Edit Blog Post
Published: July 11th 2012
We have finally arrived back in the UK (yes, even Emma!) so here is the final installment of our blog, written, very morosely, from a kitchen in Surrey rather than a hostel in South East Asia. Life sucks. None of us are glad to be back in rainy old England so we though we'd brighten up your day with our last blog entry.
Our final days in Asia were spent in Bangkok where we spent the day winding our way through the Weekend Market. After the cooler temperates we'd experienced in Indonesia, Bangkok was roasting and we were soon sweaty like four pieces of cheddar, left out on a summer afternoon. It was grim. We did, however, manage to find some good buys and if you have the pleasure of visiting any of our bedrooms next year you will be pleased to see that we've bought alot of Asia home with us. Nothing illegal though, before you ask, didn't fancy a Bridget Jones style Thai prison experience.
Bangkok did give us our last and final addition to the infamous favourite list, so here goes everyone; this is Becky, Lissie, Catrina and Emmas' favourite people in Asia 2012... (we apologise
for the lack of names; there were too many to remember and some of them were long and complicated!)
