Hi all, just a quick message to let you know we arrived in Bangkok this morning - to cut a long story short our flight was delayed from manchester to london, and BA decided that we wouldn't make it to our next flight in time - although they didn't tell us this - so we ran to the gate and got there in time, but annoyingly enough they'd taken our names off the list so wouldn't let us get on! To rub it in another guy arrived after us - also from a delayed flight and they let him on! Anyway, we stayed in an airpot hotel at heathrow and then got a thai airways flight the next day... oh yeah, and my (V) bag isn't here! Hopefully on the next flight to BK and they'll deliver it to me! Anyway - so far Bangkok seems amazing - not as hot as i thought, but still pretty warm when wandering around, very busy and colourful - our bright pink taxi weaved its way between the rush hour traffic along the highway to the city and dropped us off on khao san road, where we immediately got offered a tuk tuk ride to wherever we wanted for 10 bahts! this then continued as we made our way to our hotel - pretending to know where we were going! Fortunately BA had told them that we needed the following night instead so everything is fine, we've also booked in for the next two nights at another hotel - the one we wanted to go to with the pool on the roof! So, next, i think we're gonna have a read of the guide book and do a bit of exploring... will upload some photos soon...

Lots of Love from Victoria and Selina, xxx
