So, it seems the time may have come to actually start doing this blog! I've gone back in time to do this so it might not work!
Where to start? Let's start at the very beginning! We flew from Heathrow to Bangkok, Thailand. Everything was going smoothly... Until the pilot told us we had to land in Chiang Mai (one hour on the plane away from Bangkok) because of really bad storms. This wouldn't have been so bad if we hadn't already been delayed at Heathrow because of other people's bags being on the plane and actually getting the sleeper train TO Chiang Mai.. FROM Bangkok the day after!
So, we finally arrived in Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport - pouches in place - about four hours late, and with this, thinking we might have needed to get visas.... we didn't, just the signs in the airport were a little misleading! (There were other people from the UK asking the same!)
It was now night time again, so we went straight to the hostel. Problem, the taxi driver didn't know where the hostel was.. He had to ring to find out.. we were clueless, all we had was an address!
After leaving the bags in the hostel, we went out to find some food. We didn't! So we went back to the hostel to find out if they did food.. they didn't - only breakfast - but we could order a take-away delivery! ..So, KFC! -When in Rome - Do as.. we didn't! So food, shower and bed!
