Sarah’s Travel Diary

Location: Bangkok, Thailand

MapJust a quick message to let you know we made it to the wonderful (and smelly) Bangkok. Been here two days now and starting to get used to the crazy place.

Didnt think the plane jorney would ever end - 12 hours in the smallest space tired and hangover is really not my idea of fun!!! After two hours I was nearly slitting my wrists - but after nearly a whole day of travelling we made it.

So here we are on the famous Khoa San Road. Its manic and smells awlful during the day, but everything is so so cheap! We went out for a proper meal last night with a few beers and it cost me a whole 2 pounds!! Bargain - I could get used to this.

Temperature here is very warm and humid but not too unbareable. Visited the Grand Palace today and it certainly is rather grand! Got a bit trigger happy with my sexy new camera so will send pictures very soon. Also had a ride in a Tuk tuk. Not sure if you've heard of these before but they are 3
wheeled transportation from hell! Very scary but also very funny!

Going to visit the floating market tomorrow. Basically you get taken round in a boat and all the stalls are boats. Should be fun.

Well I hope you are ok and hope to hear from you very soon.

Im off to get a bit merry on a few Singhas!!
