Just backdating as we had no internet connection at the river kwai, but it was amazing...... (No buddhas though!)
Arrived in Kanchanburi and had a look around war cemetary and museum - saw the original bridge which was built and then walked across the actaul metal one! We then carried on north to the death railway and had a ride on a train with some locals - it was just like catching the train to work - no seats!!!! We then went back to our headquarters which was a raft on the river which was called Kitti Raft - very amusing - run by some local thais. Instead of carrying on with the three hour walk to a waterfall, we retreated to our hotel early - what a good job we did - we spent all afternoon in the luxurious pools with their own waterfalls and pool brs. had dinner at the hotel - our first thai meal!!!! Our raft house is aamzing - brand spanking new, and so so so nice, think we might have been a bit spoilt!!!!
We have set this site up to keep family and friends up to date on our 'Round the world' trip which we are taking this April! This is our first backpacking experience, but are sure that we will love it - hopefully it won't be our last!... full info
