Well today we went our separate ways and did our own thing. Adam chose to go down hill mountain biking on the jungle and i did a thai cooking course. Both had an excellent day and came home with lots of good stories from our day. Adam says it was the best down hill riding he has ever done, meanwhile i have cooked and ate my way through seven courses (check out pics of my kitchen creations), i now know how the fat buddha feels. Also ate my body weight in garlic in the hope those pesky mossies will piss off and bite adam instead. From now on ive insisted that adam becomes a man of the gentry and throws himself in the path of any incoming mossies heading my way. Finished the day with a ... read more

Wowsers!! Epic day today, loving chiang mai so far. Much nicer vibe than bangkok and nowhere near as mental! Started the day with a bit of bamboo rafting down a local river. I was surprised just how fast those buggers went, shot the rapids thai style. Thought we was going in the drink a couple of times......... After that and still soaking wet we trekked down to a waterfall which was beautiful, the steps on the way back up however, was not!! Heat and humidity are not your friend when trekking that's for sure. Met an american couple who we ended up spending the day with, much laughing went down, especially at the chinese that turned up on the trip in heels and didnt want to get wet. Every thai bloke did their best to soak ... read more

Another great day, rode the bangkok underground. Booked our over night sleeper train to chiang mai, local boat up to the grand palace. No king today but decided to leave this until the end of the trip as its a bank hol ere and mega busy. Seen the sleeping budha lady. Craving some clean air and space so gonna tune in and drop out in a local park. Ps solved the mystery of the missing 40 dollars, when we checked in the hotel i tipped the bell boy 20 baht, adam tipped him 40 dollars!!! He got his dollars n bahts mixed up...........doh! Thats around 2 months wages ere, no wonder he keeps smiling and opening doors for us.........oh well, thats our good deed for the trip and has to be good karma..... Peace n love ... read more

Well we made it (just), not without drama tho...... Almost didn't get on the flight at heathrow, made it with 5 mins to spare. Never will we check in online again. Airline say they didnt get our check in so gave our seats away, so nowhere for us to sit. After alot of aggro and adam being threatened with the police because he was getting angry they let us on but had to sit apart. For those that know what im like with flying you can just imagine the state of my head, then airline was questioning if i was fit to fly........anyway drama over and the flight was fine and so was i! All this before we left england!!! In bangkok now having a chang beer, fab and crazy place. Been on a tuk tuk ... read more
