Travelling through Thailand is like a dream... After practically starving myself in India, arriving into Thailand was like arriving into a Paradise. All the streets are lined with fruit stalls, making every imaginable fruit shake under the sun, fruit topped pancakes, sliced mango and pineapples on stick. Everywhere I turned there was something delicious to choose from. Let's just say my jeans no longer hang on me.
As I made my way down the tube walkway from the airplane, a bronze coloured girl, Viviane from Brazil, asked me whether I knew where I was going to go in Bangkok. I had to reply that "I had absolutely no idea" and she too had no clue, so we teamed up for moral support... arriving into town early in the morning with barely any sleep, two tired minds are always better than one when negotiating cab fares or asking for directions in sign language.... We were standing in line at passport control and I noticed another friendly face behind us. We struck up a conversation with her, Kate was going to be an English teacher in Thailand and had visited Bangkok before... Just minutes later the three of us were admiring the view

out of our taxi and ended up in a hostel near the famous Koh San Road, sharing a room for the next few days.
Viviane and I travelled together for the next few weeks and met up with Kate for the Full Moon party on the islands down south.
