Entirely unnecessary... N we're in Hong Kong. Getting fat on good food n drink. N losing weight from our pockets! This place is well expensive! Will be updating blog soon with more piccies but internet is not cheap so prob be next week when in thailand! Enjoy the licking till then...
Will do you nutters! Who couldnt love angus! Make sure u write to us a lot too coz it makes us laugh n we have to spend 5 months with just eachother! Still its going ok so far! I was a bit paranoid that we might find it hard to meet other people coz we're a couple but nick reminded me that so far we havent really be out drinking coz up early for all the sites, n we not in places for that long so we'll see when we get to thailand n beyond i guess!! xxx
Hello!!! You KNOW upstairs is haunted! But if spend long enough up there i think they get used to u! Not that im encouraging tricky- i do know how addictive it can be (N i dont want to sound like a 'rent but) dont you have some important exams coming up?!?! Lol! Just so long as you're mixing the right amount of study n play then its all good! ;) n I am coming home soon just a few months to go! You'll get phil back b4 u know it n then only 2 months b4 im home 2!! Miss you loads too! Whens the prom btw??? xxx
Lol!! I dont think nicks impressed by your comments mr.wells he's in a strop n wont write anything. Yes i know i'll always lose him to the blackjack... We're playing a lot of cards so he doesnt feel too home sick n hes constantly getting his arse kicked at poker! Hope you are well n keep in touch! N hows things going with the new team?? xxx
We met a w**ker in a bar in beijing who was explaining to his mate that 'backpacker' has lost all its meaning these days, because its so easy to do.. n they can bring their little laptops.. blah blah, he went on to why he hated all smokers except the chinese-obviously! coz they all smoke, n oh my god! the state of korea...if you'd seen what i've seen...blah blah blah.. the poor girl he was talking to just kept nodding he head. We suspected that if she'd have been able to get a word in she'd have asked him for a smoke!! But he did have a point the hostels make it really easy, but its good coz you can still explore n see the sights without having to go an mission to do the little things like washing n eating! Hows the pub trade treating you btw?? Hope all is good. xxx
Oi! Maccy d's n KFC are everywhere here its hard to stay away from them! But dont be fooled n think you could hack it out here by surviving on fast food in my experience the chickens usually pink.... nice!

No lou! LADYBAR... not ladyBOY bar...Trust you!!! N he didnt go! yes you are as always on the ball! I thought about taking pics of the old dudes playgrounds 4 you but i thought it mite be a bit rude!! If i send you pics will you send me some of you n faye? I miss you both so much! Hope your exams are going ok!....xxx
You'll be glad to know taxi's are as cheap as chips and we have now plucked up the courage to try local nosh (no sign of toilet pig yet!) and found it very tasty. went to a huge duck restaurant and feasted on a whole daffy till we were stuffed (see pic of chefs carving ducks). we are now in Xi'an until the 16th when we depart for a 24hr journey to Hong Kong.
Anyway, hope everything is well and we miss you all.
Babs you do realise that 'mother pam' n everyone else read these yes?!? (Just making sure) It wasn't in the ambassadors house it was his gatehouse. N we didnt get to meet him! :( But i've been wondering ever since if its a chinese dude who is good at english or an english dude whos good at chinese?!? Anyway.... you did GSCE geogers alarns! You should know where china is! We're off to HK on 16th April n then we have a few months to get ourselves through Laos, thailand, nepal n into India. But i will keep you all updated no worries! Good luck with all your exams! xxx

Take care xxx
yes alright... it wasnt just me though... was nicko too. n we got there in the end! Am imagining leigh n lil' dulwich in the summer time n sad to be missing all the bbq's n stuff. Its probably because we jsut figured out we're hitting most our destinations in monsoon/rainy season!!! We are in HK now though n is lovely, but is quite rainy every now n again n expensive! yes i know upstairs in my house is haunted, phil said he saw things but i think he was making it up to scare his lil sister! Miss u 2. Catch up soon! xxx
Yes I would agree, if I was to come back to beijing it would be for the great wall. Also, if it's the summer palace picture I think your talking about then Bex is not impressed (hehe). :)
Well i will reply coz its nice of you to send me a message! I think about HSBC far to much than is needed n im soooo glad to be away from it! I heard you have a nice new job in london?? Hope it is better than HSBC n pays well too!!! I do miss the team n wonder how they're getting on with george i ask him but he never replys n considering he mistook me for a man in the photos! i think it'll be a while b4 i forgive him heehee Take care x
Nice to know we have fans....
Get a life.
Nick refuses to reply to you as he's taking the higher more mature ground! :P Hope your revising is going well! Have you done the oral yet???
Still smiling?? Why wouldn't i be?? Im in Thailand! They cannot have the warriors out in the open can they?? Cannot believe Phil's in Ecuador i didnt even realise he was going there! Hes such a monkey for losing his phone i really would have liked to talk to him about places in HK/Bangkok where to go etc.. but hes so hard to get hold of! Warmer is an understatement!! We are in the hottest months of the yr here n in thailand thats saying something! As for the room- i said you can always leave it till i pack up for uni when i get back?! Any word from norwich yet?? Love xxx
Hope oyu are ok. Am missing you loads. No im not getting any texts not since the kate n the baby one. We did get your message here though but i hadnt replied yet so i didnt post. I have just written an essay so hopefully you will be pleased with that for a few weeks before we have more news. I do have other stories obviously to tell u about at home but for now we have to keep it pretty short! Have brought u some presents frm a market in china i will be sending stuff home soon! I hope you will like them... Hope you are both ok n i want to see the pic of faye i miss her a lot!! N u 2 obviously!! How are the exams have they started or finished?? I dont know!! I did try to call you whilst in Hong Kong but you were engaged so hopefully will try again in Thailand if you tell me the best time! Love you guys
hello mum! as you can see by bex's messages bangkok was really hot but we mannaged to stay out of the sun most of the time so no sun burns (yet!). we are currently on an island off the east coast of thailand called Koh Tao learning to scuba, we just had our final exam which bex did really well and got 48 out of 50 and i only got 100% hehehe!! (bex is not impressed). All is good except the constant rain since we got here (which should go away on our next stop). and we should be updating the blog in a couple of days with more pics. anyway of to eat some beach bbq food, hope all is well with everybody. lots of lve nick xxx
We are in Koh Tao, an island in south of thailand at the moment, Its still hot n pretty humid most days but nothing like singapore. Its been rainy almost constantly! N the skies are always full of cloud so no need for hat n sunscreen really! We havent seen the sun in days! N at night with the fan on in the room, i have to get in my sleeping bag coz i get too cold!! N the rain has come down so hard some nights it wakes us up! I can't believe i'm in thailand sometimes. But the weather is not really affecting us, as the temp. is still ok much better than in bangkok (was unbearable!) Not much else to write yet really! We will update blog when we get to Ko Samui- another island n hopefully the sun will come out n we can get a tan! We have lots to tell u soon!! Glad orals are ok. Guess taz has done hers by now. Tell me how she found it n stuff would be nice to know. We will check are flights before we go. All our prebooked ones we get emailed about before we go n can check in online which is good! I suggest you do the same if possible with your carribean flights. Otherwise when you get to airport everyone will have checked in an got seats together n u guys will be left with whats left! Also all the airplanes now have this thing about carry liquids on the plane. You can check on internet but bascially you cannot carry anything in handluggage bigger than 100ml. N all stuff you do has to be in a sealed plastic bag (they do provide) n go through x-ray machine seperately. This includes all bottle water, deaoderants, make-up- i.e. foundations/moisturisers. Check it, before you go!
Ok thats all really. Stay in touch with all gossip from home! How is dad?? Not too run down i hope! Love to all bex xxxx
