Kirky’s Travel Diary

Wednesday, 18 May 2005

Location: Bangkok, Thailand

MapI finished Australia with a couple of days in Byron Bay and then a couple more in Sydney, taking the opportunity to say a quick hello to The Howes' who are currently sailing around Australia.

I arrived in Bangkok last Friday evening and was immediately hit by the heat and humidity. Having perfected my smiley 'no thank you' face to ward off all of the Tuk Tuk and motorcycle taxi drivers, I'm heading north up to Chang Mai on the overnight train. Bangkok gets to you soon enough.

Since Friday I've been to all of the touristy places (Grand Palace, Wat Pho (largest reclining Buddha), Wat Arun and The Vimanmek mansion), met up with EsJay and been over to Ko Samet for a couple of days. A beautiful island rain or shine.

Over the next week or so I'm sure there'll be some trekking involved and possibly a jaunt over the border into Laos.
