Asia » Thailand » North-West Thailand » Chiang Mai May 21st 2014

Hello dear readers, Yesterday was a bit of a chill out day. The majority of the people I arrived with were shipping out so I decided to have a chill out day. The morning was spent lazing by the pool working on my tan, reading and dipping in and out of the water keeping cool in the baking heat. Around 2pm most of the pool was in the shade so I headed indoors showered and changed and headed out for food, the ATM and to have a wander round Chiang Mai. First stop the ATM to check my new bank card was working and yay! All ok. Next stop food I headed for the place we went to on Sunday a place called Prego and had the chicken with cashew nuts again as it was delicious. ... read more

Good evening readers I hope you are well ************* you may needed to edit this before passing to mum! ************** So today's blog is about my experiences with tigers and lady boys (I put tygers as a homage to the Tygers of Pan Tang for those of you who know them, so it's not a spelling mistake lol) A group of us took the opportunity to visit Tiger Kingdom where you get to interact with the big cats one on one. You can choose big, medium, small and very small. We took a tuk tuk which is big enough to take 8 of us, so not like the ones I'm used to. When we got there two of the girls opted to go and see the snake show about 10 mins ride away as one of ... read more

Asia » Thailand May 19th 2014

May 15th-Well after a night spent at the very 'basic' homestay with no air con and mosquito nets that still let the bugs in, we boarded the boat again for not 10 but 12 hours! The homestay had a save the children billboard up and like loads of chickens, pigs and puppies. The kids gave us little flowers and we tried to catch the piglets but they were way to quick for us. I got bitten to shit on my legs so I've bought some tiger balm which is supposed to stop the itching...we shall see. The boat was almost unbearable as I felt so minging! I just stayed in my pjs until we got to our hotel in Chiang khong. That night when we went out for food I felt drunk as I was so ... read more

Evening everyone I hope you are well Firstly I can repot that my cash card has now made it's way to me here in Thiland with the help of my support team back in the UK so a huge thank you to them. I had to wait around until 11.50 as it was due to arrive between 9 and 12 today so they got there just in the nick of time lol. It was my intention to visit the grand palace but it closes at 3.30pm and is of course on the other side of town to where I am. I headed for the sky train again taking the cheap shuttle bus as I did yesterday and bought my ticketMoor my destination station.I had to change lines at the Siam centre to get to the station ... read more

Evening everyone. I had a bit of a slow morning and then nipped to the post office to send some stuff back home which I had collected over the last few weeks, and some stuff I had bought, and the book from the Buddhist monk. Sent on a slow boat from Thailand, I've gone for the one month delivery time lol. This afternoon I took the little bus up to the sky train and then took the sky train to the city centre to have a wander around. They have 3 shopping centres all connected so it's a massive complex. I stumbled across the Thai equivalent of the sea life centre lol some bought a ticket for there and Madame Tussaud's. So had a nice wander around the aquarium and took lots of photos and gened ... read more

Asia » Thailand » South-West Thailand » Railay May 14th 2014

Tuesday morning we left Cambodia and headed to the beaches of Southern Thailand. After a quick layover in Bangkok, we were off to Krabi. Once we landed we took a taxi and then a quick boat ride and about an hour later we pulled up to the cutest little beach town. Railay Beach felt like a complete dream. We laughed, swam, talked, played cribbage (for those of you who care, I skunked my dad, eli skunked my dad and mom and I skunked Eli and dad... WASSUPPPP), hung out, drank, boated, played, laughed some more, slept, ate, ate some more and enjoyed ourselves for 4 days straight. It was an absolutely amazing 4 days of adventure and bliss. You can always find us down by the beach boiiiiiii Until next time Thailand!... read more
