After another 6 and a half hours or so of flying from Dubai I finally arrived into Bangkok.. although it was midday there, in British time it would have been about 7am! I had been hoping to get a lot of sleep on the flight as we left Dubai at around midnight British time however I don't think I got more than a couple and that was spread across the whole flight, waking up every few minutes I never really fell into that deep sleep. As you can imagine by the time I got to Bangkok I was shattered!! I ran into my Brit bud on his way to Christchurch too and he showed me around the airport. He told me about these special lounges you can go to for showers and rest..

We finally found a nice lounge and enquired of the price.. it was 1000 thai baht for a few hours. The lounge provided showers, toilets (obviously), as much food and drink as you like to just walk up to and help yourself, comfy seats to sleep on, tables to sit at and most importantly.. a very speedy wifi service!! Although most of the airports had wifi... the connections were awful and quite often lost!! Although 1000 sounds like a lot.. the man at the desk told us it was only around 22 but worked out at only 20 and my, my, was it worth it!! 

I sat down on one of the chairs and then headed straight to the food and drink! I get fairly travel sick and after not feeling so fresh on the previous flight I didn't want to eat too much, however helped myself to probably 6 or 7 pieces of banana cakes (not all at once of course!!) and a few cheese sandwiches (my fav). What made these sarnies even nicer was that they were just plain basic cheese on plain beautiful white bread! Couldn't ask for anything better! I also had a taste of a thai cuisine which was like fried and favoured chicken on rice..

After a couple of bits to eat I made my way to the private shower rooms! Nothing felt better than that shower the whole journey, however I wish I had taken clean clothes in my hand luggage because nothing felt worse than putting on the leggings, vest and jumper, not to mention underwear, I had been wearing since the last morning when I left Southampton!! 

After updating my parents via email and updating my facebook status, we left the lounge and had a look around the airport. Bangkok was also surprisingly big, but it was so so confusing!! All of it looked the same so you could walk round in circles without even realizing it!! The shops too were designer and pretty flash.. if I hadn't have been so tired I would have headed straight for Tiffany's & Co. :)

After our mouuch we took a seat to rest our arms from our bags and I promptly fell asleep for what seemed like forever, however only ended up being 15 minutes when I looked at the time on my phone!! The boarding time soon came and we headed down to the gate and for Christchurch, via Sydney Australia!!
