So we spent Friday morning around the pool in Sri Lanka enjoying some last moments of relaxation before we left for Bangkok. At 3pm our epic journey started... we got a tuk tuk to the train station, 3 hour train to Colombo, 2 hour bus to Negombo, 30 min tuk tuk and a 3 hour plane! On the way we met a London guy called rob, we did most of the journey with him and had dinner before getting on our separate planes, us heading to Bangkok, he was going home - he was pretty jealous of our plans!
Our plane took off at 1:30am on Saturday morning and we arrived at the hostel in Bangkok at 8am, however we couldn't check into our room until 2pm so we slept on the hostel sofa for 6 hours! After finally being allowed to go to our dorm, have some more sleep and showered and changed we headed outside into our first night in Bangkok (baby!) We got talking to some of our fellow hostel stayers and about 10 of us headed off into town for drinks and food, it then all got a bit messy! Lots of buckets, beer, clubbing and josh ate a scorpion!

We woke up on the Sunday at about midday with slight headaches! But we didn't want to waste time so we headed to the old town to see the grand palace. Gorgeous grounds and beautiful buildings.
On the way back to the hostel we had to get a water taxi down the chao phraya river and josh thought I had got on with him, as the boat pulled away he turned around and I was standing on the dock looking absolutely terrified! I had no money or phone on me! Luckily some English girls saw what happened and let me borrow some money to get on the next water taxi to try and find josh! I pulled up to the next step and saw josh waiting there for me, the boat was really busy and he couldn't see me so I started shouting his name - next thing I know half the boat is yelling josh josh!

Went out for dinner and drinks with some of the other girls from the hostel on Sunday night, josh went to bed but I stayed up with the girls and crawled into bed at 4:30am!

Sorted out our bus tickets and hostel for Chang Mai today and ate some amazing food in a local just heading out for dinner now in Chinatown and then maybe a ping pong show.... pop pop pop!
