants washing which was really cool, they scrub themselves up against bracnhes then rinse off with ther trunk! we got to feed the aswell. headed to the beach for an hour after the trekking then went for a thai massage. was cool, i think they stretched every muscle in my body it was like a full gym workout not was i expected at all but all good anyway! The group all went out for dinner to the blue mango not too far from out bungelows. i had a gorgeous steak and most of michelles cuz she wernt that hungry so result for me! had a nearly nite as headed to malayasia at 530am!
